Although we have been taking something of a break from business as usual at 3 Valley Vegans we thought it would be good to have a pre-Christmas mini-newsletter.
For one thing, it gives us a great excuse to share these magnificent photos of Joey the turkey. Joey lives with the wonderful people from Sacred Space who, as well as delivering fantastic food at their café in Albert Street, Hebden Bridge run a bird sanctuary from their home. They are currently fund-raising to buy some land so they can expand their excellent work. If you’d like to send them a Christmas present to support their efforts, please go to their GoFundMe page.
Please note that our Facebook page and Facebook group remain active. Also, Liz has updated our eating out guide. If you have any changes or additions to make to the eating out guide, please let us know by social media or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Three issues uppermost in many minds at the moment are Christmas, Covid and climate change. The latter has unfortunately taken something of a back seat this year, but the Prime Minister has just announced challenging new targets on UK emissions. We await details on what policies will be put into place to meet the targets, and it remains to be seen whether the critical role of animal agriculture in driving climate change will feature in the government’s plans.
Coming up in this Newsletter we have:
- News: good and bad
- Blog: Viva! campaign to protect against future pandemics
- Vegan Society response to the Covid-19 vaccine
- Meet a member: Anne Taylor
- Christmas recipe
