The Coddenham Parish Website is a community service, supporting the village and surrounding areas, with local news and information plus help for those facing challenges, including those of the COVID-19 pandemic. Wherever you are located, welcome!
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 now 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, Church, the Coddenham Centre and local charities that support the site.
This is a thriving community, 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 COVID-19 Response Group
The Coddenham COVID-19 Response Group (CCRG) was established to co-ordinate help and support for the parish, particularly to those most vulnerable and isolated and we urge anyone in the parish to make contact if they are need of anything.
These services include:

You can help research on Covid-19
Help slow the spread of #COVID19 and identify at risk cases sooner by self-reporting your symptoms daily, even if you feel well. This now established tool is helping Kings College and the NHS research while sharing local and national data. It takes less than a minute to report. Perhaps it’s something we can do as a community, if we are not doing already?
