On 20th February, a group of over 50's came together to form the Mature Millers Association, which looks to give older adults a voice in the Rotherham community.The 20th February saw the first meeting of the Mature Millers Association. The new group is aiming to enrich the health and social well being of people in Rotherham of people over the age of 50.
The Mature Millers Association has been set up independently and is being supported in its launch by RUCST. At the first meeting, a chair, vice-chair, secretary and treasurer were elected. The group also discussed the specific objectives for the group and talked about ways to help and counteract loneliness.
Heritage Officer Kathryn Wild said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the older generation of Rotherham to have their voice heard in the community.
“Our Memories of Football sessions really engage older adults in their own personal physical, emotional and social wellbeing, but the Mature Millers Association gives them a chance to have their say in the community as well.”
The Mature Millers Association currently meets on Monday mornings at the New York stadium and on Monday afternoons at Birch Park Court residential housing area in Rotherham.
