Challenge House Yellow Car Review MP Diary What’s On

2 18 25 26

Hello and welcome to the February edition of the YourLocalFlyer

January is typically the month for new resolutions and setting goals, have you made yours yet and how many have already fallen off the wagon! I typically do not set a New Year resolution, as I am VERY bad at sticking to it. So this year I will carry on doing what I enjoy doing. One thing I did last year was to move the Your Local Flyer to a new office, We moved into Challenge House in Bletchley and from the moment we did I have not looked back. If you are thinking that a new office in 2017 is the way forward or if you just require a meeting room for the day, I would highly recommend popping down and seeing what is on offer. See page 2 for more information. This year sees the introduction of MK City Expo, a showcase of local experts from every walk of life and industry. For more information about MK City Expo please visit www.mkcityexpo. co.uk Let’s talk Valentines Day! What are your plans this year? Have you sorted out that special something for the special someone in your life? Intu Milton Keynes have again given us a few gift ideas for you. Please see page 15. Remember, if you can’t find what your looking for in Your Local Flyer check out the online directory at www.yourlocalflyer. co.uk/online where there is a list of businesses. Should you want to register your business on online you can do so for free with upgrade options for a later date.

Until next month,

Audi A4 2.0TDi 190hp Sport Saloon The Audi A4 is one of the best cars I have driven, for the price, with plenty of gadgets for the techies. Its closest rivals include the ubiquitous BMW 3 Series, the similarly popular Mercedes C-Class and the sharp-driving Jaguar XE.

PERFORMANCE: 5 Stars The Audi A4 comes in a varied engine range. The 2.0TDi 150hp is a great engine with great economy, however if you want a little more poke to be the quickest to 30mph then either the 2.0TDi 190hp or the 3.0TDI 218hp. If you love your petrol motors then the 1.4TFSI 150hp or the 2.0TFSi 187hp are the ones for you. All very economical and lovely to drive, to be honest, Audi don’t produce bad cars…

COMFORT/HANDLING: 4 Stars When ordering your new A4 have the leather interior, don’t get me wrong, it’s very comfortable but I feel the leather seats would finish it off in the SE and Sport models. Heated too as it’s not getting any warmer… One of the things I love about the Audi A4 is how everything is at your fingertips. From the Satnav to the 3 Zone climate control for the people in the back. I also love how you can adjust the ride style, so if you wake up in the morning wanting to race everything on the road, then stick it in Dynamic mode and away you go. It’ll also stiffen up the suspension and steering. Or if your cruising the vast motorway system then stick it in Comfort mode and just breeze over the lumps and bumps in the road.

INTERIOUR/EXTERIOUR: 4 Stars The interior in the Audi A4’s are very refined, As mentioned before, you have everything at your fingertips which is great for comfort but also safety. Audi have thought of almost everything when it comes to the vast cabin space. Even down to little things like extending the drivers and passengers seat to support more of your legs. Audi have produced the A4 since 1995 and I must admit, when I saw The Transporter, I thought it looked amazing, I think it has gone from strength to strength. Very slick and elegant even down to the LED indicators on the S-Line model.

extra.

The Audi A4 in general is a great all round, practical vehicle. If you have a family with a cavernous boot or a company car driver who like that little

You won’t go wrong with this car.

You may pay attention to how your brand looks, but have you ever considered how it smells or sounds? To relate with a customer through sight, means thoughts being processed via the cortex, a relatively straightforward practice.

February 2017

MP’s Diary Milton Keynes is officially 50! On 23rd January, the day the Charter was signed 50 years ago, I attended a celebration at Bletchley Park. The Queen was represented by the Lord Lieutenant, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher and the High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, Milly Soames, led the VIP list. Many local business people and local politicians joined in the celebrations. Looking at the list of events already planned for the year there should be something to enable everyone in Milton Keynes to join the fun. The events that are already planned are listed on the MK50 website www.mk50.co.uk Why not run your own event? The website provides guidance on how to organise your own event, so please celebrate the 50th Anniversary by joining in major events, running your own, or better still both! 2017 will see the start of the negotiations for the UK to exit the European Union. As I write this the exact timescale is yet to be published, but Theresa May and the Government is committed to honouring the wishes of the people. I will vote in Parliament to respect this view. In my role as Parliamentary Private Secretary to Dr Liam Fox, the Secretary of State for International Trade, I am working towards increasing the amount of goods and services the UK can sell to other countries, as well as increasing inward investment. These initiatives are in addition to those designed to maintain a strong trading relationship with EU countries after the UK has exited; after all we traded with all the countries before the EU was formed and many of them

since the UK joined the EU in 1973. Middleton Hall was alive on the weekend of 27th and 28th January when the bi-annual job show took place. It was good to see that the organisations exhibiting ranged from nationally known household names to emerging local companies, both of which need to draw on the many talents of the people of Milton Keynes. With an unemployment rate of just 1.1%, the lowest for years, there are plenty of opportunities to reduce that even further as well as offering those in employment the chance to move. The job shows when coupled with the annual National Apprenticeship Show, this year’s is on 13th and 14th March at the Arena:MK, evidences what a vibrant economy we have in and around a 50-years old new town! I hope to meet many of you during the numerous MK50 and other events I will be attending this year.
