August 2012  

BUSINESSMAN JAILED
Paul Dallimore of Wentwood View was imprisoned for 15 months after being found guilty along with Alun Weeks of Cardiff of carrying out an unauthorised business. They were found not guilty of conspiracy to commit fraud. The judge said that their company, Global Microcap, was “a vehicle for fleecing investors”.

CARRY ON CRUISING
A limousine hire business was told that it will need to reduce noise levels if it is to continue operating from a unit at Symondscliff Way. Residents had complained about noise from ‘Limo People’ drivers and fuel pumps.

SCHOOL PITCH REFURBISHED
A sports pitch at Caldicot School was refurbished during the school holidays as part of the deal which saw part of the school field being sold off for a new supermarket.

FLY NUISANCE
Residents in Estuary View complained of swarms of flies around their homes. They claimed the flies were the result of waste lorries being parked at the nearby Severn Bridge Industrial Estate.

CELTIC CHAMP
Caldicot student Melissa Arthur, aged 17, won a bronze medal in the long jump at the Celtic Games in Aberdeen.

TUNING UP
Members of Caldicot Male Voice Choir took part in a sponsored cycle ride from Brecon to Caldicot to raise funds for their golden anniversary celebrations in 2013.

BIKE STOLEN
A mountain bike was stolen when a garage was broken into at Wentwood View.
