Milford On Sea

Events

The Milford on Sea U3A monthly meetings are currently being held on Zoom. From December they will be on the first Tuesday of each month. Lymington U3A are also holding their meetings on Zoom and have extended an invitation to Milford members. We are inviting Lymington members to our meetings. All members who have an email address (95% of members) are sent a link to the meeting. We are sorry that we cannot yet offer an opportunity for those without internet access to join meetings.

When restrictions are lifted they will once again be held in the Main Hall, Milford on Sea Community Centre, generally on the first Tuesday of each month, from 2 – 4pm. Subject to availability and space, guests are welcome, subject to space, at a small charge.

In the meantime, although social events are currently suspended, groups of 6 are getting together for coffee mornings in either the Community Centre (bring your own coffee) or South Lawn Hotel (buy a coffee). These are organised by our U3A Committee. For more information, please send a message to the Chair from the Contact page)

The Milford on Sea Community Centre also runs Events that may be of interest to you.
