Solent Vegetarians & Vegans (SVV)

Who are we?

We're a UK group formed to encourage people to adopt a veggie or vegan lifestyle and to enjoy ourselves too! Our members come from the South Hampshire, East Dorset and South-East Wiltshire area, which includes Southampton, Romsey, Lymington, New Milton, Ringwood, Salisbury, Fareham, Gosport, Locks Heath, Portsmouth, Petersfield, Hedge End, Waterlooville, Eastleigh and Winchester.

For the benefit of anyone who doesn't live in the UK who has surfed their way onto this web site, the Solent is a geographical area in the South of England centred on the city of Southampton.

What we do and how to join

We have an occasional e-newsletter that we email to our members. Membership is completely free - Here's our sign-up form. Our e-newsletter has local veggie/vegan news and events, and new shops/cafés of interest to vegetarians and vegans.

We don't pass on your email address or other details to other members of the group (only the people running the group have access to it) or to any other group. We don't send out spam. If you want to be removed from this list, let us know, and we'll do that. You're unlikely to get an email from us more frequently than once a month, so there's no need to worry about getting an excessive number of emails from us! And, we have a Privacy Policy
