Continuing our series of “A Day For . . ” events in 2014 we honoured the achievements and contribution to the Witchcraft and Pagan community of Patricia Crowther. Patricia is one of the few remaining contemporaries of Gerald Gardner and has to be considered one of the true Elders of the Craft and we persuaded her that the Craft and pagan communities deserved a chance to pay her their respects and celebrate her so we were delighted that she was our guest of honour on the day.
