NOTES FROM THE APRIL 2017 MEETING OF NORTHWOOD PARISH COUNCIL:

.

PUBLIC FORUM
There was one member of the public in attendance who referred to the matter of alleged speeding along Nodes Road, particularly in the vicinity of the junction at Four Cross, Northwood. The clerk was requested to write to Hampshire Police suggesting for a meeting to take place, on site, between all the relevant parties.
.
TO CONSIDER THE APPOINTMENT OF A CONTRACTOR FOR PRUNING AND ONGOING MAINTENANCE OF THE SIX GARDENS IN NORTHWOOD
The clerk advised of the problems in obtaining three quotations for undertaking the necessary work. Mr T Hewitt had provided an excellent service during 2016, going beyond the specification outlined. His quotation had also not increased. It was decided Mr T Hewitt of Follow Your Dreams2016 be appointed to prune and provide ongoing maintenance of the six gardens in Northwood, at a total cost of £360.
.
TO CONSIDER THE PURCHASE OF ADOBE ACROBAT PRO
The cost to purchase Adobe Acrobat Pro was £285 for the Standard version and £445 for the Pro version. Cllr J Nicholson volunteered to investigate whether there were any other applications/software available, which could prove just as suitable for the Parish Council’s needs.
.
TO NOTE THE LATEST PROPOSALS REGARDING THE POST OFFICE SERVICE IN COWES
Councillors noted the letter from Mr N Ennis, Network Transformation Programme Director to Miss S Calver, the Postmistress at the Pallance Road Post Office. This confirmed her existing contract until 30 September 2017. It was reported that Andrew Turner MP continued to press for a suitable resolution on the relocation of the Post Office service in Cowes. However, there was no further update on the matter to report. It was advised that Cowes Town Council were to consider making inquiries into possible, suitable venues for further ATM machines in the town, due to the closures of HSBC and Lloyds Bank, since the beginning of the year.
.
PICNIC TABLE
The clerk advised that the second picnic table had been delivered to the residence of Mr Derek Smith. He had kindly installed this on the play area with the assistance of Ian and Charlie Lallow and Paul Kirkpatrick. Councillors expressed their grateful thanks to them all. There was no further update on the position of the first picnic table, which had not weathered very well since its installation, and had been collected by HMP IW.
