On 23rd January 1967 a decision was made to create a brand new city around a little village called Milton Keynes. To celebrate the founders of this new commercial center in Buckinghamshire, The Milton Keynes Rose Foundation created The Founders Pillar, which acknowledges the diverse range of people who contributed to the build, social, commercial & cultural development of our city.
One of the key figures involved in the creation of Milton Keynes is someone very dear to us. Morwenna Bucknall was one of the founders of not just the city, but also our very own Camphill MK Community. A teacher, advocate for social justice and a truly inspirational woman, we think of her today.
Why not visit The Milton Keynes Rose public place in Central Milton Keynes this weekend? It’s free and open to everyone for celebration, commemoration and contemplation.
