ello and welcome to the October edition of the MK Flyers

Well, the nights are drawing in and it looks as though we’ve seen the last of the summer; can you believe there are already Christmas decorations up in some of the shops? I’ll just be happy to get past Halloween without being forced to surrender my entire chocolate stash to the local ghosts and ghouls. To help with the dark nights, this month’s editions are full of local news and stories from local business and organisations. We have given the MK Flyers a complete new look from this edition, making it a clearer, fresher and throughout the flyers you will see our little white 3D people introducing some great services. We need to name them, so we are running a competition

...........

for you to give them the perfect name. Please see page 22 for details. With so much happening around Milton Keynes it is hard to fit it all in to the welcome page, so please do have a read through or visit our events calendar on www.mkflyersonline.co.uk Not only are there events but there are some great local businesses advertised there too. As a reader of the MK Flyers we would love to know what you think, so please email us at hello@mkflyers.co.uk and we will publish our readers testimonials on our website. www.mkflyers.co.uk

Cloudy2Clear Windows - Service with a smile!

I

t’s been a crazy few months for Cloudy2Clear Windows. The company which specialises in repairing windows which are steamed up, broken or damaged by replacing the panes - not the frames has grown rapidly as homeowners take advantage of their services. Managing Director Billy Harley feels that it’s all about service. ‘Our product is simple. If your double glazing is misted up we can replace the glass at a fraction of the cost of a new window, in any type of frame, and with a new 5 year guarantee. But it’s not just about saving people money, although that obviously helps. Many tradespeople have struggled since last year and I honestly feel that during the good times a minority perhaps didn’t focus on customer care as much as they should have done. We make sure we turn up when we say we will, do the job the

customer requires and leave their house as clean as a whistle. I often get comments back from customers on how they really didn’t expect that sort of service which, in a way, is very sad for the service industry as a whole. ’ Cloudy2Clear service the Milton Keynes, Bedford and Leighton Buzzard areas and Billy is finding that his approach is a major factor in his success. ‘The truth is that it’s not just the personal satisfaction that I get from doing a good job but also it makes good business sense. I get a huge amount of business from friends and family of people I’ve done work for, which just goes to show how much a little bit of effort is appreciated .’

So, if your windows are steamed up, broken or damaged give Billy a cal l for a free quotation on 0800 61 21 118 and he’ll be happy to help!

Nissan Juke 1.5DCI Acenta Premium pack Reviewed 10/09/13

T

he Juke is a little like Marmite; people seem to love it or hate it.

It drives really well; the new Start stop engine is very responsive for only a 1.5 diesel, and despite it’s tall stance it handles very well. Originally built as the Qashqai’s little brother, over the years it has really set a new standard in the Small SUV category. One of the key positives is the high driving position giving you great visibility. Even with all its curves you can see well out of all the windows making it good for around town, but still with the grunt on the motorway if needed. The Juke is aimed at people who want to stand out. There are lots of extras enabling you to really personalise your car, and it is a really different funky looking design. Lots of it’s competitors all look the same but this really does stand out. For me, the biggest down side to this car is the boot. Considering it is touted as a small family car, boot space is limited although you can take the boot tray out making it a bit deeper which

helps. The cabin however has plenty of space for 5 adults with good leg room in the back. The basic Visia model comes standard with nice alloys, AC, electric windows, stability control, and 6 airbags, and if you go one up to the Acenta premium which I tested, it gives you full colour sat nav, reversing camera, bigger alloys, privacy glass, Bluetooth, climate control, USB connection, and sports red interior - so a really good spec!! The diesel versions are particularly good on fuel. The Tekna model also gives you leather and heated seats although to be honest for the extra money the model we tested - the Acenta - is best value for money. MPG = 67.9 Combine d Top speed = 109 0-60 = 11.2 CO2 = 109 On the road price £1 7,790 (Lease price £174 + VAT over 3 years wi th 6 payments up front based on 10k miles a year)

f I could grow only one type of flower then it would have to be the tulip.

Harbingers of warmer days the choice available is mind-blowing. There are frilly parrot tulips bearing fringed petals, sturdy fat-flowered types and graceful plants with lily-like blooms. They are also tremendously accommodating. You can plant them much later than daffodils and narcissi because they don’t need to start producing roots so early. In fact you can plant them from now until Christmas! My mother uses them as annuals and rips them up after flowering but I can’t bear to do that so I plant them deeply and leave them in the garden where they return happily year on year. If you want to use them as disposable bedding you only need to plant them about 10cm / 4 inches deep. If, like me, you treat them as old friends then plant them 23cm / 9 inches deep and they won’t disappoint you. Tulips are wonderful value in containers. As a guide, a 25-30cm / 10-12 inch diameter pot will accommodate a dozen bulbs. For a larger 47.5cm / 19inch pot use 16 –18 bulbs.

Lay the bulbs in an inner and outer circle making sure that no bulb touches either another, or the outside of the pot.

Fill the pot with compost to within 2.5cm / 1 inch of the rim. I finish pots off with strips of daisies or anemones planted around the edge in colours which complement the tulips. Water everything in but shelter the pot from heavy rain so it doesn’t become waterlogged and never water in frosty weather. I use water-retaining granules mixed in with the compost. These help to maintain soil moisture throughout the dormant season. Feed the daisies or anemones throughout their flowering season in the Autumn and the Spring and you should be rewarded with a beautiful display sometime in April or May.

Tips for autumn lawn care

T

he end of the growing season is generally the time when people put away their lawn mower and prepare the garden for winter. However, after the hot dry summer months there some important tasks to be completed.

GreenThumb provide a complete Lawn Treatment Programme throughout the year consisting of weed elimination, moss control and fertiliser applications together with scarification, aeration, disease and pest control treatments to ensure your lawn is amongst the best in your neighbourhood at a cost that is less than doing it yourself. We believe that the more people are aware of a few basic facts the better their lawn will be says Clare from the Milton Keynes branch. With this is mind here are a few seasonal tips which will improve the health of your lawn and get it ready for next year. • Most lawns in the local area are based on a clay sub-surface which tends to be very compacted. Compaction means that rain and nutrients cannot penetrate to the grass roots, resulting in a weakened root system. Over the winter rain water lingers on the surface causing moss to form, whilst in the summer, when the ground is baked solid, rainfall will not absorb effectively. The best treatment for compacted soil is to use a hollow-tine aerator, which takes out plugs of soil, leaving small holes in the lawn that allow the root zone to breathe,

24 mkflyers

improves the uptake of nutrients and reduces lawn compaction. Surface water will also drain away more easily. • Over the summer, whilst the grass is growing vigorously, an accumulation of stems, roots and leaves intermingled with decaying organic matter creates a mat on the surface of the soil. This mat is called thatch and prevents moisture, oxygen and nutrients reaching the roots, where they are needed. It is also an excellent medium for moss to thrive. Scarification is an operation designed to reduce the amount of thatch by a machine with blades and knives which then allows new grass to thrive in the Spring. • Keep mowing your lawn regularly until the grass stops growing. Increase the height of your mower blade, and as always ensure that the blade is sharp. Do not cut your grass any lower than an inch at this time of year. • Clear up fallen leaves regularly. Fallen leaves prevent sunlight reaching the grass which stops the plant producing chlorophyll, leaving the grass a pale yellow instead of green. Leaves also collect water which encourages the dreaded moss to grow underneath. If you would like to know how GreenThumb can help to imp rove your lawn or would just like some advice you can contact Clare and the GreenThumb team by telephone on 01908 850544

Art Buyers Beware!

I

f like us you enjoy visiting galleries and auction houses, and on the odd occasion come across a work of art which you would like to buy, then here are a few things to consider before parting with your money...

Firstly always check out the provenance of the work you are buying. A good gallery will be able to provide tangible evidence that the work is by whom they say it is, with details of the artist, the type of materials used and the date created. If it is an older work, part of the provenance should be a list of previous owners. You also need to know whether the work has been damaged or restored and to what level. Like many of the top auction houses, we use UV light to inspect artwork and it never ceases to surprise us how far some sellers will go to quickly cover the imperfections of a painting for the chance of an overvalued quick sale…

position of your pictures, plus it saves you the hassle of having to take your valued items to a shop for framing. If you would like to consider having items framed, for your home or business, then please call us, our initial consultation is Free…

Ciqo Artworks on 0190 8

…anyway you may already have framed items of value in your home or business, so it is always worth making a few routine checks such as; corroding picture wire, insects under the glass, any evidence of discolouration, cracked or chipped glass and the sealing tape on the back of the frame peeling away. These are just a few signs that the protection the frame should be providing your item, has been compromised. Thankfully the majority of these problems can usually be rectified without the need of a total reframe, and it is something we are able to help you with… Handmade picture frames can be a very cost effective way to transform a space and at Ciqo Artworks our experience has told us it is always best when possible to provide our initial consultation at our clients address. We accurately assess your needs, such as conditions that may affect the hanging

Paul Taylor, partner, commented “Since launching in July, we have received great feedback regarding our services from people who have instructed us. We sold one within hours of it going live online, and another for more than the asking price! One happy customer had this to say: “I have recently used eMoov to sell my property which sold in only four days of being on the market with them. The team that dealt with the sale of my house were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and they have kept me fully informed of the progress of my sale regularly without me even

having to contact them. They were extremely helpful and provided a very professional service. I would recommend them to anyone thinking of selling a property as they have made it so easy and a pleasure dealing with them. Thank you for everything you have all done, you are all truly fantastic!!” With the typical fee being a one off payment of just £395 plus VAT, eMoov Bucks are keen to show anyone thinking of selling their house now of in the near future how they can benefit from their services.

Positive living Are you in the flow? How do you feel about your abundant flow? Is money your friend or your foe? Does it come easily in exchange for your efforts; does it stay and work for you, to uplift and enhance, or does it flow or drain away as fast as it appears? Do you respect it when you have it; do you value and encourage its appearance? Or is money the bane in your life? Is your fortune ‘somewhere out there’ at some other point in future? Do you wish, want and will it to come in? The place you are now is born not only of your choices and decisions but of your conscious and subconscious relationship to health, wealth happiness and success. Sometimes at a very deep level you sabotage your best efforts long before they begin to set in. Thoughts of not enough, of not being good enough are also culprits. No one soul is ‘born’ luckier than the next. All kick and scream their way into the world; all have a soul journey to accomplish. Some may be born into seemingly better positions, but problems large or small are there for all, irrespective of how they appear. (I am I) The life you are living is your story. From adolescence you shape and choose it yourself. No-one else can live your journey; no-one else can fill your shoes; no other soul can turn your fortunes around – but you. You ‘will, choose and think’ all things into being; you decide how you’ll create or react… (I am I) How are you writing your story unfolding – even today? Do you operate from a point of wealth or a place lack? Do you believe life is easy or difficult? When did you last look at your lot from an outsider perspective? You’re wealthy in more ways than you realise. There has never been a time where all things are so easily attainable. You can use your voice and thoughts for any purpose; stand tall and strong in the face of adversity; you can lobby for what you believe in and can consume and attain all you want. From the time you are born you fine-tune your talents to be exactly as you are today, yet still you have much more to grow… Are you living life from a purely physical aspect or have you now embarked on your soul path? Apart from the obvious that you need to survive and live comfortably, you really don’t need too much more. All needs have been admirably met. Yet still you work hard to procure ever more – could you be stuck on a treadmill of acquisition? There are two very separate but completely connected aspects of who you are really – the physical self that you service daily, and the higher ranking spiritual or soul self. Are you aware that both aspects exist?

Everything you’ve ever done has accumulated or dispersed karmic energy. You create all you live, experience and express through the energetic laws of attraction, cause and effect, so if life is not working as you choose, very definite reasons may well be holding you back that you could be adding to daily. No person on the planet is destined to become more successful or better at life than another. The field is equal and open for all to achieve what they wish. If, from a very early age you were taught life is hard, then that is the story version you’ve been living - for you subconsciously bought into that untruth without knowing. If you believe life to be against you – it will prove that it is, because life must always provide what you ask for, even when your thoughts are limiting. If you limit your thoughts you limit yourself, if you buy into lack, more lack you will get… The process is simple, yet powerful and flawless in its dealings. What you’ve been taught to believe isn’t always strictly true – how life unfolds is directed by you. A lifetime upon Earth is short. One hundred years will go in a flash, just like the speed of your own life. We no longer have time to stagnate. A new world view is birthing through and you came to administer your part. Have you ever heard words such as these - to highlight potential that you personally possess? You are not lost – you are found. Life is not hard – it is easy. You are not poor – but incredibly rich, not necessarily in terms of hard cash – but in every other aspect of life and possibilities unfolding and available to you now…. If you’re not happy – work out why. If you don’t feel loved or appreciated – work out why. If your days daily drag, if you’re bored or fed up, look to understand why. Through rights of birth - you absolutely have a right to be happy. Abundance is yours – if you let it flow in – but you must know how to accept it. Life is working on behalf of us all – it does not discriminate, but it can only supply what we’re able to receive; you must find and harness your own flow… Stephanie J.

Shoulder Pain! – Sho What causes impingement syndrome? Impingement occurs to some degree in everyone’s shoulder. Dayto-day activities that involve using the arm above shoulder level cause some impingement. Usually it doesn’t lead to any prolonged pain. But continuously working with the arms raised overhead, repeated throwing activities, or other repetitive actions of the shoulder can cause impingement to become a problem. Impingement becomes a problem when it causes irritation or damage to the rotator cuff tendons.

What are the symptoms? • Generalized shoulder pain when raising the arm out to the side or in front of the body. • Pain makes it difficult for them to sleep, especially when they roll onto the affected shoulder. • Sometimes a catching sensation is felt when you lower your arm. • Weakness and inability to raise the arm may indicate that the rotator cuff tendons may be torn.

How is it diagnosed? The diagnosis of bursitis or tendonitis caused by impingement is usually made on the basis of your medical history and physical examination.

oulder Impingement In some cases, it is unclear whether the pain is coming from the shoulder or a pinched nerve in the neck.

What is the treatment? Nonsurgical treatment: Many cases of impingement can be treated successfully without needing surgery. Resting the sore joint and putting ice on it can also ease pain and inflammation. Your doctor may also refer you for physiotherapy. Your therapist will use various treatments to calm inflammation, including heat and ice. Therapists use hands-on treatments and stretching to help restore full shoulder range of motion. Improving strength and coordination in the rotator cuff and shoulder blade muscles lets the humerus move in the socket without pinching the tendons or bursa under the acromion. If you suffer with Shoulder pain please contact us for some free advice.

Small businesses will lead the way in 2013, says company whose tenants already employ 1000 people

M

Milton Keynes will boom in 2013, says the town’s largest serviced business premises provider, as the number of people employed in its units tops 1000 at the close of 2012.

Bucks Biz, with over 400,000 square feet of space and 150 tenants in Bletchley and Denbigh, says it is already planning more units to cope with the expected growth in demand and bringing forward plans to develop extra space at the huge Interchange House in Howard Way. “Our units currently provide work for around a thousand people and we have seen that figure rise steadily,” said Dominic Muscat, a director of the company that owns the business. “As Milton Keynes business booms, led by small businesses, we are already identifying potential new units that can be converted to provide the premises needed for small companies to thrive without hassle.”

Bucks Biz, with units all over Milton Keynes, is renowned for straight talking and dealing; not hiding costs and not charging for many of the little things that keep businesses ticking, but which can be annoying to the point of distraction. “We really believe that if our customers are happy, then they’ll be free to get on with their businesses, which in turn will expand,” added Dominic.

The Hering Clinic Review by Kelly Thompson

I was given the pleasure of experiencing some beauty treatment from a fantastic team at the The Hering Clinic

T

he Hering Clinic offers integrated treatments and natural products, combined with the latest advances in clinical testing integrated treatments. The Hering Clinic is run by Denise & Nicola who are absolutely fantastic women and have a great sense of humour. On my arrival I was greeted with a lovely and very warm reception by Nicola & Denise. They made me feel very welcome and as we chatted I looked around and got a feeling of tranquility within the place, definitely a place of pure relaxation. Nicola then introduced me to Hannah who was giving me a Full Body Massage. Once in the treatment room Hannah made me feel very comfortable. It was a warm & quite place. Hannah gave me some time to undress & place myself on the massage bed. When she started the massage we chatted until I was so relaxed I had no

energy to talk (which she didn’t mind) I just drifted into my own world of peace & relaxation. When the treatment was over I felt great. The knots in my neck were finally free. Hannah definitely knows what she is doing so I would highly recommend her. I would also advise for those of you looking into COLONIC HYDROTHERAPY …look no further The Hering Clinic is the place to go! Thanks again to you all from a very satisfied customer.

Our firewood is sold and delivered in either Bulk Bags (90x90x90cm), Barrow bags (46x46x87cm) or Van level load (loose). The “Barrow Bag” has been designed for many jobs. It is much larger than the “Net Bags” and yet smaller than the 90x90x90 “Bulk bag” but, has the strength of a 1 ton Bulk bag, this making it very strong and durable so it can be reused many times. With this being smaller than a Bulk bag, the bulk bags need a folk lift to move once filled. The Barrow Bag can be moved by 1 man by hand. Hardwood consists of: Ash, Elm, Oak, Plane, Thorn, Acacia, Cherry, Maple, Sycamore, Beech Softwood consits of: Chestnut, Pine, Lime, Alder, Fir, Larch All of the logs that we sell are from sustainable sources harvested from our Tree Surgery operations throughtout Milton Keynes, Bedford, Northampton, Leighton Buzzard, Aylesbury, Oxford, Banbury, Stevenage, Hemel Hempstead, St Albans, London and surrounding areas. Burning wood as a fuel to warm our homes, heat our water and to cook with is a wonderfully natural way of recycling what could otherwise become just another waste product from industry.
