Probably the widest range of vegan cakes and desserts in Yorkshire — Steel City Cakes in Sheffield

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.

Todmorden Choral Society spring concert 2017 catering

Catering for Todmorden Choral Society spring 2017 concert
Some of the savoury dishes served. Inset: the sweet dishes.

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.

#Todmorden Neighbourhood Plan Survey

A Neighbourhood Plan for Todmorden and its surrounding communities gives local people the opportunity to have a say about new development in their area.
It is important to ensure that the Todmorden Neighbourhood Plan properly reflects local views and opinions – so please let us know what you think!
Once its approved, the Todmorden Neighbourhood Plan would have to be taken into account when planning decisions are made by Calderdale District Council, and, on appeal, by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.
A Neighbourhood Plan can cover a wide range of topics and have a say about new issues on vacant and under-used sites, so please let us know your views today.
