About Us

Set up in 2012, inOdiham is a not-for-profit organisation run by a friendly group of local residents, who believe in the benefits of a close-knit community and work together to enrich the village experience for everyone.

As a registered Community Interest Company, our team consists entirely of unpaid volunteers – meaning no shareholders and no members of the Committee receive payment for their services.

inOdiham is closely supported by various local authorities and companies – all of whom share the joint aim of delighting visitors and helping bring the admirable Odiham community closer together.

What we do

As well as the 3 annual events below (and the occasional one-off event) we also arrange the Friday Grocery Market, the Christmas Lights along the length of the High Street, the street-level planters in the High Street as well as the mass bulb-planting in the grass verges approaching Odiham … we’re a very busy bunch!

A family-friendly day with food, drink, live music and dancing.

Enjoy over 50 artisan food and drink stalls, talks and live music.

A festive, fun-filled evening with a variety of gift stalls.

Reasons to Visit

Other than the fabulous events, there are plenty of reasons to visit the Saxon village of Odiham, including the wide Georgian High Street with it’s eclectic mix of independent shops and eateries, as well as one of the last surviving Pest Houses in Britain … and the Village Stocks!

Odiham and the surrounding area also boasts some of the best rural and canal walks in Hampshire and the local stretch of the Basingstoke Canal is home to the start of the Magna Carta Trail at King John’s Castle and runs along the site of a royal Deer Park.

So come and take a stroll through the village, across open countryside, along either the Basingstoke Canal or the River Whitewater or over expanses of common – all of which give the opportunity for great views and to see nature at its best.

For more information on the heritage that Odiham has to offer check out either visitodiham.org.uk or odiham-society.org, but in the meantime, here is a gallery to give you an idea of what to expect when you visit our lovely village, including various events throughout the year, plus the bi-annual Armed Forces Day celebrations organised by RAF Odiham and the Parish Council. 

You can also get a fascinating bird’s eye view of the village via the interactive aerial map by local photographer Luke Meldon.

Our inOdiham volunteers work hard to ensure we keep Bands in the Bury as a FREE TO ATTEND event, designed to celebrate Armed Forces day……..our chance to do something to show our support for RAF Odiham and bring the community together.

We will announce more great bands from rockabilly, to 60’s to Morden day, over the coming weeks.

Please share to help ensure the event is a success.

Our brilliant volunteers (if we do say so ourselves) will be getting together for a meeting this evening, primarly to progress Bands in the Bury (25th of June) and ensure we are on track for Flavour Fest (29th August). We will be discussing other initiatives we have in flight such as bringing back the flowers on the high street and finding a way to help ensure the children within the community have something special to mark the jubilee (on which note Happy Birthday your Majesty for today!)

If you have any thoughts, comments, ideas - even grumbles about any of our events or initiatives to promote our community, please do drop us a comment and we can work it into our meeting.
