Can you name Milton Keynes Council's new gritter?

    MK Council and Ringway are looking for names for their 2 new gritting lorries.

    Milton Keynes Council have got two new gritting lorries ahead of the Christmas period and they need naming! This is your chance to be immortalized in Milton Keynes-based gritting history. Text your suggestion to 81400, starting your message with MKFM Gritter and then your suggestion.


    A panel will then compile a shortlist of 10 of the best names which will be put to a public vote.

    The two winners will receive a bespoke number plate of the winning gritter name! MK Council and Ringway will also chuck in a few more goodies.
