The one-year project will focus on significant dates in the calendar, including the anniversary of Milton Keynes, one of Britain’s best-known new towns. High profile community events will take place throughout the year.
Managing director Hamish Thompson and co-director James Horne will lead The Houston PR team and report to the Milton Keynes Council communications team.
Hamish Thompson said: “We’re delighted to have been appointed by Milton Keynes to celebrate this key date in the city’s evolution. It is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness of the many achievements of Britain’s most famous new town in civic life, urban design, culture and technology, and set out the Council’s agenda for the future.”
