Charity information

Harwell Village Hall

The trustees of Harwell Village Hall aim to keep our community building in a fit state for all our users. We are coming to the end of a £1. 3 million project; an ambitious rebuilding and refurbishing project, giving us two well equipped halls, (one with retractable seating), a fully fitted kitchen, new toilet facilities, a committee room, Parish Clerks office and an entrance foyer cum cafe area. Our aim now is to maintain these buildings and ensure that they are well used by the local community.

Founded 1960
