Most local areas have meetings of some kind, many are held monthly in local pubs or cafes, some are in members’ homes, others are less frequent and might involve walks, picnics or countryside clean-up activities.
We have our own quarterly newsletter/magazine – Northern Oak – published at the Solstices and Equinoxes and sent out to all Associate and Full members. There are also some members who are ‘specialists’ on the different Pagan Paths and others who can help in areas such as dealing with the media, young people or Pagan parents. Twice a year we hold a District Council meeting where views can be aired and ideas shared.
