WELLBEING CENTRE, MAIN MEETING ROOM, & THE NANTUCKET SUITE
three private, calm and peaceful spaces for hire
For many years part of the premises at The Friends' Meeting House were occupied by the Pinocchio Nursery School, which closed in 2018. Those rooms have been refurbished have now re-opened as a Meditation and Wellbeing Centre. The rooms adjoin the main Meeting House and the Nantucket Suite, which are also available for hire. The Wellbeing Centre is principally equipped for practitioners to see clients and has its own private entrance, waiting and kitchen area, and toilet.
The Nantucket Suite is equipped for groups of up to 25 people. It has small and large folding tables available and plenty of chairs. It has been used to teach yoga and to hold Zen meditation sessions, as well as for many other groups to meet. It has been designed to allow wheelchair access and has a disabled toilet. Wellbeing practitioners may wish to book the space in order to provide their services to wheelchair users.
The main Meeting Room is a good space for talks or presentations as it is equipped with plenty of seating and a hearing loop.
All three spaces can be used for individual or group meditation.
Both the Wellbeing Centre and the Nantucket Suite have kitchen areas where hot drinks can be made, and food prepared. The Nantucket Suite has a microwave and a mini-cooker. The Wellbeing Centre has a mini fridge.
The Friends' Meeting House is conveniently close to the centre of town with its road and rail links. There is limited parking in the road outside, however there are many spaces available close by in the Robert Street Car Park.
It is hoped that the garden at the front of the Meeting House and Wellbeing Centre will become a Peace Garden – a place to provide refuge and time out from the stresses of life for all those who feel the need – where information about the Meeting House, the Wellbeing Centre and Quakerism can be found.
To the rear of the buildings is the Quaker burial ground which contains the remains of the founding generation of Quakers who brought their whaling ships to the Haven, creating the town of Milford in the process. Part of the old burial ground is now a wildlife refuge. Both the front and rear gardens are places of peace and tranquillity.

THE NANTUCKET SUITE
The Nantucket Room - named in honour of the founders of the Meeting - is an ideal space for group activities. It has been designed to give wheelchair access and has an integral kitchen and toilets.
