Veteran County Councillor Graham Powell has thrown down the gauntlet to
his old Labour Party comrades by standing as an independent candidate
in Caldicot’s Severn Ward in the County Council elections. Councillor
Powell was dropped by the Labour Party following a number of disciplinary
issues and separate criminal charges, which were later dropped. (See Archive)
SEEK CHURCH STATUS?
Governors of Caldicot Comprehensive School have started to investigate
the possibility of applying for Voluntary Aided status. This would turn
the school into a “church school” under the control of a new
Board of Governors, the majority of whom would be appointed by the Church
in Wales. A spokesperson for the school stressed that no decisions had
been made and that at this stage governors were merely seeking information.
Seven cygnets have disappeared from the lake in Caldicot Country Park.
Park wardens fear the birds have been stolen.
Caldicot town councillor Dave Evans was attacked and knocked to the ground
by two youths who attempted to rob him. Two youths have been arrested
in connection with the attack.
Six people have been arrested and charged with obtaining money by deception.
The arrests follow complaints that a team of bogus callers was knocking
on doors asking for donations to “Volunteers of International Students."
