Get Involved

The community engagement programme aims to embed sustainable transport into the mindset of local people, by reaching out to diverse communities. Community Engagement and Champion Coordinator Nicky Kenny has been appointed to promote the project and its aims to communities in MK. Nicky will also work to promote the innovative events programme, including the MK Fringe and the International Festival and will support commissioned partners to increase attendance at their events from key community groups across Milton Keynes.

Over the life of this project we will target work in the following areas;

Wolverton, Bradville & Stantonbury
Netherfield
Bletchley & Newton Leys
Central Milton Keynes

Nicky is recruiting Pedalling Culture Volunteer Champions to help spread the word about the project. If you are passionate about culture, art and heritage in MK and about sustainable transport methods and feel you may have a small amount of time to volunteer, then please do contact Nicky.
