Diane moved to Milton Keynes in 1975 when her husband took a job with the MK Development Corporation. She talks about her early memories, recalling that there was no hospital or city centre, and that it was so muddy that she sent her children to school in wellington boots. One of her earliest memories is visiting Milton Keynes Museum, where she became a volunteer making corn dollies. She still volunteers, and now the runs the onsite café.
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
