Welcome to the group, and feel free to schedule relevant events (even if you're heading for a drink, and fancy some company); but please do not misuse this facility.
I recommend turning off most email notifications, to reduce 'spam', you can even turn them all off and just check your Meetup calendar when you're free. See 'Pages' for how to do this, and more advice, member and venue locations, updating your Meetup location, etc.
You'll find many of us on the London Vegetarian and Vegan Meetup groups, and Volentia, THE social networking site for veg'ns, with over 16,000 members worldwide.
To connect with others, see our list of member locations on Volentia (Meetup doesn't allow enough characters to include all the info), which includes links to local Volentia members too. If you want to update your Meetup location, read this advice.
I hope you enjoy the group, if you do, please tell your friends, if you don't, please tell me!
