21 May: The Big Veggie Brunch, Todmorden (part of National Vegetarian Week)

Poster for The Big Veggie Brunch, part of National Vegetarian WeekIn our biggest event yet, 3 Valley Vegans is part of National Vegetarian Week 2016! The theme is “Celebrate your food, stories and traditions”. With the help of Incredible Edible Todmorden, we are doing this by hosting a free community brunch at Pollination Street, the community green space next to Todmorden market.

Come and test out vegan versions of traditional breakfast and brunch items, plus a few original ones. Make up your own plate combination and tell us what you think of it — you might be surprised! Twitter icon#NVW16

There will also be a children’s activity, where we will provide paper plates for children to draw their favourite brunch item of the day on. These will be attached to a wall and collected as a local art piece.

How can I help?

To make this event a real success we’ll need plenty of help. We need people to set up (from 9 am at least) and to pack away (from 2 pm)
We need people prepared to cook and hand out food, to work with the children, to give out info and generally to engage the public. If any of these tasks sounds like something you’d be able to help with, please email Hilary.

27 March: Walk in Todmorden, Stoodley Pike, Cragg Vale

Georgina will lead a walk on Sunday 27th March over the tops to Cragg Vale.

We will meet at Todmorden library at 11.00am and go up Longfield Rd towards the Shepherds Rest, then take the path up the moor towards Stoodley Pike. Then through the woods and over the tops and down to Cragg Vale. This is about 7 to 8 miles.

The Dusty Miller has taken up its carpets due to flooding, so the flag floor is perfect for walkers boots!

We will come back to Tod on the bus.

If you have any questions, please email Georgina on georgina@beanhole.co.uk. As usual with 3 Valley Vegans events, we ask if you are bringing food to make sure it is vegan please, out of respect for the other people at the event and in line with the aims of the group. Thank you!

1 November: Let’s go for a walk

Sunset Stoodley PikeFrom Todmorden up to Gaddings Dam (there is a beach there), on to Stoodley Pike and then down to Hebden Bridge.  About 4 hours including a stop for lunch.  Anyone who wants to can then extend the walk back to Todmorden along the canal, making it a circular walk of about 5 to 6 hours.

Don’t forget to bring your lunch with you and maybe you might want to share some as long as it is vegan.  Walking boots and suitable clothing are essential.

Start off at 10.30 am outside The Bear in Todmorden (Rochdale Road) on Sunday 1st November (new date!).

Please note that there will be some steep gradients to climb.

EDIT: Here are some photos from the event, taken by Rob.

COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret

is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organisations are too afraid to talk about it. As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet.
