Oxford Vegans: Oxford Vegan Festival!!!!!

E-mail sent by Rich Sleight, Thursday, 2nd February 2017 @ 7:16pm

Hi All
I hope you are well.
Oxford Vegan Festival - 25th March 2017
I know, right. An actual vegan festival in Oxford!

The OXFORD VEGAN FESTIVAL is coming to the KASSAM STADIUM on SUNDAY 25TH MARCH 2017. Organised by the wonderful Farplace Animal Rescue. Check out the website - https://www.oxfordveganfestival.com/ You can volunteer, or have a stall there, or just attend - the festival is open from 10.30am-5pm and is cheap as vegetable oil freid chips at £3 with kids coming free. 

The Festival is organised by Farplace Animal Rescue - a UK animal rescue who help specialist cases like FIV+ cats and have helped many such cases in need from across the UK. They help animals from all over the UK and believe promoting veganism helps as many animals as direct rescue work. All the profits from the festival will directly help animals. 

I dare say someone could organise a meetup.com event so everyone can go together.

Email list etc
 

I am no longer living in Oxford although I do tend to come back regularly and I might even come to the festival above. I am now in amazing Bristol. 

If someone wants to take on this group, making the odd event, sending out a random newsletter then please email richsleight [at]gmail.com Ben is officially the admin but I don't know where he is.

Otherwise please be aware that this email list is going to be a bit quiet. I'd recommend joining the meetup group or facebook group listed below. 

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

Thank you and stay amazing :).

Oxford Vegans: Brrokes event, vegan interviewing, and future of group

E-mail sent by Rich Sleight, Monday, 26th October 2015 @ 3:26pm

Hi All
I hope you are well.

The group has received the following email about an event and an opportunity to be interviewed as a vegan.

Subject: A educational vegan event at Oxford Brookes University.

Dear Sir/Madam,
My name is Jeffrey, I am a final year student and studying Hospitality Management at Oxford Brookes University. We are currently arranging a Vegan Event in 17 March 2016 at Oxford Brookes Restaurant http://restaurant.business.brookes.ac.uk/. We sincerely would like to invite vegan to an interview and take a short video in order to share about their veganism experience & lifestyle (such as the reasons why they became vegan; what had been changed after; what do they think about being vegan & may be some perspective about vegan trends in future). As our event aims to educate and inspire people to become a vegan. We would be truly appreciated if you could spread these words to people may be interested and the vegan group as well. There will be a lovely gift to be given from us for our each interviewee. We are looking forward to hearing from you. Here is my contact detail, please free feel to contact. Email: 12042237@brookes.ac.uk.

Best Wishes

Jeffrey

If anyone would like to get involved with this email group please let me know.

This was primarily started as a student group, but also open to anyone resident in Oxford. There is a website and an email list of about 200 people. It is useful to update people about all things vegan in Oxford via a newsletter as well as organising events like a meal, trip out, talks or some activism.

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.

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

Thank you and stay wonderful everyone :).

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
