I brought my company here in the mid seventies. We were in London and expanding but couldn’t afford it so I thought Milton Keynes would be a very exciting place to grow a company and a family.
It’s been wonderful! I remember taking a group of people to what is now the MK shopping centre when it was just fields and saying to them ‘we’ll have something like Oxford Street under glass here’. It’s not turned out quite like that but it’s very successful.

I’m now involved with a group of people who are 55 and older who want to live in a communal setting when they get older and in buildings that are designed in such a way that there can be communal activity.
“I thought Milton Keynes would be a very exciting place to grow a company and a family”
I think MK is a good place for some of this kind of building and community.
