New Traders in Caldicot Goes Pop!

Starting tomorrow, you will have a dog-friendly shop you can visit, right in the heart of the town centre.


Hope Rescue are going to be renting the premises for a week to raise awareness about the great charitable work they do for animals as well as selling products to raise funds.

Hope Rescue is not a rescue in the conventional sense. Established by our Chair of Trustees, Vanessa Waddon, in 2005, we are primarily a co-ordinating rescue saving dogs from emergency situations. The majority of the dogs we help are stray dogs facing destruction after spending their statutory 7 days in the pound. We commit to take all the stray dogs from three Local Authorities in South Wales – Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council, Torfaen County Borough Council and Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council – irrespective of breed, age or medical condition. Our ethos is that “no-one gets left behind and every dog gets a chance”. We also take in dogs from the public as and when we have capacity.


Caldicot Castle are going to build on the success of its first week in the pop up shop by taking another week to hear the views of the members of public about what you would like to happen at Caldicot Castle over the next few years.

You can visit both of these traders from Monday 7th November until Saturday 12th November
