Proms in the park

Great night in Campbell park, however the weather was very grim indeed. Only cost us £10 a ticket from work so we took a picnic and a couple of bottles of wine - result a good evening .

Pack your picnic, fill up on fizz and join in the party as Proms in the Park returns to Campbell Park on Friday 14th August 2015. The Parks Trust and Milton Keynes City Orchestra have once again joined forces to present an uplifting and inspiring celebration of stirring classical favourites. The open-air concert will be performed by Milton Keynes City Orchestra and followed by a spectacular firework display. Last year's uplifting numbers included Dambusters and patriotic numbers like Rule Britannia.

Bearbrook 10K


Bearbrook 10K road race
On a lovely Sunday morning Jade & Myself raced the bearbrook 10k through Weston Turnville , Wendover, and Holton. Temperature was very hot and a long hill all the way to Holton camp made for hard work but then it was down hill all the way to the finishing line, jade had been trying to get the magic hour and she finally done it in 59:57 so well done Jade.
