Canadian company Mitel which has a site at Castlegate Business Park, Caldicot, was bought by private investment firm Searchlight in a deal reported to be worth around $2bn.
MILLION POUND WINNER
Self-employed Caldicot gardener Jake Hodge won a million pounds on a lottery scratch card. Jake was living with his mum but as a result of his win was able to buy a house for himself, his partner and their three year old son, buy a brand new car and get cosmetic work on his teeth – with plenty of change left over! The card was bought at the Co-op in Newport Road.
A meeting of Caldicot residents voiced concerns over plans for 130 new homes to be built on the Church Farm site. The plans had yet to be considered by Monmouthshire County Council planners.

Caldicot Comprehensive School collected £500 worth of food for Caldicot food bank. Two pupils had also been volunteering at the food bank as part of their Welsh Baccalaureate course. Jessica Morden MP visited the school to thank the students
