During lockdown, we have concentrated our efforts on delivering surplus food to the local community, prioritising those in most need – find out more on The Mix Community Fridge page. Thanks to the generosity of your donations, the support of local supermarkets and distributors, and the amazing support of volunteers. Also, our Repair Cafe techs have been fixing up old laptops to pass on to students needing a device to learn from home.

The Mix is a community space run by Sustainable Wantage, which aims to provide practical ways to live more sustainably and bring our local community together – read our story.

Repair Cafe at The Mix

When we reopen fully, you’ll be able to use the Resource Bank, attend sustainability workshops, fix stuff at the Repair Cafe and borrow items from our growing ‘Library of Things’.

In the meantime, join us for monthly Green Drinks discussions, which happen on the last Wednesday of every month – now via Zoom! Talks are around sustainable themes and everyone is welcome.
