This is a walking route I’ve re-discovered recently, primarily due to the coronavirus lockdown and trying to find different places for my daily exercise.
East Hagbourne, Didcot’s closest neighbour, is a quintessentially English village. With its pub, community shop and a main road full of historic houses it’s an attractive place to live. Perhaps one day when I win the lottery…
We’ve seen our fair share of rain and wind over the last month. But worry not, spring is on the way and hopefully the weather will improve. Even if it doesn’t, there are plenty of indoor events in and around Didcot in March 2020:
The Didcot Good Neighbour Scheme (DGNS) matches volunteers with elderly, lonely or isolated people in the Didcot area. I met Sandy, the volunteer co-ordinator, to find out more about the service and how local residents can help, or be helped.
Happy New Year! January isn’t the best month of the year for events but I’ve found several to keep you busy in the weeks ahead. Read on for things to do in and around Didcot in January 2020.
This is a short walk from East Hagbourne, best tackled outside the winter months. Despite the name this is not a walk across heather strewn moorland. At certain times of the year, bog might be more appropriate!
I hope you all managed to get away for a summer break, or at least a few days out in the sun. I cannot believe that I’m already seeing adverts for Christmas parties! In the meantime read on for things to do in and around Didcot in September 2019.
Lots of family friendly events this month as befits the summer holidays. Read on for details of Didcot events in August 2019.
Have you visited the East Hagbourne scarecrow trail yet? If not, you’ve got until Sunday 9 June to visit so don’t delay! There are some fantastic scarecrows on display; are any of these your favourite?
A bumper month for local events. There are so many things to do in and around Didcot in June 2019 that I’ve extended my post to cover 15 events!
