Helping West Bletchley Council to say Happy Birthday to MK

Bletchley has already seen a series of events happening to celebrate Milton Keynes’ momentous 50th year.
From West Bletchley Carnival and Bletchley Park offering 1950s themed live music and dancing, MK Play Association and MK Community Foundation bringing free MK50 pop-up family play sessions across our parks to Bletchley Leisure Centre and their volunteers working with Willen Hospice to deliver a free Family Splash Day!

But when the bunting has come down and the dust starts to settle, West Bletchley Council wondered what small mark they could leave to acknowledge Milton Keynes’ big 5-0? Councillor Paul Harvey, Chair of the Planning & Environment Committee, said: “Resident feedback has always been really positive following our planting activities with local Primary Schools and community groups. As early preparation started for Carnival and other events and activities across the Parish, the MK50 theme was clearly a strong one. Carving this into our landscape is our way of honouring that and letting residents enjoy and interact with it.”

When Adam Close at Drone MK heard about the artistic efforts from both West Bletchley Council and our landscaping team here at at RTM Landscapes, he offered their aerial photography services to capture the moment and document it for the sake of posterity. With a massive thanks to Adam, we can now share the pictures and our efforts with the rest of Milton Keynes. West Bletchley’s big 50 can be found in the long meadow grass at The Leys Park, MK3 6EN until the end of October 2017
