Your Community Website

Starting out in March and in September 2020 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:

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.

Our scope and intent is covered in our Terms of Reference and can be found here.

Coddenham Community Shop receives BBC 'Make a Difference' Award

by BBC | Radio Suffolk

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 enviromental 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 enviromental 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.

Community Engagement – Some of the Story So Far

Last Christmas we saw more gift parcels being distributed with the help of the Day Foundation, taking distributions to well over one hundred recipients in 2020. We’ve seen our History Club set out on the path of digitising  Coddenham’s valuable records through the website and sharing them with all. We’ve discussed important local issues and said goodbye to distinguished members of the community.

We’ve also shared accolades, including the BBC Radio  Suffolk ‘Making a Difference’ Award,  BBC interviews about the village and 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.

This year we joined the Suffolk Good Neighbour Network and committed to ensuring the Environment was added to our community agenda. We also had our First Birthday which we celebrated in our last newsletter here.
