We are holding a  Vegan Morning at the library on Saturday 1st February 10.30-12.30 There has been a lot of publicity during January about Vegan food and lifestyle - but is this all hype and come February everything will fade away?

There will be food to taste and free refreshments with plant-based kinds of milk to try.

 

Members of the Worcester Park Vegan Group will be on hand answering any queries you have.

On Saturday 1st Feb at  11am there will be a short presentation, "You are what you eat",  by Reema Ajmera in our community room about the health benefits of a vegan lifestyle.

HOT DRINKS - PLEASE READ!

 

From 2020 please could you bring your own cup with a lid if you would like a tea or coffee at the session.
