The public meeting to form the Milford & District U3A was held on the 6th April 1999 and established a steering committee. Full membership of the Third Age Trust began in September 1999 with the branch having 200 members and offering 12 interest groups. Several of those groups remain firm favourites and continue to this day, some even with the same leaders.
The membership has grown to almost 800 and the number of interest groups available to members is now over 70.
We are always willing to try new ideas and will set up groups for quite small numbers or expand those of huge interest so that two or more meetings are available to accommodate everyone. This policy is solely dependent on our marvellous, unpaid, volunteer leaders who freely give their time to encourage members to take part in self help learning.
