PD Lammas 16

pd-200-coverThe historic 200th issue of Pagan Dawn is out and we are proud to be a small part of that.  I have to say I had a little moment to see my name in the list of contributors alongside Ron Hutton.

I have also found some great Autumn Activities for you all to enjoy.

Summer Blessings and a prosperous harvest to you all, Sam x
