Ginger Mum Column: ‘The Hub is the place to be right now’

Lifestyle columnist Amanda, AKA Ginger Mum, shares her latest top picks, including refurbished restaurants Maaya and Brasserie Blanc…

Over the years, as my kids have chalked up another birthday, we’ve navigated our way around most party venues across the region, from Powerleague and 360 Play to Spy Mission and so many more.

Recently, as my youngest hit double digits, there was a fast-paced front runner for his celebrations.

Formula Fast in Bletchley gave him his first experience of go-karting. Exhilarating and exciting, the team guided the kids through expertly and they were soon whizzing round the expansive circuit like pros.

Highly recommended by my boy and his mates who can’t wait to go back.

The place to be is definitely The Hub right now, with a plethora of award-winning bars and restaurants, it’s overflowing with choice.

Maaya Indian Kitchen and Bar has had an opulent facelift and the cuisine is as delectable as ever, thanks
to the skills of their talented head chef, Ray.

Brasserie Blanc has also had a glow-up and has quickly established its place among the ranks of the Insta-worthy must visit venues in MK.

Think plush velvet banquettes, luxury private dining area and their very own blossom tree stealing the
show amidst the decadent new decor.

Top tip – their bottomless Sunday Roast is the stuff legends are made of!

Spring and summer, in my humble opinion, is when David Lloyd Club comes into its own with the outdoor pool serving up tropical oasis vibes in the heart of Milton Keynes.

As well as top tier facilities and cutting-edge classes all year round, the outdoor pool is the jewel in the crown of this unrivalled family friendly space.

Sunny days spent relaxing by the pool as the kids splash the day away truly feels like being abroad.

That’s one of the many reasons why we have been members for the past 15 years and couldn’t imagine
anywhere better around these parts.

I had great feedback from you guys last time I recommended podcasts, and right now, I’m loving ‘Making
Money Online with Lisa Johnson’. It’s so motivational and she leaves no subject unspoken in her episodes as she imparts her expertise and experience. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
