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.
Join us in the courtyard at Primary on the second Sunday of every month for great local food, independent traders, arts, crafts and more!

“We are not blocking the traffic – We are Traffic!”
Critical Mass is for everyone who rides a bike in Nottingham.
Nottingham Critical Mass is a mass cycle ride, with no particular route, except where we want to go, that will happen on the last Friday of every month.
“Meet at 6 to leave at 6.30” by the Market Square bike stands (by tram lines at opposite end of square from council house) to enjoy a fun and sociable bike ride.
Expect Samosas for Social Change c/o Veggies (help welcome)
Veggies archive info.
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.
Nottingham “Vegan Market” returns on Sunday 19th November 2017. Note that this is in addition to Nottingham’s Sneinton Vegan Market on first Saturday of every month and the all-vegan Nottingham Green Festival on 17th September 2017.
Times and venue to be confirmed (as at Feb’17) – details may be similar to the 2016 event at Nottingham Conference Centre.
Brinsley Animal Rescue are short of volunteers during the Winter – fence building, staining, aviary building, mucking out, rabbit run building and more. Call Brinsley first to check arrangements. You can go by Rainbow 1 bus from Nottingham Victoria Bus station or Upper Parliament St (towards Eastwood/Alfreton). Ask for the Moor Road stop in Brinsley, by the fish&chip shop.
On alternate Saturdays transport may be available from Beeston or Nottingham – call Lee 07599 282851, but any other time is good too.
Brinsley Animal Rescue is a not for profit organisation dedicated to caring for animals. Our primary mission is to relieve the suffering of animals and birds. Many of the animals that come to us are simply ’surplus to requirements’ from the meat, dairy and egg industry. Because such animals are deemed unprofitable then it is our aim to take them on and find them loving homes in which they can enjoy the retirement they deserve.
