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 Weekly Market in the High Street, the Christmas Lights along the length of the High Street, the street-level planters in the High Street, the Summer flower baskets on the lampposts as well as the mass bulb-planting in the grass verges approaching Odiham … we’re a very busy bunch!

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.

NEW YEAR 2024

2023 was a wonderful year for inOdiham with great successes for our three key events, We really enjoy hosting these and from the feedback we have received we think you enjoyed them too! Please see below for this year’s dates and once again thanks to all for your support!

BANDS IN THE BURY

Save the Date – Saturday June 29, 2024

ODIHAM FOOD FAYRE

Save the Date – Monday August 26, 2024

Odiham CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA

Save the Date – Sunday November 24, 2024

Further information on all of the above will be posted as it becomes available.

Good news – we have once again had permission to hang the popular flower baskets in the High Street – Hampshire Highways have granted permission to place the baskets on 11 of the lampposts in the centre of Odiham. The two planters are currently filled with winter plants but will be re-planted in May with summer flowers. The baskets and planters are provided and maintained by inOdiham – we save money by doing much of the watering ourselves. Not an easy task in the hot summer sun.

The Friday Weekly Market is going from strength to strength. Since February we have had a new bread supplier,  Authentique Bakery, who have brought a wide variety of bread, cakes, samosas and pies for us to enjoy. We still have our other popular stalls, Tommy and his team on Fruit and Veg, Ed on The Cheese Stall, Richard with Butler Country Estates Smoked Trout and Helen and Matt from Woodland Pig Pork Products. We have had pop-up visits from Marzalicious Marzipan, Everything’s Good with Wood, Scribble & Beam and The River Test Distillery Gin Company. We have also had further enquires for stalls selling Goat Milk Products and Lamb.

Please come along and support this wonderful resource that brings food straight to your High Street.
