Maybe it's time you made a change in your life. Fishtank! I really wanna go to their New Years thing, an dI normally say in on New Years. Not that I'm likely to make it up to Durham, though.

I won't be able to make that either, I'll probably be with my family in Lincolnshire...

Looks like we're having a party at ours this year (a joint with house-warming as the final housemate will move in mid-Dec). Maaaaan, I gotta make it to Durham some day. I hear there are good burritos...

Whaaaaaaat!? I live in Durham and was unaware there was vegan/veggie community here!?

Also jumping bean cafe has just opened opposite the fishtank and they serve vegan cakes, sandwiches and have soya milk for their coffee.

It's a reasonably new student society, roughly three years old now. If you send me your email address in a PM, I'll put you on the mailing list smiley.gif

Alternatively, some of us are probably going to meet at the Jumping Bean on Wednesday afternoon, you're welcome to join us. I'm probably going to put some posters up in there, too.



Also, it doesn't matter if you're not a student at the university (as far as I'm concerned, anyway).

Hi Elina!

I'm moving to Kent in a few months for work, so I might bug you about good places to eat/shop when that happens tongue3.gif

Hi Naomi, welcome to VB! hi.gif

I'm probably moving to relatively near your area in a couple of months when I graduate from university - what's it like being a veggie in your neck of the woods? smiley.gif

Hello VeggieBoards,

Technically this is hello again. I said hello here about six years ago and then promptly disappeared. I'll give it another try, though.

My name is Ryan. I am currently working and living (mostly working) in Manchester.

I've been a vegetarian since 1998 and vegan since 2005. I cannot recall the dates I turned so I don't know when to celebrate my vegan anniversary.

I think I am technically known as a vegweb refugee. I used to love that place but all the talkative people disappeared during the virus purges.

So I find myself looking for an online veggie community replacement - without having to rely on Facebook.

Hello and hopefully I will get past 6 posts this time.

Sincerely,
Ryan

Thanks for the welcome back :-) Does this thank you message reply constitute an official post in the record breaking challenge that I now feel obliged to partake in?

I've just been browsing through the forums. There's a great feel to this site (looks good, anyway).

I do miss the golden days of vegweb with the random kitchen sink style posts like open letters. But that's the last time I'll mention vegweb on here.

Oh I think your post qualifies for the overall challenge :-D

 

I wasn't around in the days of Vegweb, I only moved to vegetarian and then vegan this year.  Prior to that I (technically) formed part of the "Mmmmm, bacon" gang :)

Oh awesome, I'd love to work in an animal rescue centre, but we don't really have any near where I live and I'm not 100% sure what it would involve, what qualifications I'd need etc.

Most animal rescue centres would probably jump at the chance to have a volunteer.smiley.gif I don't know if the volunteering leads to paid work often but I bet your local centre would love you to contact them.

I may add not in a zoo or research facility but in a sactuary in Africa or one in the western world for 'retired' lab chimps.
