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 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!
