Isle of Wight Vegetarians & Vegans
Isle of Wight Vegetarians & Vegans is a very informal group that aims to enjoy life and at the same time promote vegan and vegetarian living. We originated as the Isle of Wight Vegetarian Society back in 1976 and some of the founder members are amongst our number today. At present we have members spanning all age ranges and walks of life.
We get together occasionally for social and business meetings - we always make time for refreshments and socialising as well. We also try to meet occasionally at various locations across the Island for other activities, such as walks and, in the summer, barbecues or picnics.
We are happy to offer general help and advice on adopting a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. We also have a range of free literature available and our own very popular recipe books for sale, "Meals Without Squeals" and its sequel 'More Meals Without Squeals' - see here.
We support national activities and campaigns - such as National Vegetarian Week, promoted by the Vegetarian Society (UK) - and donate funds to various appropriate charities and campaigns.
There is no formal membership or subscription to Isle of Wight Vegetarians & Vegans – all are welcome to participate. The IWVV Update is available by e-mail or post by registering with us – see here.
