MAN AWARDED MBE
Laurence Taylor of Goldfinch Close Caldicot has been awarded the MBE in
the New Year’s honours list as a result of his work at the Ministry
of Defence Procurement Agency in Bristol. Mr Taylor, aged 48, has worked
for the Ministry of Defence for 26 years.
The work of County Councillor Bill Edwards has been included in a guide
for Welsh councillors as an example of good practice. The recognition
comes as a result of his support for a local campaign to improve play
facilities in Birbeck Road Park which led to the securing of a £40,000
grant form the Welsh Development Agency.
Caldicot Ruby Club has been found innocent of misuse of international
tickets following an enquiry by the Welsh Rugby Union. The enquiry followed
the sale of several tickets issued to clubs by the RFU on the internet
auction site eBay. Several other clubs are still being investigated.
YOUTHS CAMPAIGN FOR CENTRE
A group of Caldicot youths have clubbed together to form an action group
to campaign for the provision of a youth centre in the town. They have
addressed a meeting of the Severnside Area Committee of Monmouthshire
County Council and plan to meet the local MP, Jessica Morden, in January.
