Welcome to Hartest Village Website
Our beautiful village is over 1000 years old and is probably as quintessentially English as you can imagine.
It boasts a fabulous village green, church, a great pub, Primary School, a butcher, a vineyard and even it's own microbrewery.
Local countryside is perfect for walking, cycling and horseriding.

HARTEST PRIMARY SCHOOL COMMUNITY SWIMMING
Last summer, Hartest Primary opened its swimming pool for a few sessions for wider community use. To expand on this, sessions need to be run by a group of volunteers who have obtained a shallow water lifeguarding certificate. (Training sessions for this are held at the school). To comply with Health and Safety
regulations which are needed for insurance cover, the lifeguards cannot be encumbered by looking after their own children whilst watching over others. Therefore, there is an appeal to members of the community who would be prepared to train and watch over the poolside for an hour at a time.
The pool will be open May/June until August/September and it is proposed that some community sessions run after school hours, at weekends and during the school summer holidays.
Times would be arranged with the volunteers to cover on a rota basis. In this initial instance, please contact Mary Burr on 01284 830638 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions and to show your interest in helping.
‘People on Wheels’ is available to all residents in Hartest, Boxted,
Somerton and Hawkedon.
We provide a car driving service for anyone in need of
transport. The service is primarily for medical needs such as appointments to Hospital,
GP, Dentist, Chemist, Optician etc., and social needs (to the Village Institute or visiting a
friend for example).
There is no cost for being driven. If you need help or know anyone
who does, contact John Kendall on 01284 789326.
We have a bank of drivers who
have kindly offered to help.
