Community Fridge


Plans to open Marlborough’s Community Fridge, a partnership project between Marlborough Town Council and Transition Marlborough, are coming along nicely. 

The fridge co-ordinators (AKA Milly & Clare) are currently sorting out all the admin and resourcing to make the opening a success which, it is hoped, will happen in late May/early June, to coincide with the warmer days and lighter evenings.

Just to bring you up to date, the fridge itself was generously donated and set-up costs are being met through fund-raising, including a £500 seed-funding grant from the Transition Network and a further £500 awarded by Wiltshire Council’s Area Board.   Waitrose have also recently committed to donate food to the project and have also donated £350, which will keep us in volunteer refreshments and cleaning products for a very long time!  Renaissance, who manage the retirement home on London Road have also very kindly donated the cost of the materials to build the ‘pick your own’ herb/veg garden planter, which sits outside of the fridge room.   All hugely generous contributions, for which we are very grateful.

A group of willing volunteers have stepped up to help run the fridge and we are engaging with other local food retailers (Waitrose are already on board) to start building the working relationships needed to supply the fridge with a regular and varied supply of fresh and ambient foods. 

With projects like this, it is really important to listen to the views of the community, whose views will shape and inform its development.  A very short survey has been created, which will literally take 2 minutes to complete.  Your input would be very gratefully received.  

Marlborough's Community Fridge is an exciting new project for the town, which will help to signficantly reduce food waste locally.

Would you consider using the fridge, either by donating food to it or taking from it?
