#LoveMK Day to give the city a Spring Clean

Date Posted:28/03/2018

#LoveMK Day 2018For the sixth annual #LoveMK Day, being held this year on Thursday 3 May, the official tourism and information service, Destination Milton Keynes, is teaming up with local McDonald’s franchise, Kaizen Restaurants, to help give the city a spring clean.

Each year, the day not only promotes Milton Keynes as a leisure and business destination but it also harnesses the pride that many people have in their city, and what better way to do this than extend the existing ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign that Team Kaizen already runs regularly.

Destination MK is asking members of the public to vote on their Facebook page for which three areas within Milton Keynes should get a spring clean; then anyone can volunteer to help on the day.

The eight areas shortlisted are:

  • City Centre (Avebury Boulevard/Xscape)
  • MK College/Bletchley Station
  • Westcroft/Howe Park Wood
  • Wolverton
  • Monkston/Kents Hill (underpasses from Kingston Centre)
  • Willen Lake/Gulliver’s Land area
  • Great Linford (canalside)
  • MK College (Chaffron Way)

Ken Tomkins, owner of local McDonald’s franchise Kaizen Restaurants, said “We are really proud of the work we have done to improve the landscape in Milton Keynes through our Love Where You Live litter picking events over the last six years.  

“Now, we are delighted to demonstrate our love for the city through a series of litter picking events on #LoveMK Day with Destination Milton Keynes.  We hope local residents will rally to vote for their local areas and join us to show how much they #LoveMK on Thursday 3 May.”

But don’t worry if you can’t help on the day, you can still support #LoveMK Day by downloading the #LoveMK poster, or just get creative with the hashtag and photograph yourselves spreading the love.

On the day you can also follow @DestinationMK on Twitter for your chance to win prizes as they run ’12 competitions in 12 hours’ where you could win by just using the hashtag.
