Butterworth Hall Community Centre


Butterworth Hall Community Centre grew out of the old Milnrow Welfare Centre that was used to provide a lunch club for the elderly and space for community groups in the evening
When Rochdale Council announced its impending closure in 2002 the then users got together to save the centre, which passed into community ownership in 2004.
It is a volunteer run community centre providing for groups requiring a venue in Milnrow. The Hall has a large room with seating for up to 70. A small lounge area with seating for 15. A kitchen area and disabled toilet facilities.

Butterworth flail Community Centre enables a wide variety of community and voluntary organisations, and agencies, deliver a range of activities and services to the Milnrow community. We also host the Pennines Business and Tourism Forum to raise awareness of our independent businesses, such as through our Sinai! Business Saturday. We also promote our local heritage, celebrating Milnrow’s famous son John Collier (aka Tim Bobbin) with an annual Tine Bobbin Festival.

Bryan Teeny, Chairman of the centre’s Management Committee, said: “We are very proud of what has been achieved for Milnrow and Newhey; we have gone from a dilapidated and unloved building to a vibrant, well maintained centre that is home to 20 local user groups and we get a steady stream of requests to take up vacant time slots.”

More coming soon!
