Last week, some of our volunteers hosted a stall in Hebden Bridge to talk about the first annual World Plant Milk Day. They offered taste testers of ice creams, chocolates and various plant-based milks, with access to information about why you might want to buy these products. People were receptive and interested, offering positive feedback.
Thanks to Viva! for help with providing some of the materials.
A question to all who have cut out eggs or dairy from their diet: Have you ever seen such an amazing selections of cakes, asked if there were any vegan options, then been bowled over with the answer “all of them”?!
If you think it’s too good to be true, get yourself over to Sheffield and tuck into Steel City Cakes. (A bit far away from the three valleys, but good for a day trip.) We enjoyed the Oreo and the white chocolate and rose choices (shown), both were incredibly light and moist. There were gluten-free options, doughnuts and tarts which we’ll try next time, not to mention the milkshakes.
Please note, we have not been asked or paid to promote this business — it is just the opinion of the author.
It may be raining, but you can still enjoy the approach to summer! Morrisons Todmorden have extended their vegan-friendly frozen range. Three new ice creams (also gluten-free) and several new burgers and sausages. Look out for the tubs of Swedish Glace still, further down the aisle.

In May 2017, two of our group went out to visit a local Brownies group in Todmorden. We gave a cookery demo and a talk, with cupcakes for all! It went very well, and we hope to be able to visit them again soon.
Yesterday (30 April 2017), 3 Valley Vegans was asked to cater for the Todmorden Choral Society spring 2017 concert at Todmorden Town Hall. After the performance of Herakles, a new oratorio by Tim Benjamin, supper was served.
We are delighted to have been invited by Cllr Anthony H. Greenwood JP, and are indebted to the volunteers who prepared and served the tasty finger food dishes. The entirely vegan catered event was very well received, especially the bruschetta and chocolate ‘crack’ dishes. Thanks again, Hilary, Andrew and Angie for cooking, and Elizabeth, June and Phil for serving.
The ‘profit’ that 3 Valley Vegans made from this catering activity will be donated to Animal Aid, a charity who campaign peacefully against all forms of animal abuse and promote cruelty-free living.
