The Milford & District U3A’s next monthly talk is entitled ’The Crimea War 1853-1856’, a very topical subject just at the moment! It was by all accounts a bloody conflict and I for one don’t even know why it started and who was involved. I do know that it was where Florence came to prominence and was the inspiration for Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem The Charge of the Light Brigade. Also the emergence of the Victoria Cross. There is certainly a fascinating story to learn here and you will be able to do this on Friday 9th May when the excellent Paul Whittle will be giving a talk on this very subject. It will take place at Milford Village Hall and follows the Milford & District U3A’s AGM, which is at 2pm. This normally does not take too long. So don’t be deterred, all welcome, entry £1. It will provide an excellent opportunity to get a flavour of what the Milford and District U3A has to offer by way of dozens of activities to brighten your life in your senior years. For a comprehensive look at what activities might excite and interest
