South and Mid-Wales

An Introduction

A few months ago I was elected to be the new Regional Coordinator for South Wales and would like to take a few moments to introduce myself. Before I get to this though, I would like to thank my predecessor in the job, Kit Warwick, for his sterling work. A good friend and a patient soul, Kit took over at short notice and managed to keep us going until a full time coordinator could be found. Kit, you're a star! On behalf of the PF in Wales, thanks again for your help and support.

My name is Bee Baganz - Dickinson, I have been living in Llanelli with my husband Terry for the last 6 years. I have been active in the PF for about a year as Chairperson for the South Wales events committee and thoroughly enjoyed this role. Taking on this new role is a big step for me but I look forward to working with all my colleagues to make this region ever bigger and better.

I have started to visit the moots in the area and have been made very welcome by their organizers and the people that visit the moots. It is important to get a feeling of what pagans in South Wales know about the Pagan Federation's work in their community. Several of the mooters have come forward with comments and suggestions, which I will be discussing with Steve.

Obviously I would like more people to join the Pagan Federation because I believe in what it stands for and what it would like to achieve for our members. I think visiting the many events that we put on during the year is a great start to get to know the Pagan Federation. I hope during my visits to the moots I will be able to advertise the events and get more people to come along. It's always great to meet new friends.

Another plan of mine is to establish closer contacts with educational institutions, both HE and FE, to allow young people interested in Paganism to speak to responsible practitioners and ask questions in a safe environment. In my day job I am a teacher and have come across youngsters that use the internet to find out about paganism, especially witchcraft. Not all that glitters on the internet is gold and I am concerned that some of the young people may be misled by unscrupulous adults, who use their interest to draw them into unsavoury dealings.This does no one in our community any favours, especially when the media gets involved. I guess you can tell this is one of my bugbears.

I would love to hear from anyone who has ideas and comments they wish to share with us here in South Wales. You can either contact me direct via the Myddle Earth website: http://www.myddle-earth.info or join us on the Pagan Federation Wales forum: http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/pfwales/
