Spring is fast approaching, the snow is trying to melt and you can’t help but think there is a bit of a mystical air around Milton Keynes at the moment. In keeping with the seasons, I have kicked off some new projects and campaigns around Milton Keynes and already we are seeing results.

Rapid Sales Solutions. The Expo will see businesses from across Milton Keynes and afar coming together to network and also showcase what they do. I am delighted to have managed to have secured the new Business Minister Lord James Younger to attend and open the event, to be held at the MK Dons Stadium from 8.45am onwards. Milton Keynes has one of the largest small business start up rates in the country and this is a brilliant way to bring them together to encourage collaborations which wouldn’t necessarily occur otherwise.

Last month saw the first ever MP’s Jobs Fair for young people in MK. Unemployment in Milton Keynes is low at 3.1% but youth unemployment is slightly higher so Iain Stewart, MP for MK South and I decided we wanted to do something about it. With over 33 businesses in attendance including Home Retail Group, Santander, Railcare, Network Rail and Whitbread (to name a few), with real jobs on offer, we held the jobs fair at the Buszy in Central Milton Keynes. Over 300 young people attended the event and already we have been contacted by companies saying they have offered jobs to some of those in attendance. It was a great day and I am really pleased it helped lift some young people out of unemployment. I know Iain and I are keen to make it a regular thing and we are hoping to hold another one in the not so distant future. On the 8th March Milton Keynes will see its first Business Expo being held by Victoria Beale from

Focussing on helping businesses, I have been working closely with the market traders from Milton Keynes in order to ensure their place remains in the heart of our city. Last month I delivered a petition of over 10,000 signatures to this effect, to the Chief Executive of the council and I know the council have paid particular attention. With the application for the new Primark in CMK being withdrawn following the council’s recommendation for refusal, it is clear that they are sticking to their word and I hope that we will now see some improvements made to the market area, led by the market traders. I hope you have a very happy Easter and as ever if there is anything I can do to help or you would like me to visit your organisation, please get in touch with me on 01908 686830 or check out my new look website at www.lancaster4mk.com.

Thoracic outlet syndrome Thoracic outlet syndrome involves the compression of nerves and arteries as they pass between the anterior and middle scalene muscles in the neck. The symptoms: Thoracic outlet syndrome affects the nerves and the arteries passing into the hands and arms. If the compression is affecting the nervous system, then symptoms can include pain, numbness and tingling fingers, pain in the neck and shoulders, aching arms and hands or a weak grip. If the compression is affecting the circulatory system, then you could see a discoloration of the hands or arms, a weak pulse or arm pain and swelling. These symptoms are caused by decreased blood flow into the arms through the subclavian vein and artery.

be stress caused by a high paced desk job, where the person slumps into bad posture as the day goes by. It could also be caused by repetitive lifting of the arms and over-use of the wrists and arms, such as swimmers, rock climbers or weightlifters. It could also come about through trauma, such as a car accident causing damage to the clavicle.

So what is going on?

What can be done?

The neck consists of seven vertebrae stacked one on top of the other. Small openings between the vertebrae allow for nerves to exit the spinal cord and into the body, in this case the arms. As the nerves leave the spinal cord, they form a web-like interchange, rather like criss crossing highways complete with exit ramps, called the brachial plexus. Two muscles extend down from the neck and attach to the first rib underneath the collar bone. These muscles, the anterior and middle scalenes, pass either side of the brachial plexus. The image shows the proximity of the scalene muscles to the brachial plexus and blood vessels.

The scalene muscles can be released using pressure techniques to the muscles in the neck. Often times, there will be a trigger point, a hard muscular knot, just under the clavicle, at the base of the front of the neck. This can be released using pressure into the trigger point until the point looses sensitivity. Mobilisation techniques can be used to restore movement to the neck, freeing the neck and allowing you to turn the head further than previously allowed. There may be cases where thoracic outlet syndrome is not caused by muscular tension. This may require surgery to alleviate.

What causes it? Muscles can become stressed and tense from continuous punishment. An example of this could

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

“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 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.

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.

“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.

The Well Being Therapy Centre was established in March 2011 by two very experienced counsellors, Lynda Gilbert and Marise Cohen, to offer a new counselling service to the people of Milton Keynes Originally based at The Well in Willen, we moved in September 2011 to The Quaker Centre in Downhead Park.

to be listened to and given a voice in a non-judgemental way, as well as to be helped to see what may be underlying problems in order to begin moving forward.

We were immediately inundated with enquiries, and such was the demand for our counselling service that eventually we took on two new affiliates, Kulwant Kaur and Margaret Fensome, to accommodate this demand.

Our original intention in setting up the business was to reach as many people as possible, and with this in mind we have kept our fee at a reasonable rate of ÂŁ35 per session, with a limited number of places available at the concessionary rate of ÂŁ15 for people on benefits. As there are four of us we also have a wide range of availabilities, and can offer appointments every weekday including evenings, and also Saturday mornings. We look forward to being able to help you; please contact us on 01908 786242 or 07763 127852 or email us at info@thewellbeingtherapycentre.co.uk

We are all highly qualified and experienced, and between us offer help in a wide range of areas, including depression, anxiety, stress, relationship and family problems, infertility and adoption issues, addictions, bereavement, loss and compulsive eating. Couples counselling will also shortly be available. Many people have found that sitting down with a counsellor and talking through their concerns has helped them to see things from a different perspective. It can be very comforting

Here’s what our customers say about mkflyers... Thank you for the excellent work you have carried out to successfully support and improve our local advertising with Your Local Flyer over the past 2 years. The whole process is simple, from your help initially designing our advert, through final proof sign off, print and web advert. The really good news for C & R Technologies Ltd is that we are seeing a great return on our investment in advertising on a monthly basis with you. For every pound we spend we are seeing a £4 return; now that is the Business at Our Fingertips. To sum up, I have found the MK Flyers Team to be reliable, efficient and very cost effective for local advertising in print and on the web. I have no hesitation in recommending you. Stephen Roberts, C&R Technologies
