CODDENHAM OPEN GARDENS AND SCARECROWS 2018
Despite numerous appeals and approaches over the last few months, I'm disappointed to report that no-one has come forward to take over the running of COGS 2018. Perhaps the event has run its course for the time being.
Planning for the event should have begun by now, so please take this item as confirmation that COGS 2018 will not be happening.
My thanks to everyone who has helped arrange and deliver COGS over the last 12 years and more and, of course, to all who have opened their lovely gardens for others to enjoy whilst raising thousands of pounds for good causes.
Perhaps another team will resurrect COGS, or something similar, in a few years time.

VILLAGE CAROL SINGING 21st DECEMBER
This wonderful tradition has been a festive event for over 50 years; everyone is welcome to join in singing carols on as many doorsteps as we can reach in a couple of hours. We will be raising money for St Elizabeth Hospice; last year we raised a magnificent £280!
Meet at Coddenham Food Stores on Thursday 21st Dec at 6.30pm; our final few carols will be at Haysel House at about 8.15pm., where we will be rewarded with seasonal hospitality! All ages and abilities are welcome. Please bring torches/lanterns, wear bright or reflective clothing…we need to be seen by passing traffic.
Participants join in at their own risk.
Please ring if you have any queries Gabrielle Barsoum 760543
WARNING : There have been a number of attempted Shed and Garden break-ins in the Village this week, the most recent being properties near and around the Church.
Everyone is asked to ensure their property is secure especially overnight and to be vigilant of any unusual activity.
