MK December 18
From the Editor
Well that came around quick, didn't it!? How on earth is it Christmas already? More to the point, how on earth is it almost 2019...
Some amazing news from Pulse Magazine HQ - we've been nominated for a prestigious business award. Namely, the SME MK & Buckinghamshire Business Awards in the Best Customer Service category. To say we are thrilled is an absolute understatement; we are ecstatic! You see, the award isn't an award we entered as a business - we were nominated by our customers. How cool is that?! We have until the end of November to gain more votes and are notified in early December if we have made it through to the finals and to the glitzy award evening. Everything is crossed!
So this month there is no escape - unless you have ear muffs and blinkers that is, - in the words of Noddy Holder IT'S CHRISTMAAAAAAAAS!!!!! This year's theme in centre:mk is 'Deck the Hall' and I am sure it will be an absolute spectacle (as it is every year!) Kids can visit Santa’s Grotto joining Chef Ginger-Snaps as he prepares the annual Elf Christmas Feast and take a train ride through a winter wonderland. While adults can visit one of the many pop-up Christmas cabins and pick up some unique gifts.
While at intu you can bring the family together to watch Christmas classic films, from Elf to It's a Wonderful Life. Visit the Alpine Village in Oak Court, grab a beanbag, relax and enjoy 'Movie Magic at Christmas' - it's free Fashion expert Cindy Hudson is on hand to offer her top picks for a sparkly Christmas outfit this month - great news if you haven't yet found the perfect dress for party season.
Once Christmas is over (I'm not really wishing time away, promise), you will need to do something with your real Christmas tree. Well, instead of leaving it in the rubbish collection or dragging it to the tip yourself, call Willen Hospice who, for a small donation, will collect and recycle it for you. You will need to book the service, so hurry! Read more about the scheme on page 12. Milton Keynes Museum visits Bradwell Windmill this month; standing adjacent to the Grand Union Canal for it was used to supply flour to the London market. Now under the watchful eye of Milton Keynes Museum, the windmill has been recently restored. Read more inside.
