WITCHES, heathens, druids and wiccans from across the UK are set to spend a spell in a tiny north-east community.

The Pagan Federation is planning to hold its first summer camp in Inchberry near Fochabers. The three-day event, scheduled for July, will be a celebration of the ancient religion which is based on a respect for nature.

But the gathering has met with a frosty reception from a Moray church, whose minister fears it may encourage dangerous dabbling in witchcraft.

The pagan summer camp will take place beside the Inchberry community hall between Friday, July 18 and Sunday, July 20. The event is open to "all witches, druids, shaman and other pagans of good". It will feature an "opening ritual" as well as a host of workshops and talks.
