The Town Council have extended the static gym equipment sited at Northwood Recreation Ground. Six pieces of mobile gym equipment, which have been selected to give users the opportunity to exercise different parts of the body, have been added to the existing outdoor gym. The gym is already proving to be a very popular addition to this well-used recreational area. We hope members of the public will enjoy using the new equipment.

SEAFRONT SHELTER INSTALLED
The Town Council is delighted to announce that a new Shelter has been installed on the seafront along Egypt Esplanade between Cowes and Gurnard which will provide a much needed place to escape the elements, or just somewhere to sit and enjoy the views.
We hope that residents and visitors to Cowes will enjoy this seafront shelter for many years to come.

Islanders have recycled 40 per cent more natural Christmas trees in 2017 compared to 2016. This year, 2174 bookings were made to collect trees; which are then sent for composting, compared with 1530 bookings last year. This year’s Christmas stars on the Christmas tree recycling league were Cowes, with residents in the town making 428 bookings. Ryde were second with 309 and Newport third with 284. Each of the towns significantly increased the amount of trees recycled compared to 2016, with Cowes residents almost doubling the amount of bookings made.
Well done Cowes!
