Committee

  • Sarah Kerr
  • PF President & Deputy Treasurer

Sarah is a healer, witch and is what many would call an eclectic follower of several Pagan paths. She currently brings her experience and knowledge to a handful of roles within the Pagan Federation including as President, Safeguarding Lead, Deputy Treasurer and Regional Co-ordinator for Derbyshire.

Sarah believes deeply that everyone should be able to practice their faith, whatever that is, without prejudice no matter what their path, age, race, gender, sexuality or life circumstances be.

Married with four children, she runs her own healing studio from her home in Derbyshire alongside her volunteer work.

  • Krys Holmes
  • Vice President, Volunteer and Training Officer & Children and Families Manager

I’m Krys and I wear a few hats within Pagan Federation.  On a local level I’m the Deputy District Manager for the North East as well as the Families liaison and local coordinator for Wakefield. On a national level I’m Vice President, the Volunteer and Training Officer and National Children and Families Manager.

I was brought up in the Christian faith but there were always elements that didn’t quite sit right with me, then at University I discovered Paganism and suddenly everything I believed fell into place.  Since then I got very involved with the local Pagan community; I run the local moot and am on the local interfaith committee representing Pagans; I also have PF stalls at local events and festivals.  My path is eclectic but I have a particular connection with Lilith.  You will often find me down the allotment or in my craft room; my day job is making metal and gemstone jewellery as well as crochet bits and bobs.  More recently I became a parent and have all the joys (and sleepless nights) associated with it; I wouldn’t change it for the world.

More to come

  • Anne Edward
  • PF Environmental Policy Officer

My name is Anne Edward, I am old, 
retired and a widow.  I live in a market town in Suffolk.  I started my 
Pagan Federation ‘career’ probably over 10 years ago now. I began as being  the regional coordinator for Cambridgeshire. I moved house and my  coordinators role changed to Norfolk. I was next elected to the committee in  2018 as council representative to the committee. I have always been a keen environmentalist.  For many years I was an activist and during that time I went on many actions and met some really interesting people over the years  including Bob Geldoff, Bianca Jagger and Annie Lennox to name a few. During 2009/2010 I lived part time in a Protest camp and we WON.  Possibly the most interesting environmental job I did was a researcher for the Biscay Dolphin research project.

We recognise that good environmental management is an essential part of overall good practice and the backbone of our nature-based beliefs.

Great Mother Earth of the land, sea and  sky.
Let us protect and nurture you once again.
We ask that we are all able to work together in harmony with this common goal.
We ask that with our love, thoughts, deeds and actions.
We help to light the path of your healing for a better world.

PF Managers

  • Jo Matthews
  • Products and Admin Manager

I joined the PF over a decade ago and began my PF career as the RC for Guildford. I progressed onto becoming the DM for South Central, at the same time as Prison Ministry Manager and Products Manager.

After seven years in the job, I stepped down from my prisons work and decided to concentrate on products and administration. I also handle welcome letters and renewal letters for members and subscribers, working alongside our Membership Manager and our Treasurer. I enjoy my role as Admin Manager very much!

I’m a solitary eclectic pagan who spends most weekends exploring neolithic ancient sites, castles and ruins all over the UK.

  • Lexi
  • LGBTQIA+ Manager

My name is Lex and I’m your National LGBTQIA+ Manager. I work closely with Dan (CSO) and I have a fab team (though we’re looking for new volunteers!) I’m in my 30’s and live near Newcastle with two small dogs and two notably tiny cats. I’m a data analyst in my day job and I also enjoy photography, writing, some gaming and I’m tentatively trying my hand at cycling.

In addition to being trans and queer, I’m a passionate mental health advocate having been diagnosed with clinical depression at 15.

My path is Asatru Heathenism; I’m a relative newbie having only been practising a couple of years and am always looking for information and suggestions. I find myself especially drawn to Tyr and I have a suspicion that something like Loki may be hovering on the sidelines awaiting some attention.
