Editorial: There’s no place I’d rather be in summer

The Great British summer has arrived and there really is no better place to enjoy it than right here in Milton Keynes, writes Jon Boyle.

The June issue of Celebrate:MK is our biggest yet at 52 pages and it’s packed full of fun things to do, great places to eat and lots more.


As the weather has improved and MK families have been out enjoying life on bikes, at play parks and eating al fresco across the city, I can’t help but recall a quote from our March issue.

Joe Connolly from Thomas Connolly estate agents described MK as “a giant Center Parcs.”

He is right, you know.

We are lucky to have so much to do in MK in the summer, including the brilliant cycle routes.

Speaking of Center Parcs, I’ve just been sent this photo (below) from MK Council’s Mike Barnett, who is pictured at Elveden Forest pointing at my ugly mug on the wall!

We were snapped by the official Center Parcs photographer while on holiday there last year – it’s the first and last modelling job I’ll ever have!

Have a fantastic fun-filled June!
