There are plenty of FREE activities this Summer to keep kids of all ages busy. Here is an overview of all the events organised by the Parish Council.  
Eight mural designs have been chosen to revitalise a neglected area of Neath Hill in Milton Keynes. 
The winning designs have been created by students from Milton Keynes College and are to be the focal point in the Memorial Garden in Neath Hill. 
The winning students are Olivia Harrison, Alyssa Garner, Jennifer Anton Vimalathas, Julia Klimaszweska, Prudy Essel, Ryan Chow and Syd Macguinness. They have all recently completed their courses in Art and Design (levels 1-3) and Graphic Design (level 3). 
Community Liaison Office, Tommy Hayes, said “The quality of the artwork submitted was incredibly high, and choosing the winning designs was a difficult decision. We think the winning designs will transform an overgrown, unloved area into a bright and vibrant outdoor space which local residents can enjoy.” 
Kyle Kirkpatrick, Deputy Head of Arts and Media at Milton Keynes College, said “When we were approached by Great Linford Parish Council about the project, we were delighted to get our students involved. It’s been a fantastic opportunity for our learners to get creative and produce designs for a space that’s integral to the communities in Neath Hill. I’m very proud of the students for putting so much effort into the project, and we’re all very excited to see the final murals in place in the Memorial Garden.” 
“This area of Neath Hill is undergoing a transformation, I can’t wait to see the finished murals,” added Martin Burgess, Councillor for Neath Hill. 
The students will start painting their designs at the end of June, and the work is expected to take approximately one week to complete. 
On Saturday 18th June, volunteers, Councillors and Parish Council staff scoured Conniburrow for litter and collected over 170kg. Afterwards, they all enjoyed a delicious lunch at Conniburrow Community Centre which was prepared by Great Linford Community Hub.  
Ed Nixon, Chair of Great Linford Parish Council said "A huge thank you to everyone who attended, and for Great Linford Community Hub for the food. We will see you on the 23rd of July at Neath Hill for our next community litter pick." 
When Vuk Nenadovic spotted a bench on the platform of Great Linford station that had fallen into disrepair, he decided to do something about it!  
Mr Nenadovic noticed that the bench had seen better days and offered to repair it. Vuk collected the bench, repaired the wood, and then returned it to its original position so it could be used for many years to come. 
Vuk was helped by his son, Greg, and grandson, Zak, who can be seen here testing their work!
