MEMBERS of the public are being invited to 'take what they need' from a community fridge scheme in Wrexham.

The Caia Park Partnership (CPP) was formed about 20 years ago by local people, church leaders and local councillors.

It works with individuals, communities and partner organisations in Caia Park and Wrexham wide to provide activities, services and facilities that meet identified needs.

Its latest scheme that it has introduced is the community fridge, which allows people to come and pick up items they need such as bread, vegetables and more.

With the cost of living crisis rumbling on, schemes like these are becoming introduced more and more with similar community fridges also based in the likes of Mold and Buckley.

As people struggle to put food on the table due to increasing costs, fridge schemes such as these offer a lifeline to many as they can take what they need for free.

A statement from CPP on their newest addition read: "The Caia Park Partnership Community Fridges are now open to the public. Come in and take what you need!

"All food gratefully donated by local vendors, available free to all residents of the Caia Estate."

The CPP community fridge, based at the Caia Park Centre on Prince Charles Road, will be open between 11am and 3.30pm, Tuesday to Friday.
