Bearwood Community Vegan Market

Vegan Vybe events emphasize not only trade, such as vegan food, skincare, gifts, candles, cards, jewellery, plants and even bikes etc, but also on community engagement, social cohesion and challenging isolation – collaborating with community organisations, local artists and small business owners and creating a platform to layer in educational workshops, family activities and of course to share the friendly Vegan Vybe.

Visit the Bearwood Community Vegan Market on the Second Sunday of every month to support this ethical movement.

See also the Kings Heath & Moseley Community Vegan Market on the last Sunday of every month and Handsworth Community Vegan Market on the 3rd Saturday of each month.

This is an open meeting to any one who lives in Forest Fields, New Basford, Carrington and surrounding areas. The Residents Association plans the Stuff of Life Festival on Hedley Villas Park, the Winter Gathering in December & other activities.

The purpose of the Residents Association is to also offer people the space to share community concerns, build community relationships and offer informal friendship as people who live in the same neighbourhoods.

Having Sumac as an accessible  venue will I hope encourage more local people to come along.

There will be tea and cake and samosas!

Community Climate Action Networking Event

An opportunity for community groups in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Derby focused on tackling climate change and other environmental problems to meet to share their projects, successes, struggles and ideas. There will also be workshop focused on creating and maintaining a healthy culture within groups.

The event will begin with a bring and share lunch – please bring something to share (let us know if you have any dietary requirements). NB: Sumac’s kitchen is strictly vegan, but vegetarian food can be brought into the room we are meeting in, so long as it doesn’t go into the kitchen.

If you are part of a community group and would like to bring a short workshop/talk about a project you are running/have run please get in touch. Otherwise, come and be inspired.

We are running a similar event in Chesterfield on 23rd March. You are welcome to attend whichever event is more convenient for you, regardless of which county you live in.

Skills Exchange Timebank Winter Social

Friday 4th January 2019, 7pm- 10.30pm

We are a time bank, centred on the NG7 area of Nottingham. Members carry out jobs for each other (non-professionally) in exchange for Time Credits rather than money – one credit for one hour’s work. Examples of such jobs include: transporting people and goods, massage, IT repairs, gardening and befriending.

We also hold monthly meetings to organise our activities, and regular social events which help bring us together. We network with other community groups and use Timebanking UK software for our administration.  Groups such as the Sumac can become group members.

The Winter Social is a Members and friends event. Extra visitors are welcome. There will be a veggie buffet (mostly vegan), a quiz and a tomboa.

Details from Skills Exchange Timebank  – Rosie Jarrett: 07984 125239, skillsexchangeng@gmail.com and Moby Farrands.
