Milton Keynes has MK Money
Milton Keynes has decided that the best way to keep money in the community is to print local currency - MK Money. It will build community spirit and strengthen the idea that we're all working to help support each other as a local community.
Why use MK Money? One of the major reasons is to encourage people to buy local produce from local shops and traders. It keeps all the money inside the community and that it is an economic plus for local people.
Local businesses like it because it as it is a sign of their commitment to the local economy and participating businesses just have a little sign next to the till saying that they support MK money.
The designs used on the MK Money notes are taken from recognised, high profile businesses and organisations that reflect the established and future business economy - Xscape Milton Keynes (£100), Marshall Amplification (£50), Willen Hospice (£30), MK Dons (£10), The Parks Trust (£5) and of course, the famous Concrete Cows (£1).
The MK Money notes have been designed by a local graphic designer and represent a smart addition to a growing range of specialist Milton Keynes souvenirs that are available from www.mkcows.com
Local currency is not a new idea; schemes are running in other parts of Britain as well as in Germany, Hungry and America.
In order to promote the design of these MK Money notes, a special edition set of the 6 notes as postcards have been produced and are available from Waterstones, in Midsummer Place, CMK and from the usual MK Cows outlets.
