Vegan Festival of Britain 2017 logoAnimal Aid are celebrating their 40th anniversary with the Vegan Festival of Britain, running 20 May to 10 June 2017. 3 Valley Vegans are joining in by hosting a stall on Todmorden open air market on Thursday, 1 June.

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 lots of vegan recipes 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 Elizabeth on elizabethking@talktalk.net

14 Apr Good Friday walk to Pace Egg Play(s) in #Heptonstall

A couple of years ago, 3 Valley Vegans ended a great walk at the Pace Egg Play(s) in Heptonstall.  We’re going to do it again this year but this time our walk will start in Todmorden.  It will take us around 3 hours to walk the 9 km (5.5 miles) route to Heptonstall and, if we arrive on time, we will be able to watch the Calder High School version of the play at 3pm and the Heptonstall Players’ version at 4pm.  The walk will afford some great views and will pass some lovely places as well as working farms where animals do not live the kind of lives that vegans wish for them.  The Pace Egg plays  (see https://heptonstall.org/pace-egg-2/ to learn more) are a Good Friday tradition and it is great fun to be part of the large and interactive audience.  

  • 🕦 Time & date: Good Friday, 14th April 2017 before 11:30 am as we will leave promptly at that time.
  • 🚏 Meeting place: The bus stop on the opposite side of the road to the Shell garage on Halifax Road, Todmorden (heading out of Todmorden towards Halifax, the bus stop is on the left 100m before the left turn to Hallroyd Road). 
  • 👞 Equipment: The walk could well cross muddy and slippery terrain and so waterproof walking boots and suitable clothing are a must.  Maybe walking sticks too. 
  • 😬 Severity: The 9 km walk will involve climbs totalling 516m and the highest point will be 326m above sea level. (We will have started at 124m above sea level.)  
  • 🍞 Food: Please bring only vegan food to eat for lunch and/or during the walk.  That’s the rule for 3VV walks.
  • 🚌 Getting home afterwards: those returning to Todmorden can either do it on foot again following a different route on the same side of the valley (north) or take a bus.  
  • 📧 Booking: Please email Rob if you would like to attend: forgivenleaf@mac.com

Hooray hooray.  No chicken suffers in the Pace Egg play.

“What is The Real Junk Food Project Calderdale?”
The Real Junk Food Project Calderdale aims to reduce unnecessary food waste and the climatic impacts of this by salvaging food thrown away by supermarkets and other retailers and transforming it into nutritionally balanced meals. All meals are served on a ‘pay as you feel’ basis.

Remember that due to the nature of the operation the food may run out before the end of the evening. So please try to come on time, but we can always find a take away if needs be – it’s about the social element as much as anything else!

Spaces are very limited! If you are coming, please email tech@3valleyvegns.org.uk by Sunday evening.
