Milton Keynes Citizen are holding another Pride in Milton Keynes ceremony to recognise the extraordinary people who commit their time and energy into making a difference in Milton Keynes.

But they need to you tell them about a special person or group of people that make these remarkable differences to the community and its people.

“Let’s celebrate the truly remarkable people who make Milton Keynes a better place.”

There are a number of categories to nominate a person or team into:
