The 9th annual #LoveMK Day will take place later this month on April 29.

Organised by Milton Keynes official tourism group, Destination Milton Keynes (DMK), event planners are asking to use social media to highlight what they are most looking forward to doing in Milton Keynes as restrictions ease.

Carys Underwood, marketing manager at DMK, said “As we start to emerge from lockdown and more and more of our fantastic leisure and hospitality organisations start to reopen, we

want to find out what people have missed most and what they are looking forward to doing across the city in 2021.”

DMK is encouraging the Milton Keynes Twitter community to get creative in expressing their love of the city. Baking, sewing, flower arrangements and any other outside-the-box ideas are welcomed.

A DMK spokesperson asked some of Milton Keynes most prominent figures what they're looking forward to doing as the country reopens.

Former Olympic star and MK resident Gail Emms said, “I literally cannot wait to have a night out, to enjoy a relaxed meal with friends and then to hit the bars in The Hub for a few

cocktails – MK has an emerging nightlife life scene which can only get better. Bring it on!”

Mayor of Milton Keynes, Councillr Andrew Geary commented, “What a year it’s been, but what a place MK has been. We’ve pulled together like never before, forged communities and

supported each other. Now it’s time to look forward, and I can’t wait to be able to shake people warmly by the hand, to hug and embrace where appropriate. And to get back to watching the MK Dons in person and not on the iPad! You’ve gotta #LoveMK.”

Chairman of MK Dons FC, Pete Winkelman said, “During this extraordinary time in our lives, football has not been the same without its supporters and we, at Milton Keynes Dons,

cannot wait to welcome our fans back to Stadium MK once Government guidance allows.”
