For now, things are very different. The impact of Covid-19 on our everyday lives has meant we have all had to evaluate and adjust. 
 
The team at Pulse Magazine have been totally inspired by the way neighbours, community groups and local businesses have come together to support each other. Like you, we see lots of posts on various social media sites and groups offering services and recommendations locally, but none of the information appears in one place. 
 
So, to help local people find information quickly and to enable local businesses and community service groups to tell you about the services they offer, we have compiled this lockdown guide for Milton Keynes. 
 
Divided by area (where possible), simply scroll down to find out what is available close to you. 
 
Please bookmark the page and check back regularly as we will keep updating it - likewise please share on social media so there can make use of it. 
 
If you want to be added to the guide (it is totally free), or know of a service that should appear please email mk@pulsemagazine.co.uk or head over to our Facebook page and send us a message. 
 
We are all in this together - stay safe everyone.
