Milton Keynes – Don’t You Just Love It 3rd May #LoveMK Day

Milton Keynes – Don’t You Just Love It 3rd May  #LoveMK Day

Milton Keynes is hosting a special day 3rd May is the 6th annual #LoveMK Day.
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.
Rohan Milton Keynes MK14 5QD.

We moved the Rohan HQ to Milton Keynes in 1984, the Rohan Milton Keynes Shop opened in 1985 in Giffard Park shortly after the moved from North Yorkshire. It is still there today.
Love MK
The Rohan move to MK was covered in TQQ Autumn 1985 and the photos for TQQ Winter 1986 were taken in MK.
Much has happened over the last 30+ years but the move was a good one.
We enjoy Milton Keynes. It has its very own unique style. Come and spend some time with us in our city of dreams next time you are passing.
