Do You Have Fairies at the Bottom of Your Garden?

Posted in Pagan News at 2:25 pm

That is the question the RSPCF are asking this coming May Day weekend. At the launch of what is described as the biggest, most comprehensive survey of its kind, chairman of the society, Peter Cottington-Smythe said, “There hfairiesasn’t been a survey of our native fairykind since my great great great aunt Lady Angelica Cottington presented her, er, collection to The Regular .” In 1907 The Regular, a monthly magazine, published photographs of the young Angelica with what appeared to be fairies. Despite being greeted by many in the general public as a hoax, it lead to the foundation of the Fairy Society, which became the RSPCF with the granting of a Royal warrant in 1964

“There have been some concerns over the falling numbers of the Common Spiggot and the spread of the North American Blue Goblyn,”continued Mr Cottington-Smythe, “So we hope that everyone will take some time to count the species that visit their gardens.”

Fairywatch, a special programme hosted by Bill Oddie will be shown on WiccaTV over the weekend, times vary so check your listings. WiccaTV channel 666 Sky, 606/660 NTL, 651 Telewest. Not available on Freeview

    Love the book. Q. Are faries nude? Why did she kill the faries, why not just capture them? Did she kill them all off?
