Thanks, But I can't seem to make the group without adding friends onto it?

I see what you mean now.
Yeah, I think you need to add at least one person who's already a friend to start with.

Yup - I think that's right, I made another Facebook account (not my personal one) so that there was a kind of faceless 'admin' account that could post and could feed in the RSS news feed.

So if you do that you can 'friend' those 2 accounts (admin & personal) and then use them as the 2 needed to start. In our group people ask to join after that.

here's our running club

Just an update that the People's Kitchen I mentioned is proving really popular, with 26 bookings already. Some of these are vegans who have just moved to the area and some are green activisty people who are interested in eating more vegan food. We haven't even publicised it much yet, so these are word-of-mouth bookings. I recommend this as a way to bring people together.

EDIT - Now up to 50 bookings!

Congrats Hiking Fox! :D


I'm having the problem of not being able to get my page to come up when I search. Annoying!

It is a great way of meeting new people and turning others vegan. I started a Facebook page for my local area (Coventry) just over a year ago and we now have 44 FB members and others through the new website. We organise meals out, breakfast mornings, a weekly run, mountain and road biking days, hillwalking events, camping trips, drinking sessions, everything! I can honestly say that the last year has been the best of my life, some of the people I have met have become my best friends, and knowing that you are making it easier to help people to go vegan by having a support group available is just great. Good luck with it!
