CALDICOT 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.

COUNCILLOR WINS RECOGNITION
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.

RUGBY CLUB EXONERATED
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.

CALDICOT 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.
