Milton Keynes Museum volunteers were one of just four groups to make it through to the prestigious finals of the Pride of Milton Keynes.

Representing everyone involved in education at the museum,  Jill Harper and Hilary Hastings received a highly commended certificate from events host, Bobby Davro.

According to the judges: “To these passionate and dedicated volunteers, the city owes one of the area’s most popular and loved tourist attractions, making history really live for schools, bringing closer different generations of families who come together, and attracting visitors into MK. It owes the preservation of fascinating objects and stories which would otherwise have been lost. Volunteers, many of them elderly, are so helpful and keen to share their knowledge, which brings it all to life.”
