By the Community, for the Community

Designed ‘by the Community, for the Community‘, it was always intended to develop a broader role of engaging the local population, with representation from all our stakeholders while being a window for the world on ‘all things Coddenham’.

Our news pages therefore are continuing to grow with up to date information for our village and wider parish, with further insight into local life and activities provided by our History Club, Community Shop, the Coddenham Club, Church, the Coddenham Centre and other local charities that support the site and community.

This is a thriving village, established before Roman times, that works together to support each other while welcoming visitors and communication from across the country and around the World.

The Coddenham Community Response Group

The Coddenham Community Response Group (CCRG) was originally established as The Coddenham COVID19 Response Group to collaborate in helping and supporting the parish, particularly those most vulnerable and isolated. This part of of our role is unchanged, but in September 2020, with the agreement of all those represented, we adjusted our name to reflect our broader collaboration for the benefit of all. We nonetheless remain alert to the ongoing threat of COVID19 and urge anyone in the Parish to make contact if they are in need of support, or know of someone who is.

Our services continue to include:

It has never been more important that we support our community and look after our neighbours and ourselves. Please use the links and contact numbers on this website for the very latest information and to request any help and support you need during these unprecedented times.
