If you aren’t trying to buy that last minute Valentine’s Day gift (heaven knows I will be), then there is plenty of stuff going on across the line this weekend to keep you and the family busy.

We should start with the fact that Saturday is the first day of London Midland’s Great Escape offer. In case you didn’t catch our last post, you can get £15 all day travel on the London Midland network. There are some discounts for railcard holders and children too. It is (*reads promo notes from London Midland*) a really great offer and you will have lots of fun with the family. Yay!

Onto other stuff now. Starting off for the artists among you Artworks MK will be running a “Willow basket in a day” session from 10am to 4pm. During the day you will learn the traditional skills necessary to make a small round willow basket for holding fruit, bread, eggs or knitting projects. You need to pre-book and there is a charge of £55 for the session. The location is just off our line near Wolverton station.

If you are thinking about taking your loved one out for a nice, romantic, pre-valentine day out together, the first thing you think of is…adventure golf! Pirate Island Adventure Golf will be running a special couples night this Saturday between 6pm and 10pm. Two golfers can get in for just £9.99, no need to pre-book. The nearest station to Pirate Island is Davey Jones’ Locker Parkway. Sorry, Milton Keynes Central.

The sporting action this weekend is provided on the Rugby field. No, not in the 6 Nations, but at Goldington Road, where Bedford Blues take on Jersey in the RFU Championship. Kick off is at 3pm, and all the usual ticket prices apply. The nearest station is Bedford.

That’s it. All done for another week. I’m going to make a cup of tea, so ta-ta for now!
