There are a number of events coming up which, whilst outside the borders of our fair county, may just merit a day trip out – not only to you get to meet the neighbours, but also spend time learning new skills, seeing new places, making new friends and generally having a good knees up. Worth getting your day pass signed for ;p
Firstly from Sarah of Nottingham:
There was talk of the Nottingham Pagan Network organising trips to sacred sites (Arbor Low, Hemlock Stone, Etc). Before I start planning anything I would like to get an idea of how many people are interested. Hopefully if enough people are interested we will be able to organise car shares for people who don’t have transport. If you’re interested could you please let me know. It would also be helpful if you could tell me if there is a particular site you’re interested in visiting so we can decided where to go first.
Thanks and Brightest Blessings Sarah email@example.com
