The GBG "Year and a Day" calendar contains old photos, news-clippings and quotes from Gerald Gardner, Doreen Valiente and the tremendous women with whom he brought in to help the Craft take root and grow.
Each year features an additional High Priestess from the early days of the Craft. Previous years calendars featured Patricia Crowther, Monique Wilson (Lady Olwen), Eleanor Bone, Donna Gardner (Gerald's wife), Edith Woodford-Grimes (Dafo), Lois Bourne, and Barbara Vickers, who was Gerald's very first known initiate.
2018 is unique, where we include someone quite unknown to many witches. Monica English was a member of Gerald's Bricket Wood coven, founded in the 1950s in England. You can read more about Monica in Lois Bourne's book, Dancing with Witches, where Monica is described as Margo. Monica was a member of a coven in Norfolk, England which reportedly pre-dated Gerald Gardner's work.
