CALL FOR VOTE OVER SUPERMARKET PLAN
A group of Caldicot residents called upon Caldicot town council to hold a referendum on whether up to four acres of the comprehensive school grounds should be sold for a new supermarket.  Monmouthshire County Council has resurrected the proposals after they were suspended in 2009 due to local opposition.  The town council have called a public meeting to be held at 6pm on Thursday 28th April at the school.  

PUPILS TO BENEFIT FROM ICT INVESTMENT
Pupils aged 14-16 at Caldicot School will be amongst the fist to benefit from a £14 million scheme to extend the use of information technology across the curriculum.  £3.5 million will be spent on laptops across Monmouthshire and Torfaen plus £550,000 to prepare classrooms for video conferencing and £1 million on wireless points. 

CRIME FALLING
The online “crime map” published by the Home Office showed that in February 2011 there were 59 incidents in Caldicot, the lowest figure since the maps were first produced in December 2010.  (www.police.uk)
