Fred was born in Dublin, Ireland, and travelled the world with the Navy from the age of sixteen until he eventually came to Milton Keynes in 1976. Fred relays his first memories of Milton Keynes: looking for employment, walking all over Milton Keynes in the hot 1976 summer until he found a job.
This HLF-funded project celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Milton Keynes. We interviewed more than 50 people who have made the town their home, who shared their memories, experiences, and hopes for the future. For more information about the project, visit mkpeoplesstories.co.uk
