Milton Keynes MPs relaunch #BounceBackMK campaign as pubs and retail re-open

Ben Everitt and Iain Stewart have relaunched the #BounceBackMK campaign aimed at helping local businesses recover from lockdown.

The local MPs were out and about across Milton Keynes last week meeting with businesses from cafes and pubs to local non-essential retail shops and want to help promote them and get customers back.

Ben Everitt, the MK North MP, visited The Watts Arms in Hanslope and The Cherry Tree in Olney to understand how the pandemic has impacted them and to listen to their views on Government support.

Iain Stewart, the MP for MK South, was out across his constituency. Iain was in Stony Stratford meeting with the business owners of Out Of Office Coffee, Stony Sweet Shop, MacIntyre Coffee Shop and French Affaire.

Also, Iain visited Playful Pottery and the MK Community Shop in Shenley Church End. The overall mood was of optimism for the return of business and of excitement seeing customers again.

Ben Everitt said: “The last 12 months have been so tough for businesses and it’s vital we all get out there and support them bounce back in a safe way. I want to get out and meet more of our local businesses over the next few months so please do get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.

“We can keep unlocking in a cautious but irreversible way to help Milton Keynes bounce back and bounce back better.”

Iain Stewart added: "It was great to be in my constituency last Friday, seeing local shops and businesses busy welcoming back their customers.

"Over the next few months, I will be visiting a variety of different businesses to see how they have been getting on with the restrictions being eased.

"I am pleased to relaunch #BounceBackMK and do my part by shopping locally, supporting our businesses."
