Postcards From The Harwell Feast

Harwell Feast

If you are local to South Oxfordshire it’s likely you will have heard of the Harwell Feast.  I understand this has traditionally taken place on the May bank holiday weekend for many years, dating back as far as 1979 (although it could be longer ago than that!).  Every year the Harwell Feast event attracts several thousand locals who enjoy watching the parade through the village.  The parade includes floats made by local groups such as the village school, playgroup, rainbows, etc.  Following the parade is a day of fun at the village recreation ground with stalls from local sellers, fair rides, demonstrations and more.  It’s a proper traditional village affair and I absolutely love it!

This year was particularly exciting as Lois was on one of the floats.  Her Beavers group made an airplane to celebrate the RAF’s 100 year anniversary.  They did such an amazing job and I’m gutted for them that they didn’t get a prize.  All of the floats looked brilliant and it’s great to see the whole community make such an effort.  Here are the shots from this years parade.  Enjoy!
