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. 
Following the court proceeding between the Landlord Milton Keynes Council and Conniburrow Community Association, Great Linford Parish Council has been offered the opportunity to manage the Centre. 
 
There are several things to sort out, but we wish to open the doors and welcome groups back to the centre as soon as possible. 
The football club will hopefully be back playing at Conniburrow provided the rain stops and the pitches dry out - that’s the only thing stopping them finishing their season. 
 
We have been approached by many groups who have shown an interest in running activities and sessions from the Centre. We are working with all of these groups to ensure as many as possible have a base to carry out their bingo, coffee sessions, prayer, cadets, health advice, housing advice . 
Our website and Facebook will be updated with information, but if you are interested in hiring or working with GLPC or other community groups please get in touch at glpc@great-linford.gov.uk 
Great Linford Parish Council is proud to own and look after 4 venues for community use. We are looking for someone who will take pride in looking after these venues and help keep these facilities great for residents and community groups to hire. There is potential to job share. 
 
The role involves opening and closing for one off hirers, making sure regular hirers can work effectively, keeping them clean (contract cleaners do the heavy cleans), reporting any issues that you can't solve yourself. 
 
You will be the custodian and keyholder of our community sites, there is some flexibility in working arrangements/hours. 
 
For more information please email Eirwen Tagg, parish.manager@great-linford.gov.uk or call 01908 606613. 
Just Be Wellbeing Cafe 
Conniburrow 
Wednesdays, 10.30am-2pm 
 
The volunteer roles are open to people who are committed to serving our community and supporting the wellbeing of individuals. A basic outline of the roles are below. We hope that volunteers will be able to move between the kitchen and Cafe floor roles on a rota basis (though if a volunteer prefers to remain in on role that is fine too). 
 
We are looking for people who are able to offer their skills, talents, hobbies and passions in our craft activities. We would welcome a range of different crafts from knitting and henna painting, to jewellery and model making. It would be great to offer our community the opportunity to be creative and experience the sense of peace and achievement that brings. The volunteers for the craft activities would bring their expertise in the area and share that with visitors to Just Be Wellbeing Cafe.

By becoming a parish councillor you become someone your community will look to for help, guidance and support – a community leader with the power to influence decisions for the benefit of the people you serve. Seeing your community change for the better, as a result of decisions you have helped make, is something that can give you a sense of achievement and pride.
