Our mission is to make time for people over 50 and to offer opportunities and friendship in a stimulating and enjoyable environment, while providing relief for carers for those vulnerable to isolation and loneliness.
In 1985, a group of local professionals recognized a need for the provision of services for the increasing number of older people living in Milford and the surrounding villages. Many of these people were living in isolation alone, perhaps with mobility problems or being looked after by a family member or unpaid carer.
A day centre was founded in temporary accommodation at the Milford Scout Hut HQ, opening on two days a week.
After 12 years of searching and fundraising, a dedicated group of volunteers, many of whom still volunteer and support us today, found a suitable site and the funds to finance it.
In 1998, the doors of the new building were officially opened and it is now known as The Clockhouse.
