Official Launch Hurst Green Community Fridge
Wednesdays official launch of our Community Fridge at Aggies was a joyous occasion. Our Mayor Jackie Wren and Councillor Cameron Mackintosh came together to declare our community fridge officially open. We served tea, coffee and cake to everyone who came creating a lovely atmosphere where people could chat, make friends and relax. This was especially welcome after the isolation of covid.
Some brought food from their allotments and gardens that they had grown. Others brought items from their grocery shop or store cupboards and homemade chutneys and jams. The supermarkets were very generous in giving us stock that had not been sold. All who came were welcome to take from our Community Fridge or simply have a cup of tea and a chat or both.
The ethos of our Fridge is to combat food waste, help the environment, feed those in need, and share what we have. We are inspired by Jesus who showed us generosity, love and concern when he fed the 5000 all for free.
If you would like to help be involved then please email Reverend Lotwina Farodoye (Lotwina@stjhurstgreen.co.uk). We could always do with help setting up tables etc, collecting food, clearing away afterwards, chatting to guests and making tea, baking cakes.
Hope to see you every Wednesday at Aggies on the Green from 11am to 12.30pm. If you are dropping off supplies, please come at 10.30am on a Wednesday to Aggies.
