Mega Charity Booksale by ExLibris

Annual booksale in aid of local charities:

Host Nottingham support asylum seekers and refugees in Nottingham

We R Here : “Many people experience significant traumatic life events such as domestic violence, grief, loss and bereavement. We are here to bring support to the whole family including carers.”

Our rescued books include: new, genre, unusual, modern and classic fiction; every non-fiction subject under the sun; books on leisure interests such as gardening, crafts, cake decoration & cookery; hardbacks and paperbacks; scarce/collectable books at lower prices than online; lots of children’s books; and the odd really weird book that you wouldn’t believe could, or maybe should, exist. There are also DVDs and handmade bags.
We always have low prices (starting at 10p), to make books accessible to everyone. Even our collectable or scarce books are priced more cheaply than online.

Children may ride the “ExLibris Express”.
You are invited to bring a tin of vegetarian food, to be donated to Netherfield food bank.

We will be asking for volunteers to: help carry heavy boxes of books; circulate the poster on social media; distribute leaflets through letterboxes and posters to shops/pubs/community centres etc; mind the back garden and be Toilet Monitors, etc. We’re getting older, and appreciate help more and more each year!

Thanks everybody for all your support the over the last previous 15 years. We hope we can re-home another load of books and support important local charities again this year.

Masky greetings.

Nottingham Vegan Markets – Vegan Traders Directory

The next fully vegan market in Nottingham is  Sherwood Vegan Market on Saturday 9th April. See their website for details of the 40+ stalls attending the February Market. Many of the traders are in a Sherwood Vegan Stallholders Group.

The next event by Nottingham based, vegan market organisers, Rainbow Monkey Events 🌈 is Chesterfield Vegan Market on Sunday 8 May.

Nottingham Vegan Market News

 

On 31st October, 2015, in advance of World Vegan Day, Sneinton Market held an event to showcase great tasting vegan food. Following this a monthly vegan market in Nottingham was launched on 5th December 2015. Sneinton Vegan Market became the established event to regularly celebrate and showcase great tasting vegan food and drink, crafts, animal rescues & other products/services. However it has sadly lost its way and is no longer in tune with the values of the vegan community.

Meanwhile there are many Nottingham vegan market traders that helped establish that market and deserve our continued support.

2022 sees a new era for Vegan Markets in Nottingham with West Bridgford Vegan Market on 1st Saturday Monthly and Sherwood Vegan Market moving to a larger venue from May.

About this event

Reverend Billy and The Stop Shopping Choir are a radical performance community who use the theatre of protest, spectacle and the sincere intensity of song to carry their message. They are Earth-loving urban activists who protect bees, oppose police brutality and create dramatic actions to inspire climate change activism.

Join them for a riot in the court,seeking justice for nature , a breathtaking, joyful, and heartbreaking show.Earthalujah!

Tickets are on a sliding scale – pay what you can afford

The Earth Riot Tour is like a cloudburst of melody and rhythm mixed with open conversation about the uprising of our physical world. At a turning point in our lives, as shock extinction accelerates, how do we live and how do we love?

After performances across the country, the exuberant troupe will reach COP26 International Conference for Climate Change with two shows in Glasgow. Whether COP26 will be so pleased to see them remains to be seen!

Sunday 11th 2003 : Reverend Billy’s Sunday Service

From Veggies Archive

The possibly insane but indisputably sublime Reverend Billy brought his war on consumerism from New York city to Nottingham. Mixing art with activism, and activism with entertainment the Reverend performed one of his comic ‘services’ at Broadway, appropriately enough, since the building was originally a chapel.

During the service, Reverend Billy conferred ‘sainthood’ in the Church of No Shopping on Veggies’ Co-operative members Pat & Ronny.

Nottingham COP26 Coalition Rally. The Forest – Market Square

On 6 November 2021, as world leaders meet in Glasgow for the COP26 Global Climate Summit, towns and cities across the world will take to the streets demanding global climate justice.

In Nottingham we will be assembling at the Forest Recreation Ground at 1pm, marching down Mansfield Road at 2pm and rallying in the Market Square at 3pm.

Join us for #FoodByVeggies.

 


We are living through a period of multiple breaking points – from climate to covid to racism. We know that these crises not only overlap, but share the same cause. 
While no one can escape the impacts of these crises, those who have done least to cause them suffer the most. Across the world, the poorest people and communities of colour are too often those bearing the brunt of the climate crisis. From coastal villages in Norfolk whose sea-defenses are eroding faster than ever, to people living by the Niger Delta rivers blackened by oil spillage.

We are calling for:

NO MORE COOKING. THE BOOKS: No To Fossil Fuels, Net-zero And False Solutions!
– Fight For 1.5
– We Need Real Zero, Not Net Zero
– Keep It In The Ground: No New Fossil Fuel Investments Or Infrastructure
– Reject False Solutions: No To Carbon Markets And Risky And Unproven Technologies

REWIRE THE SYSTEM: Start The Justice Transition Now!
– Start The Justice Transition

GLOBAL CLIMATE JUSTICE: Reparations And Redistribution To The Global South!
– Fair share of effort from all rich countries
– Cancel the debts of Global South by all creditors
– Grant-based climate finance for the Global South
– Reparations for the loss and damage already happening in the Global South

Veggies Community Food Hub, Wednesdays at the Sumac Centre

At the beginning of the first lockdown we converted Sumac Centre into a hub for the distribution of foods around our community, to open our food stores for those isolated at home or those that wish to distance themselves from the madness of Tesco & Asda (for many reasons)

We’ve crunched the 800+ rows of our stock control spreadsheet and gotten it down to 190 of the more popular items that we can sell.

Please look at the stock list and order form and let us know what you need. The  list includes  #organic & #glutenfree tags. We set prices below recommended retail prices. We aim to be cheaper than supermarkets, but as we stock ethically sourced, wholefood, fairtrade & organic products, the broken food system  unfortunately can make these more expensive .

You can place your orders by email to sales@veggies.org.uk, either simply typed or by downloading, filling in & attaching the form.

Goods can also be requested & collected from Sumac Centre between 12 & 3pm on Sundays and Wednesdays.

You are encouraged to collect for isolated, at-risk, frail or elderly friends and neighbours too.

When collecting from Sumac you are encouraged to bring containers, jars & bottles. Bottles & jars are essential for cleaning materials that are dispensed from bulk supplies. (Extra empty bottles are welcome for those without).

Many items come from bulk supplies. Cleaning materials & liquid foods may be dispensed in jars & bottles. Empty bottles are welcome to maintain our supply.
 
We aim to stock ethically sourced, wholefood, fairtrade & organic products which, due to the broken food system, may be more expensive than cheap supermarket foods.
 
We also are redistributing donated foods and foods from businesses that have had to close. If you have surplus foods to share, please contact us.
 
Everything that we stock is vegan and therefore suitable for most dietary, cultural & religious preferences. Gluten free items are also available.

Map of 1 mile radius of Veggies & Sumac CentreWe are concentrating on Forest Fields (NG7-6) & New Basford (NG7-7).  Local Mutual Aid Networks may be able to help if you need delivery further afield.

Please join our Food Hub group on facebook updates, new products, delivery/collection details etc, or see details on the product list, our Food Hub page or this Facebook post.

Also on Sundays.
