CALDICOT AUTHOR’S FIRST BOOK
Caldicot author Richard Pitman signed a five book deal with Plymouth-based publisher Ghostly Publishing. The fantasy books for children feature a character called Jimmy Threepwood.

THEFTS AT CASTLE
A number of thefts from campers took place in the grounds of Caldicot Castle during the Volkswagen festival over the week-end of 21-22 July.

TIME CAPSULE BURIED
Pupils from the future Dewstow Primary School buried a time capsule on the school site. The school is being built on the site of the old Green Lane School. The capsule contained a school uniform, a school lunch menu, a CD of the new school song and copies of local newspapers.

MORE USERS OF MOBILITY SERVICE
Volunteers who run the shopmobility scheme in Caldicot town centre reported a recent increase in usage. The scheme had been in danger of closure due to lack of uptake.

CRIME WATCH
The online “crime map” published by the Home Office showed that in June 2012 there were 49 reported incidents of crime and anti-social behaviour in Caldicot. (Note that from September 2011 new categories have been added, giving more details of offences formerly listed under ‘Other Crimes’.)
