Coronavirus: changes to council services - Milton Keynes Council
## Coronavirus: changes to council services ##

Some of our services are changing to help protect MK’s most vulnerable people from coronavirus. 

Some council facilities are temporarily closed, including our Civic offices.  We’re asking you to call or email us instead of dropping in.  We’re following official guidance and will reopen as soon as it’s right to do so.  

Essential services such as registering deaths, waste collection, home care, sheltered housing and safeguarding are still running.

Visit our meetings and papers pages for information on council meetings (most of which have been temporarily suspended).

# Leah Croucher's parents renew appeal a year after she vanished #

Teenager went missing while walking to work in Milton Keynes in February 2019

The parents of missing Leah Croucher, who disappeared a year ago, have spoken of how their family has been destroyed as they pleaded with anyone who might have information to “do the decent thing” and come forward.

Police say they are unable to rule out that Croucher came to harm after she “effectively vanished into thin air” in Milton Keynes while on her way to work.

Then aged 19, she was last spotted at about 8.15am on Buzzacott Lane, in the Furzton area, on 15 February 2019.

Claire and John Croucher questioned why their daughter would “just disappear” and said they feared she had been abducted, in an anniversary appeal.

“Every day I feel like I’ve given up hope, and it’s a big struggle to get that hope back,” Claire Croucher said. “It’s more and more difficult because, if someone took Leah for example, she’s suffering for 365 days and no one wants that for their child.”

She spoke of how her family’s heartbreak was compounded after the death of Leah’s brother, who she said found the disappearance of his sister “very difficult”.

Coronavirus: Milton Keynes Information - Kents Hill Park
# Coronavirus: Milton Keynes Information #


Around 150 British Citizens are being flown from Wuhan City in China, the epicentre of the current outbreak of Novel Coronavirus, back to the United Kingdom on Sunday 9 February.

Everyone being repatriated will be assessed before boarding the plane in China, monitored during the flight and will continue to be monitored after landing in the UK.

A facility at Kents Hill Park in Milton Keynes is being used to house these returning citizens and they will remain at the site in isolation for 14 days.  During this time their health will be regularly assessed.

This is the second facility of this type that has been set up in the UK following the successful repatriation to Arrowe Park Hospital in the Wirral last month.

The isolation of the guests in Milton Keynes is being undertaken as a highly precautionary measure as they have been at the epicentre of the outbreak and at increased risk of exposure to the virus.

The presence of this group in Milton Keynes does not present any risk to local people. No one showing symptoms of the novel coronavirus infection (2019-nCoV) would have been allowed to board the plane when it was in China.

During their time in Milton Keynes, the group will be regularly assessed by highly experienced healthcare professionals and will be provided with support to meet any social and emotional needs during their stay. All staff working at the facility will be wearing appropriate protective equipment at all times. Anyone showing symptoms of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) will be assessed and if appropriate undergo testing for the virus.

The local site has been chosen because it offers appropriate accommodation and other facilities for those coming back from Wuhan while they stay in Milton Keynes. It also allows their health to be regularly monitored and has the necessary medical facilities close at hand should they be required.

The process of repatriation has been led by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, with the advice of the Chief Medical Officer, and the support of the Department of Health and Social Care, the NHS and Public Health England.

The UK is well prepared for these types of incidents and there is rapid and effective testing undertaken by PHE available for this virus. The NHS has expert teams of highly-trained staff and specialist hospital units around the country ready to receive and care for any patients with any highly infectious disease. The NHS adheres to the highest safety standards for the protection of its staff, patients and the public.

Based on current evidence, Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) presents with flu-like symptoms including a fever, a cough, or difficulty breathing. The current evidence is that most cases appear to be mild.

There is more information and advice on Novel Coronavirus on the Government’s website at

The Multi-agency response team will be regularly updating this briefing for partners.


## Frequently asked questions ##

Are staff entering the facility where the groups are being kept required to wear full PPE?
Staff entering the facility are taking appropriate infection prevention and control precautions including wearing appropriate PPE.

Image caption
Leah Croucher's lack of contact with friends or family was "unbelievable", her mother said
A teenager is still missing ten days into a search which has seen police visit more than 4,000 homes.

Leah Croucher, 19, was last seen by her parents on 14 February at their home in Emerson Valley, Milton Keynes.

CCTV showed her walking down Buzzacott Lane in Furzton, in the direction of her work, at 08:15 GMT on 15 February.

Thames Valley Police has more than 50 officers and staff involved in the search, which has covered multiple areas of Milton Keynes.

The force has asked anyone who was on or near Buzzacott Lane the day Leah went missing to get in touch, particularly if they spoke to her then, or in the past.

CAN conference 2019: The Evolving Landscape of Staff-Student Partnership, 29–30 May 2019 | Change Agents' Network
Change Agents' Network

A network of staff and students working in partnership to support curriculum enhancement and innovation

CAN conference 2019: The Evolving Landscape of Staff-Student Partnership, 29–30 May 2019

By Sarah Knight November 30, 2018

The Open University is proud to be hosting the Change agents’ network Conference 2019 in partnership with Jisc and we would like to announce the call for contributions from colleges and universities who are working in partnership with their students.

In 2019 the CAN Conference will focus on the evolving landscape of staff-student partnerships at universities and colleges. With CAN in its 8th year, and host institution The Open University in its 50th year, our five key themes offer participants the opportunity to critically reflect on our collective progress to date, and to begin to envision the future of staff-student partnership in a rapidly changing education sector.

Conference themes

1. Informed Innovation: Working with Students

How does innovation in education embrace and develop consistent, long-term engagement with students as partners? Innovation in education covers a broad field, from learning and teaching technologies and practices, to ways of working. An evidence-based approach to innovation promotes not only the successful implementation of ideas, but also welcomes discussion of pilots, experiments, and prototypes. Informed innovation relies on learning from experience, and this theme provides a ‘failure amnesty’ to share ultimately unsuccessful efforts. This theme invites submissions that critically reflect on the experience of innovating in education, and how this has evolved through partnership between staff and students.

2. Partnerships in Curriculum Innovation/Design

How do ongoing partnerships with students in curriculum innovation and curriculum design contribute to the development of modern and relevant learning and teaching content, materials, and practices? Submissions on this theme are welcome to explore this broad and varied area, which encompasses experiences in co-production, co-creation, consultation, engagement, student success, and the affordances of digital technologies across these.

3. Engaging Students in Change

IOP Public Lecture "Recreating the Big Bang with the World's largest machine - the LHC at CERN"
IOP Public Lecture "Recreating the Big Bang with the World's largest machine - the LHC at CERN"

Type: Lecture

Date: 11 December 2018

Time: 19:30-20:30

Location: Berrill Lecture Theatre

Speaker is Prof. David Evans, University of Birmingham

The 27km Large Hadron Collider (LHC), situated 100 metres under the Swiss-French border at CERN near Geneva, is the World's most powerful particle accelerator. In the LHC, protons (hydrogen nuclei) are smashed together at 0.999999991 times the speed of light recreating, for a tiny instant, the violent particle collisions which would have existed less than a billionth of a second after the Big Bang. For about four weeks a year, lead nuclei are accelerated and collided in the LHC producing the highest temperatures and densities ever made in an experiment and recreating the exotic primordial soup which existed at the birth of our Universe. Professor David Evans, from the University of Birmingham, will explain some of the physics behind the LHC and why it was built.

ALL WELCOME! Light refreshments after the talk when you can meet the speaker.

‘Please do not let the government deport my teenage daughter away from Milton Keynes’ - Milton Keynes Citizen
Jeanette with daughters Taniella and Nesta


Published: 13:29 Wednesday 05 September 2018 Share this article

A Milton Keynes teenager who dreams of being a psychologist could be forced out of Britain as part of a Windrush-type scandal.

Eighteen year-old Taniella is the eldest daughter of Jeanette Valentin, a British Citizen who has lived in MK for nine years.

Jeanette’s mum, Taniella’s grandmother, was one of hundreds of residents evicted from Diego Garcia by the British government in 1971.

Britain had leased the small Indian Ocean island to the United States, who built a multi billion dollar military base there.

Taniella’s gran was deported to the Seychelles, where Jeanette lived and raised her two elder children until she moved to the UK 15 years ago.

Now the government refuses to recognise those children, the third generation Diego Garcians, as British Citizens.

august 2017 by ndf -- Willen Trail Leaflet v2.pdf
Trail Leaflet v2 18/08/2010 10:04 Page 2.

Willen Heritage Walk

The project itself

Willen Hospice contacted the Learning Co-ordinator for MKHA with the idea of putting
together a Heritage trail for the carers to use. Carers Day was the 14th June 2010 and
the Hospice wanted a walk to be set up so that the carers could go out and find out
about the area around Willen. It was then decided that a leaflet could be put together
with all the information on so that people could go from the Hospice for a 30-45 minute
walk, in their own time at any time.

The local school (Willen Primary School) was contacted and 11 children aged 10 and 11
volunteered to take part in the project. The children first had to decide where they
wanted the walk to go and which landmarks they wanted to talk about. This was quite
tricky because they had to take into account the fact that some people may be in

Eventually 8 places of interest were decided on including the Hospice and Willen Village
itself. The children then researched their chosen landmark in pairs and decided what to
say and who was going to say it.

On a very blustery June day, the children led a small group on the walk and gave out
their information. The adults who listened were very impressed and felt that they had
learnt things that they didn’t know about the area.

'Unsung' codebreaking hero celebrated - BBC News
Bletchley Park's Bill Tutte recognised 100 years after birth

A mathematician who helped crack Nazi code at Bletchley Park during World War Two is being recognised 100 years on from his birth.
Bill Tutte's success in helping breaking the code of the German High Command was on a par with that of Alan Turing's, yet he received no recognition from the government during his lifetime.
Born in Newmarket, Suffolk, on 14 May 1917, Bill Tutte demonstrated a phenomenal grasp of mathematics from an early age.
Bletchley Park has opened a new exhibition about the mathematician. There will also be a series of lectures exploring his life and works.

Media captionThe front of Airlander 10 hit the ground on its return to Cardington Airfield in August
The world's longest aircraft - the £25m Airlander 10 - has been given a pair of "giant inflatable landing feet" as part of improvements following a crash.
The 302ft (92m) long aircraft, which is part plane and part airship, nosedived after a test flight at Cardington Airfield in Bedfordshire on 24 August.
No-one was injured in the accident, but the cockpit was effectively destroyed.
The auxiliary landing system has "airbags" which are stowed during flight, Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV) said.

5 Top Birding Spots in Milton Keynes - Views From an Urban Lake

5 Top Birding Spots in Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes may not seem the best urban birding location in the UK, but we have our fair share of interesting places for the birds (sadly many have declined over the years through neglect or pressure from the growing town). So here are my 5 top birding spots in Milton Keynes, a few details about local wildlife hotspots to be found in (and around) Milton Keynes (click on the link/name to see location on Google maps).

As you will see they are mainly lakes, Milton Keynes has a lot of lakes of various sizes, so I've added Little Linford wood in to break up the lake theme, and each site title can be clicked on to take you to a Google map of  the area (I hope) and so onto my 5 Top Birding Spots of Milton Keynes.



Currently Manor Farm (where the majority of posts on this blog are located) is the premier location in Milton Keynes for waders, and passage birds (it is currently, 2016, no.1 in my 5 Top Birding Spots in Milton Keynes). Created from a recent gravel workings the area is a complex of small interconnected lakes and pools fed by the river Ouse, but you can read all about it in more detail in my Introducing the Patch pages the nature reserve is covered under Main Pits and Stilt Pits.

Floodplain Forest - Parks Trust
The Parks Trust has transformed 48 hectares of the Great Ouse Valley at Manor Farm near Old Wolverton, Milton Keynes into the Floodplain Forest Nature Reserve. 

The project involved the removal of sand and gravel deposits from beneath fields of agriculturally-improved pasture, restoring the land into a mosaic of new water channels, pools, marshy areas and islands within the river floodplain which resemble a pre-historic natural landscape.

The Parks Trust undertook the project with Hanson UK, who helped design the restoration scheme and undertook the quarrying operations.

The project was many years in the planning and is part of the Parks Trust’s long term vision to increase biodiversity in Milton Keynes and make wildlife-rich landscapes accessible to people. Work by Hanson to extract the gravel from the site began in 2007 and completed their work in 2015.

Milton Keynes concrete cows return to museum - BBC News
25 April 2016

The cows, created by the Canadian artist Liz Leyh in 1978, have become closely associated with the identity of Milton Keynes
Milton Keynes's famous concrete cows have moved back to their original home at the town's museum.
The cows were created by the Canadian artist Liz Leyh in 1978 with the help of local schoolchildren.
They were on display at a shopping centre for several years but have now returned to Milton Keynes Museum.
The cows were a leaving present from the Milton Keynes Development Corporation, which oversaw the building of the new town from the mid 1960s.
Over the years they have been subjected to several vandal attacks, stolen and beheaded.
They have been painted pink, had pyjamas painted on them, turned into skeletons and, during the mad cow disease crisis, had the letters "BSE" written on them.

Milton Keynes: The middle-aged new town - BBC News

INTERACTIVE The sign to Milton Keynes 2017 1969
Most towns grow and evolve over hundreds if not thousands of years. Not so Milton Keynes, which is 50 years old. Perhaps the best known of the 20th Century "new towns", it has its detractors but is also much loved by its residents.
The town was born with an Act of Parliament in 1967 which approved the building of a new community of 250,000 people covering 8,850 hectares (21,869 acres) of Buckinghamshire farmland and villages.
Built to ease the housing shortages in overcrowded London, its founding principles were for an "attractive" town that enshrined "opportunity and freedom of choice".

Joyce Wheeler was one of a select group of scientists who used Edsac in their research
Everyone remembers the first computer they ever used. And Joyce Wheeler is no exception. But in her case the situation was a bit different. The first computer she used was one of the first computers anyone used.
The machine was Edsac - the Electronic Delay Storage Automatic Calculator - that ran for the first time in 1949 and was built to serve scientists at the University of Cambridge.
Joyce Wheeler was one of those scientists who, at the time, was working on her PhD under the supervision of renowned astronomer Fred Hoyle.
"My work was about the reactions inside stars," she said. "I was particularly interested in how long main sequence stars stay on their main sequence.
"I wanted to know how long a star took to fade out," she explained.
The inner workings of the nuclear furnace that keep stars shining is an understandably knotty problem to solve. And, she said, the maths describing that energetic process were formidable.
"For stars, there's a rather nasty set of differential equations that describe their behaviour and composition," she added.

Edsac helped Dr Wheeler investigate what processes keep stars burning
Completing those calculations manually was futile.
"It was not possible to be really accurate doing it by hand," she said. "The errors just build up too much."
Enter Edsac - a machine created by Prof Maurice Wilkes to do exactly the kind of calculations Ms Wheeler (nee Blackler) needed done to complete her advanced degree.
Thinking time
First though, she had to learn to write the programs that would carry out the calculations.
Dr Wheeler started her PhD work at Cambridge in 1954 knowing about Edsac thanks to an earlier visit during which the machine had been shown off to her and others.
Keen to get on with her research she sat down with the slim booklet that described how to program it and, by working through the exercises in that pioneering programming manual, learned to code.

Milton Keynes at 50: Success town has 'nothing to be ashamed of' - BBC News

Five decades on from plans being approved for a new town, Milton Keynes has become home to more than 10,000 businesses and is used as a model for cities across the world
In January 1967 plans for a new town were given the go-ahead and soon a quiet Buckinghamshire village became the vast development of Milton Keynes. Fifty years on, what do people living in one of the UK's best-known "new towns" think of it?
When then housing minister Anthony Greenwood granted permission to transform 8,850 hectares of villages and farmland into a town of 250,000 people, little did he know the part concrete cows would play in its story.
The vision for Milton Keynes was grand in scale - part of the third and final phase of the government's plans to relocate populations following World War Two.
Almost inevitably, a small art project created some 10 years later became the focal point for a sceptical national media.
But five decades on, Milton Keynes has become home to more than 10,000 businesses and is used as a model for new towns across the world.

Celebrations to mark the 50th birthday and demonstrate the town's plans for the future will kick off on 10 January
Though sometimes mocked for those cows and its proliferation of roundabouts, Milton Keynes has "nothing to be ashamed of", according to its deputy mayor David Hopkins.
Mr Hopkins was one of the town's 40,000 original residents when he relocated from rural Buckinghamshire with his parents, who he admits were initially "horrified" at the concept of the new town.
