MK Gateway


Commencing work with the team, then operating as First Base, in January 2021, we began supporting the PR and social media activity at pre-planning stage for the MK Gateway development at Saxon Court, on an initial nine month contract. Impressing the team with our positive and proactive approach during that period, we picked up additional projects too, including a video to promote the engagement carried out with the local community and a photography competition in support of the IF: Milton Keynes International Festival.

When it came to the end of the initial contract, the MK Gateway project team valued our support so much they continued with our PR and social media management services, in order to keep up the momentum of positive PR and social media engagement that had already been achieved. We are now looking forward to delivering the comms strategy for the next phase of the development.
