If you’re at the Weald shop today, we have some wonderful nursery grown apple trees looking for a new home. Donations welcomed – they’ll be used to fund the work of the Community Fridge – but not necessary. If you’d like an apple tree, come and collect one, they’re going fast!

Before we get into some good news – would anybody like these lovely house-shaped shelves, donated by one of Weald’s fantastic volunteers last year? They’ve been a valuable part of our work, but our new stainless steel shelving is about to arrive and we need a new home for the white ones. The wooden ones… Continue reading Weald Community Fridge success story
