    In the village you will find two shops; a butchers and newsagent/off licence, for all those day to day essentials. For the weekly shop, visit Tesco or Sainsbury's in Didcot where you will also find a number of high street stores, as well as one-off boutiques for that something a little bit different. The village has its own pub - The Hart of Harwell, where you can enjoy a relaxing drink or something from their great menu of freshly produced food. The best thing about life in Harwell? That would have to be the sense of community. There are a number of clubs and societies, including Scouts and tennis, rugby and football clubs. On the May Bank Holiday of each year, The Harwell Feast takes place. Enjoy the celebratory parade through the village, watch an exciting sheepdog display or take a drive back in time with the display of historic cars. The feast itself comes courtesy of a cow or a couple of pigs that are roasted for the occasion.

    For those with children, Harwell Primary School is less than a ten minute walk from Alder View, while Didcot is home to a number of secondary schools.

    Whether you have to commute, or if you're travelling for pleasure, it couldn't be easier. Didcot Railway Station is 2 miles away and offers regular services to London Paddington. If your journey is by car, you will find the A34 just 2 miles away, connecting you with the M4 and M40 motorways.

    Harwell Feast 2015The Harwell Feast, which has taken place in the village for more than a hundred years, was a huge success again this year thanks to a generous donation from leading local housebuilder Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire.

    The developer, which is preparing to launch high-quality new homes at Alder View on the outskirts of the village, helped to feed the fun at the Feast by donating £500 towards the costs of a Viking re-enactment at the event, which took place on Monday 30th May.

    Gareth Buxton, chair of the Harwell Feast Committee, says: “This event has been running almost every year for around one hundred years, with just the odd lull here and there.

    “The event takes place throughout the village and this year featured a parade with 10 floats, which were all created by local voluntary groups, such as the Scouts and the Women’s Institute, as well as a classic car show and Abingdon Brass Band.

    “On the recreation ground, where the parade came to an end, there were over 70 stalls, some fairground attractions, a falconry display and two marquees for local entertainment acts.
    “Taylor Wimpey’s donation paid for half the cost of the Vikings re-enactment that featured in the parade and consisted of approximately 30 to 50 warriors. The Vikings also had a camp set up for a living history act, while they performed battle scenes and demonstrated how Viking equipment was used.

    “The Feast is a fantastic way of getting people together and helping to support the local community. By charging a small entry fee we’re able to raise funds to donate to various organisations and groups in the village.

    “We’re very appreciative of Taylor Wimpey’s donation, and with a lot of building going on in the area it’s important to host events like the Feast and give people new to the area the opportunity to take an active part in the local community. That’s something we, the Feast Committee, are keen to promote and we regularly host events in Harwell.

    “The community really enjoyed the event so it was very important to receive this support as without donations like this we would struggle to host the event every year. 

    “All of the people involved in organising the Feast were volunteers and it costs in the region of £12,000 to host the event. The entire community really came together to make it a reality, with local farmers letting us borrow their tractors and hay bales while we lent the marquees to other community groups free of charge in the lead up to the Feast.”

    Nikki Gibson, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire, says: “It’s extremely important to invest in the communities where we build our homes, so we were delighted to lend our support to the long-running Harwell Feast.  

    “This event has done a fantastic job of bringing everyone in the village together for many years, so we were proud to play a part.”
