Sue Whitlock, Parish Councillor and Trustee of the Community Centre switched on the lights on the Memory Tree outside the Centre this week.
The Memory Tree is aimed to light up the lives of people living with dementia and their families.
People can buy bows and baubles in memory of loved ones to raise money for Milford's Dementia Action Group, which funds some of the groups in the village, as well as providing free information sessions about dementia.
The Group have been overwhelmed by the support of the village during the past year. South Lawn Hotel and Verveine are among the many businesses who have offered support and the U3A and the WI have organised events, said Jenny Whitley, on behalf of the Group. "We are delighted that the WI are running this week's First Friday Lunch for us. The food will be great and it's raising money for a very worthwhile cause."
