i've tried getting in touch with the local groups nearest me, and nobody has got back to me :( the vegan meetup site doesn't seem to have anything either.

how come i'm in the most veg*n friendly place in the UK, and i can't find any groups to socialise with?!!! :confused:

Nov 5th, 2004, 08:31 PM
wait a minute...i just checked the Vegan Society list of local contacts, and under West Sussex is someone in Norwich - last time i checked Norwich was in Norfolk!

What about B.A.R.C, Gorilla??

Nov 5th, 2004, 08:48 PM
i've emailed them and no reply from them as yet either. their website hasn't been updated for ages, so i don't know if they're still active ???

Nov 5th, 2004, 09:01 PM
:D Yes I emailed them recently and had a reply - maybe it's just you!!! :D

Nov 8th, 2004, 07:56 PM
it is annoying how there never seems to be a group in the area you live in :(

Nov 8th, 2004, 07:57 PM
Hi Kathers! Welcome! ;)

Look at it as an opportunity to start a group yourself, I am sure there are lots of other people in your area who want one but if no-one takes the initiative it won't happen.

Opps, that's me! The last meeting was yesterday at the George Pub, trafalgar st.
Next one in two weeks, so Mon 13 Dec 8.30 (hopefully more buggers than yesterday will show up!). Then every fortnight after.
Have a look at http://www.furfree.info/ as that's a local project too (in case you didn't guess I'm the "Mr P" who wrote about the Brighton demo).
We should be doing a stall in town Sat too I'll PM you my mobile, if you like & if you're about you could give me a ring & join in the fun :).
I must admit with college & everything I haven't updated the BARC site for a while now :(

Dec 1st, 2004, 06:48 AM
Oh, it's YOU!!
I e-mailed you looking for an old friend of mine, do you remember? :)

Dec 1st, 2004, 09:11 AM
As I remember I passed it on to someone who was about at the time, did you ever find them?

hey Pete no worries. it's just that i've emailed so many local people with no response, i didn't know if anything was happening. i will check out that website, thanks. would it be ok for me to pop along to the next meeting? :)

Are there any vegans or vegetarians on here in the area around Feltham, Kingston or Twickenham? Please post back if you live around there as we are moving from Harrow to Hampton very soon and would like some like-minded chums in the area. I intend to try and start some vegan social gatherings soon after we move there.

York Vegan added to the list. :)

Hmph - nothing in or near Newcastle.

This part of the world seems so backward sometimes...

Have your own easy to use Free Vegan Web site

Does your local veg*an group need a website? Don't you have the time or the knowledge to write one from scratch? Maybe you can't afford one. Is your current site too hard to update or does it lack the features you need? Then Local Veggie Web is for you, a website building and maintenance tool designed especially for those who run local veg*an groups. Free to use, nothing to install, many features and a doddle to use. See www.lvw.makessense.co.uk

Vegan / Animal Rights get together!

It's always good to socialise with like minded people,so on the first Friday of every month we plan to arrange a vegan meal/drinks in Brighton. If anyone would be interested please contact me. Would be great if you could come along!!! lisa.gooch1@btinternet.com ;)

First Ever Vegan Guide to Rutland Launched!

Rutland may be the UK's smallest county but it certainly isn't the UK's biggest nightmare as far as vegetarian and vegan catering goes! The first edition of Vegetarian Rutland and Surrounding Areas is an indispensable guide to cafés, restaurants, pubs, accommodation, health food shops and miscellaneous businesses in and around Rutland that cater for vegetarians and vegans.

The guide has been thoroughly researched and compiled by Sam McCreesh, a 15 year old vegan and Vegetarian Society youth contact for the region. It's available online at www.vegetarianrutland.co.uk and also in print by post

Information wanted for new veg*an guide to Yorkshire

I am putting together a veg*an guide to Yorkshire and would be grateful if anyone with vegan or veggie info on cafes, restaurants, shops, Bed and Breakfasts etc, from the Yorkshire area, could send info to me please, specific details are needed!

Advertising space available - just contact me! davidwbrown@onetel.com
