Bonfire with a vegan/vegetarian fry up breakfast 🍳 for lunch! Bubble and squeak, veg sausages, bean stew, home made bread 🍞, mushrooms, 🍳 … 🔥 hot chocolate🍫 Does it get any better than this?!
Open to all, whether you feel you have green fingers or just fancy a cuppa and chat… We love to drink tea and chat, actually we love to eat too 🍲 hence the "fancy" lunch straight from the fire!
Potluck lunch so please bring vegetarian food to share, if you don’t happen to slave all night cooking, don’t worry we always have plenty!
