Meet Vegans and Vegetarians From Around The World
A group for all veg*ns in, or visiting, Yorkshire (or areas nearby, e.g. Humberside, Peak District, N. Derbyshire, N. Notts, Lincs). Where veg*n issues can be discussed and local veg*n businesses, groups and events can be promoted. :-)
Please don't forget to join the UK and Ireland group too!
Also see Veggies Animal Rights, Animal Aid and Happy Cow calendars and the Vegan Village noticeboard for events listings and other things of interest. And check the links below for other smaller social and/or activist activities organised by your local group.
Eating Out and Shopping
HappyCow - Scroll down for Yorkshire and Humberside listings, if you see anything missing or needing amending please update the listing. VeggiePlaces is similar, though also lists veg friendly hotels, type in Yorkshire or specific place for results. LeedsVeg has good information about places to eat in Yorks, Lancs, Lincs and Derbyshire. There's a new Veggie Guide to the North. For details of lots more veg*n friendly places in Sheffield see here. Also see EthicalCommunity (created by Liam from Leeds), a marketplace to help people buy and sell ethical, vegan and organic products online.
