elcome to your March edition of the mkflyers. Another GREAT year. This March we celebrate our 8th birthday delivering local business to the residences of Milton Keynes. What has happened over the past year? So much I do not have space to write all it here. Two of the main things that happed were the launch of yourlocalmap, your pocket size guide to Milton Keynes. yourlocalmap is a pocket size map outlining the wonders we have in MK and showcasing some of the fantastic venues, businesses and activities we have here too. However, it is not only a map, but a mobile app too, working with Google Maps on your mobile devise directing you straight to your place of interest. To see how to download your app please visit The other was Kelly joining us back in June 2013. Kelly joined us as office support and has brought a “can do” attitude and helped with the growth of mkflyers ever since. She not only deals with all aspects of the day to day running of the office but keeps Steve and I in check.


This edition has, again, some great advertisers such as, The Casino MK, an event being hosted by Costco, to the newest Beauty and Tattoo salon, Elixir in Crownhill. If you are expecting a new addition to the family or know someone who is, then I can highly recommend Bump Start in Whaddon. I can recommend them as Kim and I frequented there when we were expecting Harry and now again that number 2 is on it’s way. Roll on May. Can I please take this opportunity to thank both our valued advertisers and our equally important readers who’s feedback is always welcomed and keeps us going. If you would like to tell us what you think of mkflyers please email us at Until next month.

Cloudy2Clear Windows - Service with a smile!


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!

Vauxhall Vivaro 2.0 CDTi SWB 115ps Sportive 2.7T Reviewed 14/02/14

W hite Van Man!!

A van is a van, isn’t it? There are millions of them on the road from removal men, tradesmen, caterers, you name a business and there will normally be a commercial vehicle used.

of all, it has cup holders!!

When I first looked at the van I thought it looked a bit too white. The mirrors and bumpers were colour coded and I think with black mirrors and bumpers it gives a nice contrast. The engine on this van is a 2.0 CDTi, so not a massive engine but then it’s a medium sized van so it still needs to be economical. It was nice to drive, not too bumpy and has a few key things that every tradesman wants…….. A CD player with USB connection, remote control locking, comfortable driving position but most important

Visually, the UK-built Vivaro makes a clear professional statement, the Sportive models, in particular, benefitting from front fog lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, body-colour rear light mouldings and door mirror housings. Inside, the Vivaro is as functional as ever with a stylish yet practical facia, superb ergonomics and a host of intelligent storage facilities. The van was fully ply lined and would fit an 8ft x 4ft sheet of ply or plasterboard in. The Vivaro comes in a range of rear internal sizes from 2415mm-2815mm in length and 1387mm-1913mm in height with various payloads. There are also many upgrades available too including Sat Nav, roof rack, cruise controls etc. You don’t have to have white there is a range of 9 colours available. Let Carnoisseur quote you happy today! MPG = 37.7 Combine d Top speed = N/A 0-60 = N/A CO2 = 199 On the road price £ 19,303.33+ VAT (Lease price £209.99 +vat over 3 years wi th 6 payments up front based on 10k miles a year)

Dear valued reader of the MK Flyer

the out-sourcing of their cleaning, they get back their most precious commodity of all, their time. It gives our clients the opportunity to enjoy the weekend, without the worry of having to do the cleaning.

At Time For You Milton Keynes we have come to the point where we have been operating our domestic cleaning company for 15 years. Currently we have a database of over 60 independent cleaners working in over 350 homes each and every week. In one of the UK’s fastest growing cities we are expecting a prosperous future for all those in Milton Keynes which happens to be one of the most dynamic places in the country.

So the reason we are in business at Time For You is to help people, there are two sides to our coin and I look forward to enjoying another 15 years in business. Our long-term plan includes helping more people get into flexible and independent work. We promise to support those that want to work hard and show a passion for what they do by introducing them into work that suits them. We also promise to deliver an exceptional service to more homes in the Milton Keynes area, helping people get more of their time back.

As a business, we are really proud to be able to offer an opportunity to cleaners, for them to work for themselves, choose flexible hours and introduce them to work that they may not have been able to find elsewhere. For many, especially in hard times getting a job that’s flexible and suitable to their needs is near impossible. So choosing to be an independent cleaner is a fantastic option for those who want to work but feel like they have no avenues to explore. On the other hand we are also proud of what we help our clients achieve. By introducing and supporting our clients with

Thanks to Stuart and the MK Flyers team for their support over the years, we owe a lot of our success to them.

MP’s Diary MK Community Bank I was delighted to officiate at the opening of two new banks in Milton Keynes, both of which were in the same afternoon! The MK Community Bank was launched at the Council Offices and along with Edith Bald, the Cabinet Member for Finance and my colleague Iain Stewart MP for Milton Keynes South; I was delighted to endorse the not-for-profit co-operative for Milton Keynes residents. Very different to a high street bank, the credit union is run and owned by all their members. Business is conducted in a way that it is able to contribute towards the local community and funds are managed in an ethical manner. Established in 2006 the MK Community Bank has over 1000 members and I am very pleased to say that being a member myself for over 3 years, I am naturally keen to support this local initiative and watch its development. Metro Bank There was no mistaking the opening of the Metro Bank in Midsummer Arcade. I was greeted by live music, stilt walkers, free popcorn and a Welcome to Bump Start, the baby shop at Whaddon. We stock everything you could need for your baby, from car seats to cots to carriers. We pride ourselves on our product knowledge and will help find the ideal products for you. We look forward to seeing you soon.

We are just 10 minutes from both Milton Keynes and Buckingham

dog! Chairman, Vernon W. Hill II is an avid dog lover and so they actively welcome dogs into all their branches with fresh bowls of water and dog treats. Vernon’s dog even has his own twitter account! A member of the launch team commented, that in the months leading up to the opening of their 25th branch, Milton Keynes was the most welcoming and open minded city they had ever visited. With their revolutionary opening times and no nonsense banking methods I am delighted to welcome Metro Bank to Milton Keynes. I am also particularly pleased to learn the team will be back again later in the year to open a branch in Oakgrove.

his month the days get longer and the sun gets stronger...we hope! However March is famously temperamental and if the soil where you are is still wet and cold then it’s wise to delay planting and sowing until the temperature rises. Plant nutrient reserves are low at this time of year so, as the soil warms up, it’s time to think about fertiliser. Many gardeners are a bit frightened of fertiliser. All those chemical symbols on the side of the packet are rather reminiscent of school chemistry lessons. In fact the basics are quite simple. NPK - This can be observed on the side of most fertiliser packages. The letters stand for: N - Nitrogen, P - Phosphorous, K - Potassium Together these are known as the macro-nutrients and each of them has its own use. Nitrogen primarily feeds the leafy above-the-ground parts of the plants. Phosphorous promotes strong roots. Potassium makes grass hardier, promotes germination and improves vegetable and fruit yields. The proportions of each macro-nutrient will be printed on the packet.

Equal amounts of each nutrient make for a good general purpose fertiliser. A lawn will need a good balance of nitrogen and phosphorus to guarantee lush green grass with a healthy root system capable of withstanding dry spells. Fruiting plants need higher proportions of potassium. There are other macro-nutrients: Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen, which plants obtain freely from the air and water; and calcium, magnesium and sulphur, which should be present in any good general purpose fertiliser. Plants also need micro-nutrients: Iron, Manganese, Zinc, Boron and Molybdenum. Plants take all these nutrients and build everything they need from scratch, including vitamins. What plants cannot do is absorb vitamins directly from things such as pet food, milk or so-called fertilisers which contain vitamins, proteins and fats. So don’t be intimidated by fertiliser. Decide what your plants need then read the label. It’s easy as ABC.. or rather NPK.

Caution! Don’t over-do it! It’s best to feed little and often. Don’t fertilise in direct sun or the leaves may scorch. Wait until the soil has warmed Keep out of reach of children!

It’s our World. Let’s walk it.


ouldn’t it be great to see people, right across the world walking to raise money for cancer charities, helping to combat the fight with cancer, and raising awareness of the disease itself? This is the aim of World Walk which is planned to take place between 10th and 17th May this year. Since being diagnosed with Secondary Breast Cancer in November 2012, I have met many people who have fought hard to beat cancer. Some have won their battles but others, some old and dear friends, sadly lost. Seeing first hand all the sadness and anxiety that cancer brings to both patients and their families, I felt compelled to do something to help speed up the cure. In the UK, the charities being sponsored are Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Trust

and Willen Hospice. Most sponsored walks will take place on Saturday 10th May 2014 and will be held across the UK and other countries. The walk is open to all ages and abilities. In Milton Keynes, we are walking around the Peace Pagoda at Willen on Saturday 10th May. But you don’t have to join that one if you think it’s too much or can’t make that day. You can create your own personal challenge and do that walk instead, at any time during the World Walk week. Take a look at our website to see what other walks are being arranged. You might prefer a bigger challenge and want to come along on the Hadrian’s Wall Walk which starts on 12th May. You will also be able to register your place or if you don’t want to walk, make a donation. The website address is If you don’t want to walk, but do want to take part by volunteering to help out on the day, or if you are proficient walker and would like to help lead one of our walks, we would love to hear from you. You can contact us via our web page. The registration fee is £8.00 (£4.00 for under 18’s). This money covers the running costs, i.e. insurance, licences etc. and all walkers will receive a wristband and pen so that they can write the name of a loved one on it that they have lost, or that is suffering or has survived cancer, dedicating their walk to them.

It’s our world. Let’s wal k it and make a huge differe nce

What on earth is Korfball?


ilton Keynes has a thriving korfball community, but most people won’t have a clue what it is!

Korfball is a bit like netball and bit like basketball - but better!* It’s played in mixed sex teams of 4 men and 4 women on a court similar sized to basketball. Korfball is played indoors during the winter and outdoors during the summer. The aim of the game is to work with your team-mates to get the ball through the hoop (Korf) Men can only mark men and women can only mark women and unlike netball, you can’t shoot if your defender is within touching distance of you – so you need to move quick! So now you know what korfball is, why not come down and give it a go? MK Lakers Korfball club are always looking for new and enthusiastic members, we train twice a week on a Monday and Wednesday and play league matches on a Sunday. It’s a superb way to get fit and meet lots of new people. As a newbie, you get your first two sessions for FREE and the next two pay as you go - after that, you can decide to join us for only £20 per month. Less than most gym fees and much more fun and sociable! *in our opinion!

Small businesses will lead the way in 2014, says company whose tenants already employ 1000 people


Milton Keynes will boom in 2014, says the town’s largest serviced business premises provider, as the number of people employed in its units tops 1000 at the close of 2013.

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.
