SIXTH FORMS TO WORK MORE CLOSELY
In line with Welsh Assembly Government policy, Monmouthshire County Council is to draw up plans to ensure that sixth forms at Caldicot and Chepstow Schools work in a more integrated way. The schools already co-operate in the joint running of some courses. The plans are in very early stages and reports that the two sixth forms are to merge appear to be premature. Andrew Keep, Director of Lifelong Learning at MCC denied that there were any plans to “remove sixth form provision” from any of the county’s secondary schools.

POLICE DENY CLOSURE PLANS
In response to comments from Monmouthshire MP David Davies, Superintendent Dave Johnson denied that there were any plans to close the police station at Caldicot, or elsewhere in Monmouthshire. He sought to reassure the public that although response officers, who compliment the neighbourhood policing teams, were based at Cwmbran, they were deployed to patrol local areas such as Caldicot.

HOUSE PRICE WATCH
The cheapest house advertised in the local press for sale in Caldicot at the end of April 2009 was, as in March, a one bedroom property in Keats Road at £92,950. The most expensive was a six bedroom detached property in Chepstow Road at £325,000.
