ANNOUNCEMENT

It's with some sadness that we can confirm that the Birmingham Vegetarians and Vegans meeting on July 25th will be the last one.

Over the past couple of years meeting attendance has dwindled and the committee feels it's time to call it a day. In addition, managing the schedule, confirming speakers, organising the meeting room and equipment, representing the BVV at events, compiling the newsletter, managing post and emails and updating social media accounts are a...ll tasks undertaken by volunteers, and without new people to replace committee members who wish to retire these jobs simply can't be done.

Barbara and Harry started the group eleven years ago. Since then, the UK's vegan population has increased by a massive 350% to over half a million and is still growing! There seems to be a new vegetarian or vegan eatery in Birmingham every month – even a vegan pie shop in Stirchley! – lots of vegan beer around and new social groups all over the Midlands celebrating all things plant-based. Therefore we like to think that the BVV's job is done and we can say goodbye with a hint of satisfaction

However, while the monthly meetings won't continue, Harry will carry on with his group walks around the Midlands, which are a great way to socialise with other vegetarians and vegans, see some of our amazing countryside and maybe stop at a pub or two. Harry will use this Facebook (and connected Twitter) account to promote the walks, and please do continue to share information on new veggie happenings in Birmingham here – we have 2,700 people to connect with!

We'd like to say a massive THANK YOU to Harry and Barbara for all their hard work founding and running the group (even after they'd officially stepped down from the committee!). We know it's hugely appreciated by everyone who has been part of the BVV now and in the past. And, on that note, another big thank you goes to all of our committee members, volunteers, speakers and attendees past and present.

Please join us for the final Birmingham Vegetarians and Vegans meeting tomorrow (July 25th), a talk on Deep Ecology and George Monbiot’s Ferral from Martin Doyle and Karen Parham. As always, meetings are held at the Warehouse (Birmingham Friends of the Earth), 54-57 Allison Street, Digbeth, Birmingham, B5 5TH – please use the side entrance to the building, which is on Shaws Passage. Prior to the meeting you can eat at the Warehouse Cafe upstairs (use front entrance for the café). The meeting room opens at 7pm, meetings start at 7:30pm. The entry fee is £2, concessions are free.
