Animal Rescue Workday (Kirkby)

Kirkby Pet Welfare is a small animal shelter attempting to tackle the desperate task of rescuing and re-homing unwanted rabbits, hamsters and other small rodents, often bred indiscriminately by the pet trade.

Nottingham Animal Rights seeks volunteers for regular workdays. It is really rewarding work, because we can all do a little to make a big difference. The dogs at Pet Welfare are only walked once or twice a week so this is an easy and fun job that can make a positive impact on their lives. Transport may be available from Beeston or Nottingham – call Lee on 07599 282851.

The shelter is based on Celia’s back yard. There are more than 130 hutches of all different shapes and sizes, rabbit runs, a chicken pen, small animal shed and various sheds for storage.

Could you offer us a few hours of your time to help with DIY, feeding or cleaning?

We are a small shelter who rely totally on volunteers, and we are in desperate need of more help. You don’t need any special skills, just a great love of caring for animals. Whatever time you can offer, we won’t say no! It is really rewarding work, because we can all do a little to make a big difference to these animals lives.

People’s Kitchen, Nottingham

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 Green Festival 2018

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 Nottingham 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 now to be joined by 10 other vegan caterers and other artisan food producers, supporting the events’ new vegan ethos and building on a thirty+ year meat-free policy.

The Green Festival continues to break all records in terms of visitors & stalls.

This will be the 26th Nottingham Green Festival and with your support it will be even bigger & better in 2018.

You are therefore encouraged to support the regular fundraising events and join in with the planning group meetings.

Nottingham Hackspace

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

Brinsley Animal Rescue Summer Open Day 2018

Our Summer open day in 2018 will be held on Sunday 12th August. More details to follow.

Nottingham Greyhound Demo

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.
