    I attended my first Quaker meeting today – in Sutton. There are no other vegans there. I hope to help change that .

    Hi,
    Just read your excellent article and wanted to say thank you for writing it and what was/is the response?
    I’m in London and the good news is that veganism is a growing trend here although there are unfortunately lots of v meaty restaurants around as well.
    Best wishes.
