Milford), in one or more of the following ways:
- The relief of the aged and poor;

- The provision and support, with the object of improving the
condition of life for the residents of the area in the interests of
social welfare of facilities for recreation and other leisure time

The Charity is for the benefit of Belper residents, so meetings

is provided free of charge.
