Nottingham's Ashley Mortimer is a trustee of the Doreen Valiente Foundation and The Centre For Pagan Studies, a firekkeeper for WaNaNeeChe's Human Circle Of Life and a prominent member of Pagan Pride, Nottingham Pagan Network, Nottingham Empyrean and 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 region. He speaks about the origins of Paganism, the history of Wicca/Witchcraft, works with WaNaNeeChe as a trained firekeeper and runs his own Earth Spirit Circles with an ecclectic and pragmatic approach to spirituality.
What I Do:
Doreen Valiente Foundation / Centre For Pagan Studies
In March 2011 I became one of five trustees of all the magical artefacts, wirtings and copyrights that belonged to Doreen Valiente. The Centre For Pagan Studies is establishing a museum to house these artefacts and others permanently.

I'll be working hard on promoting and organising Pagan Pride in 2012 - manning the Doreen Valiente Foundation stall, working in the community networking area and generally supporting a great and worthwhile organisation. Will have a new sign for the parade too ;-)
