We will be using Zoom Video Conferencing to host this panel session. After registering, we will send you a link to use when the panel begins, and a password. You will need a computer or phone with speakers/headphones and an internet connection (Wi-Fi or wired network is best).
We recommend you prepare in advance by installing the ‘Zoom Client for Meetings’ app on your PC or Mac, or ‘ZOOM Cloud Meetings’ app for Android, or iOS or Kindle Fire. If you cannot install applications, you can use the web browser instead.
The video above explains the basics of using Zoom for the first time. Our session will also ask you to enter a password when you connect (not mentioned in the video).
After you connect to the session, you will be invited to join with your webcam; this is optional, you do not need to share your face on video.
When you are in the session, you will be invited to connect with computer audio; this means that you will use your computer or phone’s speakers/headphones and microphone to hear everyone. The other option is to dial into the Zoom switchboard on your telephone (we do not recommend this).
When you connect with computer audio, your microphone will be muted. We request that everyone in the session mute their microphone unless the Chair invites them to speak. This will help us to keep order and avoid unnecessary background noise.
Update 1: Following Government advice, we have to cancel this event, sadly.
Twice before, 3 Valley Vegans ended a great walk at the Pace Egg Play(s) in Heptonstall. We’re going to do it again this year and 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 are a Good Friday tradition and it is great fun to be part of the large and interactive audience. (Final details TBC)
🕦 Time & date: Good Friday, 10th April 2020 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.
UPDATE: Due to recent weather events, we have cancelled our ‘Down with Dairy’ activism in Hebden Bridge.
Street activism helping people to go dairy free. We’re going to hand out free samples of dairy alternatives and give out leaflets. We might wear some masks too. If anyone wants to help with the technology we might show video footage too! See the Surge website for more information about the realities of dairy.
If the weather is awful then we might just hand out leaflets and shorten the event.
Plant-basing the future: Your diet for our planet
featuring a guest speaker from Extinction Rebellion (XR)
Two hours, one evening:
Topical film excerpts
Workshop and talk
Children age 11+ welcome
Come and explore with us the climate change and other environmental impacts of diets based on meat, fish and dairy. We’ll also discuss claims that some forms of animal-based agriculture are still compatible with climate change mitigation. Of particular interest to people who tried Veganuary.
Following our Christmas Faves Cookery Demo, 3 Valley Vegans will set up a stall in St George’s Square, Hebden Bridge on Saturday, 7 December. We will share some of our usual supportive information, focused on the ‘Bring peace to all this Christmas‘ message from Viva!, particularly for turkeys. Thanks to Sacred Space and Compassion in World Farming.
If you are able to help out for a few hours, please let us know!
