The Mix is currently closed to the public during the Covid-19 crisis, however...

"The Mix Community Fridge is still delivering free surplus food, donated by local supermarkets, to local households, prioritising those most in need.

If you or someone you know is struggling – either you can’t get out or you don’t have enough money to buy food at this time, please get in touch at

More and more people are needing help locally and it makes no sense for good food to go to waste: to continue doing this we need to raise funds to cover our basic costs of delivering food and keeping the operation going.

If you feel able to make a donation to support this project, however small, please email us at for ways you can donate, or via our Facebook page

Please note that the food deliveries are free to those in need, and will continue to be so - no donations are required from recipients.

With grateful thanks. Looking forward to seeing you all again as soon as it's possible.

Mim & Jo and the Sustainable Wantage Team"

Hot Desk in The Mix

The Mix is available four days a week as a ‘hot desk’ space. People can subscribe to have access to The Mix as a space to work from in town on Mon/Tues & Thurs/Fridays. We’ve installed high desks, decent wifi and low table space to complement the existing meeting table and chairs. There is access to a meeting area, a fridge and kettle, and basic kitchen and toilet facilities.   A keyless entry system provides access to The Mix for subscribers between the hours of 9am and 5pm on hot desking days.

Contact Us to enquire about Hot Desking here.

Local Groups Network

We have created a local group network for Wantage, Grove and the surrounding area. The purpose of the network is to be a place where local groups can share information and resources, get to know about each other and create stronger links.
If you are part of a local community organisation and would like it to be added to the network, please use this link to send an email confirming the contact details and we will include the group on the network. You can add more than one organisation if you like.

Yes! Please include us in the local group network

Make Stuff Happen!

Got an idea for a local project or activity? Maybe we can help you make it happen. Whether it's a planting project, make and mend, breadmaking, foraging walks, DIY insulating, bike maintenance, group buying, water saving, seed swapping, energy projects, swishing or anything else that involves sustainability, we would love to hear about it. The possibilities are endless and exciting, and, as much as our active members would like to do them all, there just aren't enough hours in the day! That's where you come in - if you would like talk through an idea, large or small, get in touch. We may be able to offer the support it needs to get going, such as publicity or equipment.

If you would like to support the group more directly, we are always on the lookout for keen people. Our areas of interest often overlap each other, but broadly cover:

Food - supporting local produce & growing your own
Energy - saving energy & renewable generation
Resources - reducing waste & consumption through recycling, composting, upcycling
Environment - protection and promotion of our natural environment and biodiversity
Transport  - Promoting low impact travel like biking, public transport, car share
Community - events, supporting local independent trade, connecting with other groups
