Northwood intersection shops

Jack & Co and BP Service Station

They have a great range of delicious sandwiches and salads and everything is made on site all day, every day. They also stock a great range of gourmet meats and cheeses, prepared meals and fancy pants ice creams, desserts and drinks too.

Trendsetter Travel & Cruise

Established in 1992, Trendsetter Travel & Cruise are small but successful, with a mission to do the best by their clients. Adrienne Witteman is the Managing Director of the company.

When Trendsetter Travel was established in April 1992, we had no guaranteed clients. As a completely new business, we knew the only way to survive and succeed was to make each travel experience count. We believed that happy customers would come back… and they did… they told their friends and business colleagues. So here we are still, loving every minute of what we do!
