Sadly, deaths and serious injuries to dogs running on the tracks are relatively common, and the existence of a major track like Nottingham is responsible for the putting to death of about 500 greyhounds every year.
According to a Guardian article: “Greyhound tracks are closing and the industry isn’t doing enough to care for the thousands of dogs who face an uncertain fate”
Demo at 6.30pm at Daleside Road Roundabout, (the entrance to Nottingham Greyhound Stadium).
Probably every 2 weeks, but call 07703 031667 to confirm.
Date and details to be confirmed.
There’s no better way to start the festive season than at Brinsley Animal Rescue’s Christmas Open Day from 11am until 4pm.
The sanctuary is run by volunteers and on vegan values, rescuing unwanted pets, injured wildlife and farm animal victims of the meat and dairy industry.
Veggies and will be providing vegan catering at the Sanctuary and literature to help compassionate people make the connection between the animals they’re visiting at the rescue and those that end up on their plate.
Come and see the animals, meet Santa, see the many stalls. Admission is £1 for adults and free to children when accompanied by an adult. Dogs on leads welcome.

A delightful dish is cooked and served at the Sumac Cafe by a different volunteer team each Saturday. Food is served at 7pm until all gone. The Forest Fields Social Club Bar follows from 7.30.
Food at Sumac is vegan, so is suitable for all diets and all cultures (call to ensure gluten free or other special options).
People’s Kitchen provides a great opportunity for people wishing to show off their cooking skills (whether personally vegan or not) or for novice cooks seeking an opportunity to learn more. Please contact us for more details.
The Sumac Centre is home of Veggies Catering Campaign, so other vegan campaigners are often around for support and information.

The hackspace – a workshop and coworking space for the East Midlands, located close to the centre of Nottingham. It’s a place for makers and creatives to meet, learn, swap skills, and work on projects. It is run on a non-profit basis to serve your creative interests as a member.
Whether those are craft, electronics, woodwork, metalwork, knitting, programming, bike maintenance, prototyping, gadget modification, or even robotics, we have the kind of tools you don’t generally have room for at home, and the hackspace is constantly growing.
We hold open nights every Wednesday from 18:30
Nottingham Green Festival is organised by grass routes community based volunteers, with no statutory funding. The ethical standards and environmental / human / animal rights ethos of the event are long established, having evolved from the pre-history of the Nottm Peace Festival from which it has grown.
Nottingham’s own Green Festival provides the place for the whole family to learn, explore and try the latest in everything environmentally friendly and ethical, whilst also having lots of fun in the beautiful setting of the Arboretum Park.
Veggies has catered and campaigned at the Green Festival, and the Peace Festival before it, for our entire 33 year history. We were pleased to be joined at the 2016 event by 5 other vegan caterers and many other artisan food producers, supporting the events’ new vegan ethos and building on a thirty+ year meat-free policy.
Despite a break in 2014, the 2015 & 2016 Green Festivals broke all records in terms of visitors & stalls.
With your support it will be even bigger & better in 2017.
You are therefore encouraged to support the regular fundraising events and join in with the planning group meetings.
This will be the 25th Nottingham Green Festival so mark the date : 17-9-17
Find full details at www.nottmgreenfest.org.uk/, find us on facebook and follow us on twitter.
Stuff of Life is an event where local residents enjoy live music, art and craft stalls, children’s entertainers and a variety of food stalls, alongside Neds Acoustic Stage in The Factory.

It will also offer a platform to promote other local community groups and businesses.
Possible Peoples Kitchen after party / Green Festival warm up at the Sumac Centre.
