Leader of Milton Keynes City Council pays tribute to the Queen

    The Leader of Milton Keynes City Council has paid tribute to Her Majesty The Queen.

    Councillor Peter Marland, Leader of Milton Keynes City Council told MKFM: "The death of The Queen is very sad. For most of us, it is all we have ever known and for 70 years, she served this country steadfastly and with character and humour.

    "I think people will want to pay tribute and therefore, they can go and lay flowers at MK Rose if they want and Milton Keynes City Council will be opening a book of remembrance that people can go and share their thoughts and memories in at this time."

    Milton Keynes City Council has released the following information on official services and events.

    Floral tributes at MK Rose

    The Mayor of Milton Keynes formally lay flowers on behalf of the City at the Milton Keynes Rose in Campbell Park.

    The City Council has requested that flowers are taken out of cellophane wrappers where possible, and that no naked flames or candles are left.
