Roy & Ann Gudgin

This weekend over over 250 people in Coddenham celebrated the 100th Anniversary of Gudgin’s Stores

Third generation owners, Roy & Ann Gudgin generously hosted a community tea party for all, at The Coddenham Centre, followed by an evening barbecue for shop volunteers and their partners.

More details will follow, but we are loading up over 150 photographs kindly taken by Georgie Kerr, which while unedited are intended to capture the many faces that shared the celebrations with Roy & Ann and the Community Shop, (see link below).

If your face wasn’t captured or we didn’t catch ‘’your best side’, we are sorry. Hopefully the reportage still captures the moment for all. Please comment below on the day or send us your own photographs and we’ll include if we can.

Our huge thanks to everyone who worked all weekend to make the event such a success.

Congratulations everyone!
