Oxford Vegans: future of group

E-mail sent by Rich Sleight, Thursday, 13th August 2015 @ 10:41pm

Hi All
I hope you are well.

This is email is to ask if anyone would like to become the manager of this email group.

'Managing' the group could mean anything really, it would be up to you or a group of people, to decide what to do with the email list.
Examples are:
a) send around a monthly or quarterly newsletter listing items of interest or events.
b) organising a few events be they film screenings or socials or activist events.
c) merging the email list (around 200 poeple) with another group similar to the Oxford Vegans, for example Oxford Students For Animals group.

This was primarily started as a student group, but also open to anyone resident in Oxford.

I have now moved away from Oxford but realise that people are still signing up to this group. I am not the official manager but did end up organising a lot of events and writing newsletters. I feel it would be a shame to let the group go but if noone wants to manage/organise anything I feel the best thing to do will be to delete the group if possible or direct people to an alternative place to find information about being vegan in Oxford.

There is also the Oxford Vegans Facebook Page as well as the Oxford Vegetarians and Vegans Meetup.com group.

I hope the newsletter and events were helpful to people when the group was more active.

If you are interested or have any ideas please let me know.

Thank you

Richard

Hi All

Oxford vegan drinks - 19th August

http://www.meetup.com/Oxford-Vegetarian-and-Vegan-Eat-Up-Meetup/events/200677062/

Social drinks kind of thing, at The Star pub, on 21 Rectory Road, oxford.

The star is a lovely pub. Come at 7.30pm for drinks. There is also the option that you can bring food to the pub, so any takeaway from Cowley Rd is an option. Board games are also there if you want play those.

For vegan drinks info check out http://www.vegansociety.com/lifestyle/food/drinks/ and http://www.barnivore.com/

If this is popular hopefully it can become a monthly event, perhaps the 3rd Tuesday of every month?

London Vegan festival - Sunday 17th August

Vegan dinner and quiz

Our monthly Quiz Team is the second Sunday of every month.

We have a regular Oxford Vegans team at the Gardeners Arms pub quiz. Turn up at 7.30pm to eat food, and 8.30pm for the quiz, or anytime actually just to say hi and have a drink! The Quiz Master is always on form with a special theme each week. We regularly have 2 teams for this quiz now. All newcomers always welcome. It is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, all for fun and no skills in quizzes are required either (otherwise I would not be going)!

The Gardeners Arms is a veggie and vegan pub in Jericho, and it even has vegan puddings!
Here is a link to the google map to find the pub http://g.co/maps/99btm

Someone will have an Oxford Vegans sign on a table. If you cannot find us then please ask the bar staff and they will point us out. 

Come for the a drink only, or just a meal, or just the quiz. We regularly now have 2 teams as this is a popular event, and many also just come for the food, drink , and chat before.

Thank you
 

Any other ideas?

If anyone would like to organise events - film screenings, shared food meetings, picnics, film outings, animal sanctuary outings, information or food stalls around the city or any other ideas -  then please contact myself or just suggest on facebook or the meetup group (remembering to label it as a vegan event). There will definitely be a few people interested as our group on facebook has grown to over 300 now!

Oxford Vegan drinks 18th Tuesday

Hi All

Oxford vegan drinks - 18th March

http://www.meetup.com/Oxford-Vegetarian-and-Vegan-Eat-Up-Meetup/events/170843132/

There is a new event, Oxford Vegan drinks on Tuesday March 18th at 7.30pm. Meetng at the Three Goats Heads pub in the centre of town. There is no food organised, but we thought it would be good just to go for a drink with no table bookings. If popular maybe we could visit a different place each month.

For vegan drinks info check out http://www.vegansociety.com/lifestyle/food/drinks/ and http://www.barnivore.com/

At the moment if you look on the meetup group we have a regular quiz every month, and a Games night every month at Thirsty Meeples. If you would like to get involved to share vegan information within Oxford, have any ideas such as films to show, or information stalls, foodie outings etc please do get in touch or come to an event and talk about it. :)
