#MYMK50 Celebrating 50 Years of MK!

Back to 1980 and a new family move into Milton Keynes.  One of the many images I'll be sharing with you over the next 50 days to launch my #MyMK50 competition.

Free Childcare Doubles to 30 Hours

Government are offering eligible families a saving of up to £5,000 a year when the new 30 hours free childcare scheme opens in September.

Parents with a child under five years old can now apply for a 30 hours free childcare place for September 2017.

£3M Funding Pot - Apply Now!

I'm urging MK charities and community groups to apply for their share of a massive £3 million funding pot.

People’s Postcode Lottery’s Dream Fund is looking for charities to apply for funding to bring their dream project to life.

MK University - Exciting Prospect

I was given a briefing last week by Cranfield University who have been working in partnership with Milton Keynes Council to develop a vision of what MK’s first university could look like.

Public Sector Pay

Public Sector pay is a matter for the budget, not the Queen's Speech.

Labour's attempt to wreck the Queen's speech was a blatant piece of political opportunism to try and bring down the Government and force another election, not a genuine attempt to address public sector pay.

Veterans' Gateway

The recently launched Veterans' Gateway is a a one stop website for veterans and their families offering advice and support with healthcare & housing to employment, finances, relationships & more.
