Midlands | Alan's update

I hope you have all had a great July. The first part of the kids’ school summer holidays have gone well and for those heading off on holiday, have fun!

It has been a little quiet in the region with me taking two weeks leave but back now and looking to set some events up that might help entertain the kids in the later stages of those very same school holidays.

During July we had the last of our five pamper days with the Midlands Massage and Beauty School which proved to be very popular - just look at the smile on Mrs Cottam’s face as the medicinal powers of a pedicure kick in!

We also had two car-based events with Motor Madness at Bruntingthorpe, and Dub Fusion taking place for the speed and car freaks amongst you. The former is set to be an annual event and we will be back there next year all being well. Early notice also for this year’s annual track day at Donnington with our friends at Mission Motorsport. Mark Friday 8 December in your diaries if you feel the need for more speed!

We have also had more brilliant offers from The Birmingham Hippodrome, and thanks again to all of you who have purchased your tickets for this year’s Black Tie Ball on Saturday 28 October. There are still a handful left so be quick if you want to attend. First come, first served.

And so to August. As mentioned earlier I will be looking to run events with the kids in mind as it is the school holidays. Parents – I feel your pain. I will try and ensure I have some offers out to you during the first week of August, so keep an eye out and hope to see loads of you out and about in the next few weeks!
