Bath Vegan Fayre 2010 report
The Bath Vegan Fayre 2010: “Fayre Play”
Campaigners and volunteers with Bath Animal Action are pleased to announce that the Bath Vegan Fayre 2010 event went swimmingly on Saturday the 4th September, with over 150 happy punters passing through the doors.
Held at Manvers Street Baptist Church in the city centre, a moment’s walk from the train and bus stations, the event lasted from 12 til 4pm. Otherwise, the second annual free food event followed much the same pattern as the previous year – with a dazzling array of steaming soups, chillies, rice dishes and lovingly-tended vegetable delicacies filling the bowls of queues of hungry fayre-goers, alongside a mouth-watering spread of cakes, cookies, snacks and ethnic desserts. The tea and fruit juices flowed like never before, whilst the tables were filled with relaxed conversation and ingested education. As well as the over-burdened information tables (with everything from nutrition, environmental ethics, recipes, animal rights, medical science and updates for campaigns against zoos, hunters, foie gras outlets and animal-testing laboratories), free samples table, reading corner and children’s area, there was also a prize raffle – the cause of some excitement. By the end of the day, many a happy visitor was heard singing the praises of the food, including the immortal words: “I had no idea vegan food could taste this good!”
Bath Animal Action would very much like to thank all the suppliers who kindly donated goods for the fayre-goers to sample, including Suma Wholefoods and their donation of Eco-Leaf range of washing liquid and cleaners.
