In 2012-13 Milton Keynes College had a great opportunity to deliver a grass roots outreach and enterprise project funded by NIACE (National Institute of Continuing Education) Transforming Comunities - People in Action - Project in a Box. The work has included the setting up and running of a community cafe, and the running of the theatre company, SMILE. We are delighted with the hard work and commitment shown to these projects and look forward to seeing their continued success.
