Sustainable Devizes Opens Community Fridge

It’s early days, but it’s great to see the Devizes Community Fridge standing proud in the Shambles today. Running since the beginning of the month as a pilot scheme, Fridays will be the day to visit the fridge, the concept is simple, take out only what you need, put in items which you don’t.

It has been a success in Marlborough, among a hundred other towns, and stands to cut down on waste and provide food for those in need. The project has been coordinated by Sustainable Devizes and the Devizes Living Room group, as the mastermind of Martin Elliot.

There will an official launch on Friday 18th November in the Market Place, but it really is one of those projects the success of hugely depends on those aware and making good use of it. So, we welcome the community fridge, so pleased to see it there when passing through, and I wish it all the best of success.

And, correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that is the first time I have ever wished a fridge the best of success!!
