This month we’re mainly… Barbecuing

Our new columnist, Claire Thrift, on how to win this BBQ season

I can just picture the scene as I press send on the text to Rachel: “Yay! John, the Thrifts can make it” “Oh God, really?! But aren’t they all…y’know?” “Oh yeah, I totally forgot” *massive eye roll* “Oh God Rach, are we going to have to hide the honey? Will everyone have to drink quinoa? Will they bang on about sentient beings and make everyone else feel super awkward?” No John, we won’t. Because like any Mum out there, once I’ve spent the morning brushing the mass of tangles from my daughter’s hair while trying to convince her to wear the dress which doesn’t flash her knickers when she cartwheels, talking my son down from a two hour Fortnite session and stopping the dog from kissing the baby, I’ll be simply far too exhausted to chastise you and your dairy guzzling guests for their sucky culinary choices and will most likely head straight for the bottle opener to crack open a magnum of Whispering Angel, pray my white trousers stay stain free for more than five minutes and that my tribe don't break anything that can’t be treated with Calpol.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our jam-packed July issue. It’s always around this time of year that our staff get a bit thin on the ground, as we all head off on our summer holidays. We’ve had team members head to Ibiza, Madrid and Bali, armed with lists and recommendations, all seeking sun, sea and delicious vegan food. So to make sure you have your best summer yet, we’ve rounded up our top holiday suggestions (p42), got your sun care (p44) and snacks covered (p48) and Will Rankin has some brilliant travel hacks guaranteed to make your trip runs smoothly (p50). Closer to home, we have taken an in-depth look at the state of British wildlife (p106). I can remember, as a girl, walking through woods and seeing a huge array of animals — moles poking their heads out of mounds, timid rabbits darting back to their burrows and ponds lined with frogs. A walk through the countryside, sadly, can feel very different now — our wildlife is in serious and rapid decline with 11 per cent of our woodland species threatened with extinction. We uncover the issues affecting British nature and talk with those trying to save it. I’m also really excited to introduce our hilarious new columnist Claire Thrift (p58), who tells us about how her family are winning this BBQ season. Have a great month
