At the AGM of the Northwood Community Partnership, Sergeant Julie Cocks reported that there had been complaints where a number of ‘older’ local teenagers had been responsible for anti-social behaviour. Incidents reported include threatening behaviour, particularly towards vulnerable residents (i.e. small children using the park and older residents living nearby). Vandalism and criminal damage to village furniture were reported to the police, which originates from this particular group.

One of the circumstances of this has led to the goal posts once again being moved, by the Council. In addition to this graffiti has also been removed from the play equipment and nearby property. The police are anxious to take action against this group of teenagers, and have subsequently made this a priority.

On other matters Sgt Cocks emphasised that although PC Mark Thomas is our beat officer, if you have an item to report, you should do so immediately. If Mark is available at the time he will attend the scene himself. Sgt Cocks also suggested that residents should always dial 999 when witnessing any perceived criminal act being committed.  If in any doubt always call 999.

For minor enquiries Sgt Cocks suggests either telephoning the new 101 number, emailing Mark on, or calling 0845 045 45 45. For further information contact: Paul Fuller on 01983 289595, or John Pullen (Neighbourhood Watch) on 01983 281250.

The Community Partnership held its AGM on Friday 5th May.

Outgoing Chairman, Paul Fuller, paid tribute to all Members of the Partnership for taking the village from strength-to-strength over the last three years. The outgoing Vice-Chairman, Colin Palmerton, was elected to serve as Chairman of the Community Partnership for the coming year.  Ron Willis was elected as Vice-Chairman, David Miller would act as Co-ordinator for the Parish Plan, Anne Jonas maintained her position as Treasurer, as did Eileen Palmerton, Secretary.  It was agreed by the Partnership to pursue the option of becoming the Projects arm for the new Management Committee.

At the meeting held on Tuesday 25th April, Paul Fuller was elected as Chairman, whilst Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator, John Pullen, became Vice-Chairman. Peter Brooker, Colin Cramp, Cllr. Roger Mazillius, David Miller, Eileen Palmerton and Ron Willis were all appointed by the Isle of Wight Council to serve on the Village’s Management Committee.

Urgently required: Secretary for Northwood Village Management Committee.
The new shadow Parish Council requires a Secretary to take and circulate minutes and agendas for future meetings. The Secretary would be expected to write and receive correspondence, and to act as a principal point of contact to and on behalf of the Northwood Village Management Committee. Initially the Secretary would work up to 10 hours per month, this being reviewed after six months. There has been a small fund set aside by the NVMC to pay any secretary an honorarium. This will be negotiated prior to appointment.

If you are interested and wish to receive further information or details of the Job Description, this is available from Paul Fuller on 01983 289595 or via email:; the Village Notice Board in the Horseshoe Car Park or from the Northwood Village Website.
