Local news,  information and help for those facing challenges, including those of the COVID-19 pandemic. Wherever you are located, welcome! 

Your Community Website.

Since March 2020 the Coddenham Community Response Group (CCRG), have built Coddenham’s first ever community website as a platform for communication and engagement amongst the people of Coddenham, the surrounding area and around the world. It provides current local news, a calendar with details of events, classified advertisements (more needed please), sound bites, recordings 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, recently 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 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.

Coddenham Community Shop receives BBC 'Make a Difference' Award

by BBC | Radio Suffolk

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 continuely 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 does.

Community support & engagement

At 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 latest newsletter here.
