Spring Equinox - Glastonbury & Avebury

Sun, 08/03/2015 - 13:05 -- Anonymous (not verified)

A busy weekend coming up at the Equinox with two rituals taking place - in Glastonbury and at Avebury. I hope you can all come along to at least one.

 For the Glastonbury Rite of Spring we are looking for someone to step up as the Horned God - He who must be awoken, not with sticks, as some have tried in the past , but with music, poetry and dance. It would be particularly brilliant if any owners of antlers and horns would bring them along and participate in the Dance of Awakening. Drums are also welcome. We are holding a planning meeting in Becket's on Glastonbury High St next Weds 11th at 7-30. If you can't make the meeting but would still like to actively participate in the ritual please phone me 01458 835518  or send an email.

And you're back in the room

Thanks to some lovely people who thought it would be a jolly jape to infect the site with malware, we have had to roll back the site to a state we know is safe.

Unfortunately we only had a limited number of recent backups and couldn't determine when the miscreants performed the evil deed which has meant we have had to roll the site back to a copy taken in Summer 2013.

This means that some content has been lost and some is out of date, but at least the site is up and running again.

We have also had to wipe the entire user database and urge anyone who had registered with the site to change their passwords on any on-line system they access, especially if they have used the same password in each case.

We don't know if the user database was compromised but we have to err on the side of caution.

Please feel free to raise any curses against the miscreants although personally I think being hung by the scrotum would make an excellent punishment.
