MyMiltonKeynes launches Summer in my City Campaign

Looking for free activities to keep the kids occupied this summer? MyMiltonKeynes might have the answer with the launch of its new ‘Summer in my City’ campaign which will run across the city centre and encourage the exploration of new sites – there’s also an opportunity to win some fantastic prizes too!

‘Summer in my City’ will run from Thursday, August 3 to Sunday, September 3 and to participate, simply download and print an A5-sized map, or collect one from several key locations across Central Milton Keynes. This exclusive map will guide participants to eight different locations, with clues at each point, and feature 16 questions to unlock fun facts about the city.

Designed to help entertain the children, ‘Summer in my City’ can also be taken on as a corporate fun day, something to do with friends or even with wider family members. It can be completed in one day or spread across the whole of August, there are no strict rules, except to have fun!

While completely free to participate in, the map will also feature a QR code to invite donations to Milton Keynes Hospital Charity.

This fantastic summer activity is a partnership between MyMiltonKeynes and several venues and businesses across CMK, including Xscape, Midsummer Place, centre:mk, MK Theatre, The Hub, 12th Street and Milton Keynes Council, and has been created in partnership with local businesses Cute Maps and Wikiplaces for Kids with support from local radio station MKFM.

Melanie Beck MBE, Chief Executive at MyMiltonKeynes said: “We want as many people as possible to visit Central Milton Keynes and discover and explore some of the fantastic areas we are so lucky to have on our doorstep. The ‘Summer in my City’ campaign continues to reinforce the message that Milton Keynes is a great place to work and play and we can’t wait to enjoy a summer filled with excitement and fun. Good luck to everyone entering, and we hope everyone enjoys exploring our city.”
