    Vegetarian Society Members E-Newsletter – an abridged version for the boards.

    Join our campaign for better veggie options

    Tired of seeing fish marked as the ‘vegetarian option’ when eating out? Sick of being served Parmesan with your veggie dish? Never sure whether your cheesecake is full of gelatine?
    Help us educate caterers by ordering your wallet-sized cards that challenge the common view that fish, Parmesan and meals containing gelatine are vegetarian. Just pop them in your wallet and leave them on the table the next time a restaurant needs some veggie advice.

    Just send an email to [email protected] with your name and membership number (if known) to request your campaign cards.

    In the news: Brian May’s love for animals

    Brian May, guitarist with the band Queen, has this week spoken to the media about his love for animals.

    Having turned his estate in Surrey into a wildlife refuge – which looks after hedgehogs, badgers and owls – May, a vegetarian, went on to say that:

    “When I’m gone, people will no doubt remember me for Queen, but I would much rather be remembered for attempting to change the way we treat our fellow creatures.” – Go Brian!

    According to most of those charts it seems as though the numbers have been dropping. However, I’m sure there will be a comeback this year and the years to come since the public health and obesity crisis has been all over the various medias as of late. I’ve also seen more veg events popping up in the US as well as the UK so that’s good news.

    I’ve always wanted to visit the UK, but the lack of funds and acquaintances (none and none) have held me back. I love the scenery though.

    Depending where you look, between 2 and 4 per cent of the UK are vegetarian.

    Looks well organized. Is there a substantial percentage of vegetarians in the UK? I already know from that the word was created there but I was wondering about the quantity in the country overall.
