The 3 Valley Vegans event for May 2019 is a walk from Todmorden to Littleborough, followed by late lunch at Veggie Vixen.

Come and join us on Sunday 26th May.

  • Start: outside the Golden Lion pub in Todmorden at 11.00 am.
  • Finish: Littleborough for a late lunch/afternoon tea at the Veggie Vixen in Littleborough (38 Victoria Street, OL15 9DB)

We’ll walk along the canal towpath which will be easy walking but we advise you to wear walking shoes/boots as some parts of the route can be muddy. Bring a rainproof coat and vegan snacks and drinks with you to keep you going until we reach the Veggie Vixen.

For anyone who wants a longer walk Elizabeth is going to start at Hebden Bridge at 9.30 joining the towpath near the Co-op in Hebden Bridge.

18 Jan: Social at Humblest of Pleasures

Veganuary social posterOur support for Veganuary continues throughout January 2019 with our social gathering.

  • Friday, 18 January
  • 2pm for 1-2 hours
  • Humblest of Pleasures, Hebden Bridge (35 Market Street, HX7 6EU, bus stop near the Co-op)

Come along if you would like to share your experience of trying a plant-based diet for the new year, or if you have any questions that you’d like to ask other people who are trying it out too. Perhaps you would like to know about shopping, cooking or eating out? How do you get on with friends, family or colleagues? What have you found most difficult and most easy?

There will be a chance to speak to people who have been vegan for many years who can describe how the health and well-being aspects have worked out for them.

We will be hosting a quiz at the end of the month too! Details to follow.

 

3 Jan: ‘Veganuary’ film and talk night

New year resolution pledges are on the horizon! January will be with us very soon and it is the official month for detox after the Christmas eating sessions. A fabulous way of becoming healthier is to go plant based. It is also better for the environment and kinder to animals.

3 Valley Vegans will be hosting events throughout January to help people who have an interest in this healthier lifestyle. There will be meet-ups, talks, workshops and films to help empower you. There will be people on hand and over the phone to help with any questions you may have.

First event: ‘Veganuary‘ film and talk night

1 Nov: World Vegan Month Todmorden market stall, can you help?

It will be World Vegan Month soon! 3 Valley Vegans are hosting a stall on Todmorden open air market on Thursday, 1 November. (That’s World Vegan Day, within World Vegan Month.)

The information stall will be a celebration of veganism and will promote all things vegan. We will provide information about how and why to go vegan and where to buy and eat vegan food in the area. There will be vegan recipes demonstrated and written down for people to take away and free samples of vegan food for people to try.  If anyone would like to help out either by baking or creating some food samples to give away or by helping out on the stall then please contact Hilary on hils46@yahoo.co.uk. Even a few hours would be wonderful.
