Swallows have swooped in to announce summer and the explosion of blossoms in our city and countryside bring so much pleasure to these early warm summer days.
Exam season too will be in full swing soon and summer and revision days out are intermingled with home barbecues and picnics on the sparkling lakes festooned with bright coloured sails. The redways bustle with walkers and cyclists enjoying the abundance of our green parks. So many choices – what to do ? Listen to the local and international musicians in the gardens and the parks or your choice of movies? Swimming or squash too energetic, perhaps badminton?
Prefer wheels with their own power and the thrill of acceleration? Well no shortage of options here. Hurray it summer and MK has just got to be the best place to enjoy it.
