An active and welcoming society helping build a community for vegetarians, vegans or those interested in reducing their intake whether for environmental, welfare or health reasons.
We are Harper Veggies and Vegans (Veg Soc), we provide a welcoming and non-judgemental space for students to come together and socialise with like-minded people, as well as provide opportunities for our members to go on trips, take part in projects and hear from speakers and interesting organisations. We meet on a fortnightly basis, sometimes on campus, sometimes in local cafes, restaurants, and green spaces.
As a society, we are always open to new members and ideas and are keen to break down stereotypes whilst also having a laugh and enjoying some tasty vegan cake. We take member privacy very seriously, and any projects, volunteering or outreach will always be optional. For privacy reasons we also don't publish our meeting spaces publicly, so please contact us directly to find out more and meet up
You should join Veg Soc because it’s a great way to meet and socialise with veggies, vegans and flexitarians from all different courses, as well as getting to join in on nature and animal-related activities like woodland walks, trips to sanctuaries and sampling all the tasty vegan food and drink Shropshire has to offer! Veg Soc' aim is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for everyone on campus, working together to create a diverse and welcoming Harper to be proud of. At £5 a year Veg Soc is also a real bargain, and any trips that require extra member contributions are always voluntary.

We are a pretty relaxed society, but we do have some rules to ensure everyone can enjoy themselves.
- We have a zero-tolerance policy on any kind of bullying or discrimination. Any member found to be bullying or harassing other members will be subject to ejection from the club by the execs, and may also be subject to further disciplinary action by the University as deemed necessary.
- Member privacy is key, so never share the names or contact details for any fellow members without their prior consent (excluding execs, who’s information can be found on the SU page if needed).
- If you have a problem with a fellow member, talk to your exec team about it. We are here to help, and leaving problems to stew will create a bad atmosphere.
- If you are having problems with any other students because of your participation in Veg Soc, contact the chair Bea Kerry immediately. Any complaints will be dealt with in strict confidence and can be kept anonymous if necessary.
- Any trips or events, including university outreach, is completely voluntary. No one should ever be pressured into participating, and if you are being pressured please contact a member of the exec team.
- This society is for like-minded people to come together to socialise and have fun, not to cause trouble or stir up unrest within the university. If any member of the society is intentionally causing trouble within the society or in the name of Veg Soc, the execs reserve the right to eject them with no refund of membership fees.
- Annual membership is £5, with any trips or events that need a contribution from members incurring further charges in order to partially or fully cover expenses. The first meeting and social will be free to all, so you can come and try out the society.
