BARRIERS CONSIDERERD FOR TOWN CENTRE
Caldicot town council requested that consideration be given for barriers or bollards to be erected to restrict traffic moving into the pedestrianised area of the town centre. The move follows several drivers being issued with £30 fixed penalty notices for driving through the area.

LINK SCHEME DELEYED AGAIN
It was announced that work that was due to start in October 2015 on improving pedestrian access to the town centre from Asda supermarket had been delayed until January 2016.

CALDICOT RESPONDS TO REFUGEE CRISIS
Ineed, a charity based in Monmouthshire and the Wye Valley, began to collect clothing, sleeping bags, food and other supplies at a unit in Old Pill Farm Caldicot for distribution to refugees and displaced persons in Syria and other warzones. Arrangements were being made for a container lorry to take the supplies all the way to Syria.

STUDENT BURSARY
Jessica Moore, a former pupil at Caldicot School, was awarded a £1000 bursary to assist with her degree studies in counselling psychology at Worcester University. The award was made by the university in recognition of her outstanding A level grades.

PROPERTY WATCH
The cheapest property advertised on www.rightmove.co.uk for sale in Caldicot at the end of October 2015 was a three bedroom semi-detached house in Firs Road at £142,950. The most expensive was, as in September, a four bedroom detached bungalow in Church Farm Gardens at £399,950.
