Equinox in­vite for druid cel­e­bra­tion

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

Auck­land has its ‘Druid of Devon­port’ but did you know that Porirua, well Pukerua Bay, has its very own Druids?

Named the ‘‘Grove of The Sum­mer Stars’’ it has over 30 mem­bers who cel­e­brate the eight sea­sonal fes­ti­vals in the beau­ti­ful bush­cov­ered hills of Pukerua Bay.

The Or­der of Bards, Ovates and Druids is an in­ter­na­tional or­der with it’s home base in the UK but with mem­bers all over the world.

The Pukerua Bay Druids are aware they have many good neigh­bours who prob­a­bly know very lit­tle about ei­ther Druidry or ‘The Wool­shed’ so are throw­ing open their doors.

Cu­ri­ous mem­bers of the com­mu­nity are in­vited to cel­e­brate the Spring Equinox with them this year on Sun­day 25th Septem­ber at 11am.

The druids want the pub­lic to head along, bring the fam­ily, and find out more about Druid tra­di­tion and their mod­ern day prac­tices.

They in­vite new­com­ers to bring their songs, sto­ries, po­ems, mu­sic, dances and in­sights, ap­pro­pri­ate to the sea­son, to con­trib­ute to cre­at­ing the spe­cial cer­e­mony.

They ask peo­ple to also bring a ‘pot luck’ con­tri­bu­tion for the lunchtime feast.

‘The Wool­shed’, 144 Muri Road, is along Muri Road, turn right at the old sta­tion to­wards Melody Farm, keep go­ing un­til you come to a large wooden ‘The Wool­shed’ sign at the gate and drive on to the car park.
