There is a bank holiday Monday and the possibility to stay on and tour Newcastle is open.

Emerging ideas – (1) Follow up from last gathering, (2) building a social centre, (3)  conflict and its resolution, and now “how to set up a social centre”?

There will be a social event on Saturday evening (Beer & music) Plus we are looking for ideas about a film programme Saturday for the Gathering  and even (Sunday for extended stayers).

The Star and shadow cinema – is a newly built social centre that doubles as a diy cinema, and does pretty much what other social centres do.

People’s Kitchen – Punk for the Homeless

Aprils P4TH is a special half-dayer – an eclective mix of punk attitude stuff (see poster for details) for street children. Proceeds to Compass Childrens Charity https://www.compasschildrenscharity.org.uk/ . Plus Peoples Kitchen/Vegan Grub, cheap bar, merch and raffle.

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.

On the last Saturday of each month People’s Kitchen is part of a fundraising evening for Punk for the Homeless, to raise awareness and money for Casa Alianza, a homeless charity for street children in Latin America.

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.

Brighton Vegan Beer & Cider Festival 2018

Brighton’s VEGAN festival is set to impress across three massive days here at the Cowley Club.
Due to popular demand and success and great feedback u, we decided to spoil Brighton’s vegan community with another .treat

There should be something for everyone. Ale, stouts, lagers, ciders, non alcoholic fermented drinks such as kombucha and kefir and obviously lots of herbal teas and coffees. Expect as well loads of other treats such as amazing and scrumptious plant based food, mountains of sinfully delicious cakes and obviously the infamous mouthwatering “pork” pies that went down like a storm and we couldn’t make enough of.

Be surprised by the wide selection of local beers and ciders made without any animal derived finings

Last time we had almost 30 different brews from 14 local producers, this time we might go even more crazy and spoil you for choice even mooooore.

For more updates/news follow VeGanBeerBN1 on Twitter

There will be as well great music and live bands and this time even some wild dancing on Saturday night, the rumour says. During the day we will be open to the public so you will have chance to check out what the “normally” “closed & weird looking” private member’s club / vegan community space is all about.

Our amazing radical library at the back should be open as well so why not sign up and borrow some rare thought provoking books, magazines, zones or DVDs.

On Sunday we will be serving scrumptious Sunday roast prepared by Brighton Hunt Saboteurs and raising money for they direct action activism.

With the veganism gaining popularity all over country and in Brighton especially, it would be a shame not to visit and find out more about Brighton’s first and only not for profit and entirely run by volunteers/ from day one, back in 2003 till now / 100% vegan community and grassroots hub and all the campaigns and action groups it supports.

Sumac Gardening

The Sumac garden has been turned into mini community allotments! The vegetable beds are divided up in to small plots. Individuals and groups can request this space to grow fruit, vegetables, herbs, and flowers for local wildlife.

Local food production is an important part of a low carbon society. We want to encourage, support and learn about food growing in Forest Fields. The Sumac garden is organic and laid out to show the best use of a small space. It is full of ideas you could use to grow your own.

There are still mini garden plots available in the Sumac garden for groups or individuals to grow their own fruit and vegetables. People are welcome to take on a space to grow over Winter veg or express an interest for next Spring!

If you are keen to get involved join us on Wednesday afternoons, or just pitch in on your own initiative.

See Tash’s “Sumac Garden – Food for the Future” Spring and Autumn photo reports.
