The Neighbours’ Hall was given by the Reverend and Mrs Percival Pott in 1924 for recreational and social use by the villagers of Great Milton, Little Milton and The Haseleys – hence the name and location of the building (Church Lane, next door to Le Manoir).
The Reverend and Mrs Pott set up a Charitable Trust to be administered by the Church of St Mary’s of Great Milton. The day-to-day running of the Hall is undertaken by the Neighbours’ Hall Management Committee which welcomes the interest of new members.
The Neighbours' Hall is a large and recently refurbished community hall with central heating and a well-equipped kitchen. The Hall benefits from a bar, a stage and a smaller room opening onto an enclosed patio garden area with garden seating which overlooks Le Manoir's orchard. There is ample car parking available. The Hall is ideal for community groups, children’s parties, family get-togethers, company functions, weddings and special celebrations. Recently installed DMX colour-changing LED lighting adds special effects for dances, live music, and theatre. The Neighbours' Hall is available for hire by the hour or the day.
The smaller room, The Orchard Room, can be hired separately for small groups and business meetings.
The Hall is licensed to hold 100 people and is available for hire by the hour (£15) or full-day (£120) and includes the use of kitchen and equipment. All bookings will be made in line with current government guidelines with regards to the Hall capacity.

Great Milton Recreation Ground and Pavilion
The Recreation Ground was given to the people of Great Milton in 1931 to provide leisure and recreation facilities for the residents of the village. As well as the large playing field there is also a well-equipped modern Pavilion and a newly refurbished children’s playground with all the latest play equipment including a zip-wire, tunnel slide and basket swing.
The Recreation Ground is home to Great Milton Cricket Club and Great Milton Athletics Club. In addition, the Rec and Pavilion host the Village Fete, the Fireworks Party, Parish Council Meetings along with a diverse selection of other events including Great Milton Choir rehearsals, Yoga classes, drama classes, an Art & Crafts club, christenings, private parties and other ad-hoc meetings.
Please contact Michele Block (Bookings Secretary) on 01844 278233 to make a booking.
The Pavilion is an ideal venue for private parties or meetings, it has a well-equipped kitchen with a hob, oven and fridge/freezer and a large serving hatch to the main hall. The hall is light, clean and airy with plenty of fold-out tables and chairs ideal for any function. The tables and chairs can also be hired separately if you are having a large function at home.
Alternatively, if you are looking for a football/cricket venue or somewhere to put a large inflatable for a child’s party then the Recreation Ground/Pavilion facilities are perfect, and include home and away changing rooms for visiting sports teams.
Hire costs for the Pavilion:
The Pavilion is available to hire for morning (0800-1300) or afternoon (1300-1800) sessions at £30.00 per session for village residents, and £50.00 per session for external hire.
The Recreation Ground can also be hired separately for cricket or football matches. Please contact Michele Block on 01844 278233 for further details and current availability.
Please note that all hirers are responsible for cleaning and tidying the facility after use and for ensuring it is left as found – thank you.
