Community Fridge for Upperton


There has been much interest shown in setting up a community fridge in Upperton. A Community Fridge is a social space that brings people together to eat, connect, learn new skills and reduce food waste. There have already been community fridges set up in Langney, Old Town and Seaside, and Emmanuel Church are investigating the possibility of hosting the Upperton Fridge when their new premises are built on Upperton Road.

This is a new project and we welcome ideas and ways to support the church going forward in their investigations into what this entails. The organisers of Langney and Old Town fridges are being very helpful and we would appreciate your views.

Dr Kathy Ballard said,

“This is such a simple, yet great, idea. Local shops supply the produce, and it gives another option for those who might be struggling to make their shopping budget stretch from week to week.”

Cuts to Universal Credit plus an increase in your National Insurance payments and soaring energy prices have created a double whammy for many working families here in Upperton. Many people in work also receive Universal Credit. The changes from PM Johnson and the Conservative government mean that some working families will be hundreds of pounds worse off every year.

Johnson promised not to raise taxes at the last election. Who do Johnson and his government really represent? Certainly not working families.

The Upperton Fridge will follow the Community Fridge model used by Lib Dem Cllr Helen Burton in Langney and elsewhere.
