SUPERMARKET PROPOSALS REMAIN SUSPENDED
Attempts by supporters of the proposal to sell part of the Caldicot School field for a supermarket to persuade Monmouthshire County Council to reconsider its decision to suspend the scheme failed. County Councillors Tony Easson, Jim Higginson and John Marshall argued that the suspension decision was “too hasty” but other councillors argued that it would not be right to go ahead without the support of the town council.

CREDIT UNION HELPERS NEEDED
Gateway Credit Unit, which recently opened at Caldicot Methodist Church, asked for volunteers to help in its work of helping members to save money regularly and to access low cost loans. (Details 01495 750030) The town council made a grant of £500 to the Credit Union.

PLAY FORT DISPUTE SOLVED
The dispute over the play fort at the Castle Inn was settled. The owners were granted permission to move it to another part of the pub garden. (See July 2008)

GRANT TO CHURCH
Caldicot Town Council gave a grant of £500 to Bethany Baptist Fellowship in recognition of its work in the local community.

The cheapest house advertised in the local press for sale in Caldicot at the end of August 2009 was a two bedroom semi-detached home in Deepweir Gardens at £139,950. The most expensive was a six bedroom detached property in Chepstow Road at £369,950. (See May 2009)
