Welcome to Harwell Village Hall!
Come to the AGM on Wednesday 7th June at 7.30pm and see what’s going on at your Village Hall!
Find out where we are with our loan, latest news on events and fundraising and what’s still to come at the hall.
Ours is a vibrant and well-used Village Hall, originally built in the late 1920s and situated in the heart of Harwell village in the Thames Valley, Oxfordshire, just a few minutes from Didcot.
The hall is the focus of many groups from the village and the surrounding area including keep-fit, dancing, short mat bowls, arts & crafts, music groups and under-fives clubs as well as providing a venue for the local WI and the Gardeners club. It is also the local Polling Station.
The hall is available to individuals to hire for adult or children’s parties as well as other social events. A registered charity, we are funded by the revenue from this hire which is used to cover the cost of insurance, repairs, heating, etc.
Village Hall Redevelopment Project
We have just completed a £1.3million project to extend and refurbish the Village Hall and I am sure you will agree it looks splendid! For details of how we did it, take a look at the Hall Redevelopment Project pages.
In 2010 the Village Hall Committee of Trustees began to explore possible options both to refurbish and extend the Hall or, move to a new site and build a new facility.
Extensive surveys were done of the usage, both current and future and the requirements were carefully defined. After thorough
investigation, risk analysis and consultation with the village, a decision was made: we would remain on the existing site, extend the main hall and refurbish the existing hall!
Our Hall Redevelopment Project pages give details of the approved plans and describe how we are raising funds to realise our goal.
If you would like to help or become a trustee of our hall then please contact us for more information.
