#LoveMK day 2016
The fourth #LoveMK day will be held on Thursday, April 28, it has been announced today.
Organisers Destination MK, the official tourism organisation for the city, want even more people to get involved.
The aim of the day is not only to promote Milton Keynes as a leisure and business destination but also to harness the pride that many people have in their city.
With the recent Rugby World Cup games held here, the upcoming IF: Milton Keynes International Festival in July and the 50th Birthday celebrations in 2017 – that pride is on show more than ever.
Everyone can get involved, you can download the #LoveMK poster, or just get creative with the hashtag and photograph yourselves spreading the love.
The visitor economy is worth over £200 million to the area and by encouraging the MK community to get involved in promoting their own city, it could increase the wider benefits even further.
Destination MK and partners throughout the city will be asking the MK Twitter community to use the hashtag #LoveMK on all their tweets on April 28 to try and get it trending in the UK, as it has done for the past three years.
And why not get creative – how can you show your love for MK?
Maybe create a banner, get your school involved, paint your face, knit a jumper, bake a cake – anything you can use #LoveMK on!
Carys Underwood, Marketing Manager at DMK, said “So many people got involved in last year’s #LoveMK Day but we want to make it even bigger this year.
“We’re hoping that once again the community will get behind us and get #LoveMK trending, not only to promote MK as a destination but to show how much pride they have in the place that they live and work in.”
On the day you can also follow @DestinationMK for your chance to win prizes as they run ’12 competitions in 12 hours’ where you could win by just using the hashtag.
You can download the #LoveMK Day poster from their website and get your photo taken to show your support, tweet it to @DestinationMK and they’ll RT and add it to theirFacebook gallery.
