Nottingham's Ashley Mortimer is a trustee of the Doreen Valiente Foundation and a director of The Centre For Pagan Studies, a firekeeper for WaNaNeeChe's Human Circle Of Life and a prominent member of Nottingham Pagan Network, Pagan Pride and Nottingham Empyrean as well as a frequent representative of the Pagan Federation.
Ashley is an occasional writer, even more occasional musician and a prolific contributor to many different Pagan events and interests in and out of the East Midlands region. He speaks about the origins of Paganism, the history of Wicca/Witchcraft and leads ceremony and ritual with an ecclectic and pragmatic approach to spirituality underpinned with warm humour.
What I Do:
Doreen Valiente Foundation / Centre For Pagan Studies
In March 2011 I became one of five trustees of the legacy of magical artefacts, writings, documents and copyrights that belonged to Doreen Valiente. The Centre For Pagan Studies is establishing a museum to house these artefacts and others permanently.
