Moot Reminder

Lovely folks,

A gentle reminder that it’s nearly moot time again!  The next Chesterfield moot will be this coming Tuesday, at the function room, Telmere Lodge, Mansfield Road, Chesterfield S41 0JH.  Their website is HERE

The Telmere also do food, so you are welcome to turn up early and sample their menu🙂

It’ll be my first time coming to a moot, help!
If you’ve not been before, we’re a friendly bunch, and you’ll find the function room double doors right at the end of the bar.  There are some small steps to negotiate to get to the pub entrance, and car parking is available on site.  You can always send us a message or comment beforehand, and we can look out for you.

Hope to see you there!

A Right Good Midwinter Knees-Up (Yule 2016)

Well, it’s coming up to that time of year, when it’s all dark and gloomy and cold, and it’s raining a lot, and, well, it’s 2016. And you might, under all those circumstances – especially that last one – be starting to feel as though the shine’s wearing off your day-to-day jollity and sparkliness.

What you need, dear reader, is a Right Good Midwinter Knees-Up to remind you that spring is just around the corner. Really. Earth only has to do another 188 million miles – even less by the time Yule comes around – and we’ll be welcoming the spring back.

While we wait, though, your friends at Chesterfield and Derbyshire Pagans will not be found wanting in the Midwinter Knees department, oh no they won’t.

(“Oh yes they will!”)

Oh NO, they WON’T. Now be said.

(“Boo! Hiss! Booooooo!”)

Bloody panto season.

Bring yourself along to Eyre Chapel on 17 December (2016), at 19:00 and enjoy frolics until midnight. There’ll be a ritual, along with music and drumming, even a spot of dancing if you’re feeling all rhythmically gyratory.

There’ll be a food share too, so consider bringing along a little something to throw into the mix if you can. (This isn’t a literal mix, by the way. It’s not like, bring sausage rolls and some iced buns and they’ll all get put in a blender or anything. That’d be odd.)

(Also, if you do bring stuff along, please do label whether it’s veggie-friendly or not.)

Also, also, also: if you dress up, you’ll have a chance to win tickets for the 2017 summer Lammas Camp. Worth a punt, I’d say.

If you’d like more information you can check out the Facebook page HERE.

Samhain Tidings

Hail to you and yours this Samhain morning!

samhain1

 

Dance the dance of the dying days, it’s time for the third harvest of this year, Samhain.  A time when livestock was traditionally culled to give meat for the winter and leave enough herd members to live on the limited stocks of feed until next Spring.

A time of ancestors and families, a time for grief and reflection over those who no longer walk with us.  Take time to honour those who are passed in your own way.  Write them a letter, buy them a beer, go to their favourite place and spend time.  Remember them as they were, and what they meant to you.  Wear something that reminds you of them, or connect with others that knew them and remember together.

Mabon Greetings!

Hail and welcome to the dark half of the year, with the second of the harvest festivals, Mabon.

A time of rich colours, the last bursts of Summers glory fading into russets and reds, oranges and browns.  The Autumn Equinox is also known as the Harvest Home or Harvest Tide. The middle of the harvest season, a time for balance in all things.  A time to finish up new projects and begin planning for new things, and for the coming of the winter season.  A time of warm days and chill nights,  a time of acceptance that the land is slowly falling into sleep.  Try focussing on food that represents this season, apples, squash and pumpkins, bread and grains.  Offer a little back to the land in acknowledgement of what it has given you this year.
