RESIDENTS are being urged to try and learn a new skill for the New Year and the council is helping them stick to it.

Whether people’s resolutions involve getting out more, getting fit, saving money or helping others Milton Keynes Council’s ACE new service can help them stick to it.

Starting from January 10 next year, the Adult Continuing Education scheme’s – ACE – spring term will offer a mix of ten-week, five-week and one day courses in a range of subjects, including allotment gardening, Bollywood dance, Chinese cookery, counselling skills and Excel.

Courses will take place at convenient community venues across the city, including the brand new Rivers ACE centre off Humber Way in Bletchley, which is on the site of the former Rivers Infant School.

ACE will be open for business there from 9am on Monday, January 10 and people are already being urged to come in on the day and find out what all the fuss is about.

Councillor Jenni Ferrans, cabinet member responsible for ACE, said: “ACE truly offers something for everyone and continues to be as popular as ever with residents in Milton Keynes. The courses are varied and offer everything from career to lifestyle options that can add to the quality of life for all our residents.”
