COUNCIL CALLS FOR YOUTH CENTRE
Councillors from Monmouthshire County Council and Caldicot Town Council met to discuss proposals for a youth centre in Caldicot. It was stated that such a centre would help to tackle the problem of anti-social behavior in the town. It has been suggested that part of the £250,000 cost could come from the proceeds of the sale of the school playing field.

NEW COUNCILLOR ELECTED
Plaid Cymru increased its representation on Caldicot town council when John Marshall won the Dewstow ward by-election. Mr Marshall, who replaces Labour’s Sue Williams, polled 162 to Labour’s 96. The turnout was just 18%. There will be a by-election in Caldicot’s West End ward on 22 September.

INDUSTRIAL ESTATES TO GET FACE LIFT
Pill Farm and Severnbridge Industrial Estates are to benefit from Welsh Assembly and County Council grants totally around £30,000 for landscaping and improved security.
