St David was a vegetarian.

St david's Day celebrations are the talk of the media. The singing part of it I endorse enthusiastically. I was a 77-year-old among those pensioners pictured last Saturday in the South Wales Echo article about the Rainbow Concert Party and their weekly performance for other pensioners, but I spent that very day in Bridgend town centre inviting the public into the York Cafe bar.

We invited people to enjoy free vegan alternatives to burgers, sausages, cheese, fish, ice cream and much more.

Vegans should no longer have the reputation of being deprived.

Our patron saint, Dewi, was renowned for abstaining from animal food.

He lived off bread, vegetables, fruits and nuts and set up many monasteries following these ideals.

Either directly or indirectly, at least 80 per cent of our land is used to feed animals.

How very sensible it would be if we all ate fruit, vegetables and nuts etc.

If your interest or conscience is aroused you can find out all you need to know from:

We have held a number of these tastings.

Our next will be in Treorchy.
