CCRG Member Feature - Winter 2022
The Coddenham Centre
Our next in our member feature is The Coddenham Centre, which last November celebrated with the help of villagers and volunteers throughout the parish, the one hundredth anniversary of the Recreation and Sports Field.
The History Club team with some technical help from our website admin prepared a fantastic look back at its history to the present day – click the button below – or click the main article for further information on The Coddenham Centre and links to the centres website for the latest activities and news.
Your Community Website
Starting out in March 2020 and in September the same year becoming the Coddenham Community Response Group (CCRG), we have built Coddenham’s first ever community website as a platform for communication and engagement amongst the people of Coddenham, the surrounding areas and around the world. It provides current local news, a calendar with details of events, classified advertisements, sound bites, history and opportunities for everyone to have their say.
We’ve bought together those organizations within the community who wanted to combine their skills and resources to benefit everyone. Representation from the Coddenham Centre, the Coddenham Club, the Community Shop, the Day Foundation, the Gardemau Trust, the Coddenham History Club, St Mary’s Church and the Parochial Church Council have worked seamlessly together for the benefit of all. We are grateful to every one of them, including benefactors past and present, who have helped provide funding and contributions.
Our services continue to include:
- This dedicated website: www.coddenham-parish.uk
- A dedicated support email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- A support phone number: 01449 760313
- Suffolk County Council ‘Home But Not Alone’ service on 0800 876 6926 (9am to 5pm, seven days a week)
- A ‘Have Your Say’ comments section, if you wish to share comment, concerns or encouragement.
- You can also comment on individual website posts or share them with your social media network.

The Coddenham Community Response Group and the Environment.
Early in 2021 we agreed it was in the interests of the community to promote an awareness and response when we could to the environmental emergency. There is no intention to ‘preach’, but to simply support initiatives and share learning on what we can contribute as a parish, to the national movement for a zero carbon country.
The Coddenham Centre and the Day Foundation already have initiatives in place and other members of the group are developing their own awareness and environmental agendas. We’ll be soon adding a dedicated page to this site to report on progress. Meanwhile, if you have any proposals or news of your own ideas, please get in touch.
Save money on your bills and reduce your carbon footprint
Did you know?
The average household carbon footprint in Coddenham is 24.6 tonnes CO2e per year. You could save approximately 1 tonne CO2e per year just by incorporating energy saving behaviours into your daily routine. That’s the equivalent to driving 4,500 miles in the average petrol car or one return flight from London to New York!
We have developed a series of advice guides to help you use less energy and are available online visit https://www.greensuffolk.org/at-home/
The guides cover no-low cost measures as well as higher cost measures like solar panels and heat pumps so no matter what your circumstances are, there is something you can do.
Our Community Energy Adviser
If you would like further advice, Sarah is our dedicated advisor. Sarah works for Groundwork East and has a number of years’ experience providing energy advice to people. Sarah can be contacted on 07720 098980 or email@example.com
The Coddenham Community Response Group Terms of Reference
The CCRG originally came together because of a community wish to see a local organised response to COVID19. We have built upon that exciting collaboration along with many more volunteers who are helping to provide services and community support. We also liaise with Mid Suffolk Council, Suffolk County Council and local Parish Councils.
We meet virtually approximately bi-monthly or on demand, with notes on all our meetings available on request. We welcome representatives from the community either personally or through this website. We are a loose collaboration that exists solely to serve the community, avoiding political or personal agenda, always striving to provide the best we can, together.
Some more of the Story So Far
In Christmas 2021 we saw goodwill parcels being distributed to Haysel House again with the help of the Day Foundation. The History Club continue to digitise Coddenham’s valuable records through the website and shared them with all. We’ve continued to respond to local issues such as prompting action on our Broom Hill, supported the strategy for a Greener Suffolk and celebrated new local authors. Sadly we again said goodbye to some members of the community. Happily however, we all got together and celebrated the Recreation & Sports field 100th birthday.
And on into 2022
A look back at 2021 will follow here soon and we’ll be celebrating our second birthday this Spring!
We’ve previously shared accolades, including the BBC Radio Suffolk ‘Making a Difference’ Award, BBC interviews about the village and always cheered each other on. Our volunteers be they in the shop, on our help line, distributing newsletters, working with the Church or Coddenham Centre or maintaining our website, have all played a positive and invaluable part in our all working together.
We are members of the Suffolk Good Neighbour Network and committed to ensuring the Environment was added to our community agenda. In 2021 we had our First Birthday which we celebrated in our last newsletter here.

Wishing all our Community and Friemds A Very Happy & Safe New Year
