Psychic & Holistic Fayre

Following on from my last post – we arranged a Psychic & Holistic Fayre on Remembrance Sunday (11th November) in the Barony St John’s former church hall building in Ardrossan.

The cost of admission was £2 including a free cup of tea with all proceeds going towards the Barony St John Regeneration Project and a donation to The Poppy Appeal.

There was a crystal demonstration / talk by renowned spiritualist Joan Frew at 12 o’clock; an insight into Auras with John Seery at 1.30pm; a psychic medium demonstration from international medium George Whyilie at 3pm; plus a vast choice of tables offering Tarot / Angel / Buddha card readings, Crystal hand readings, Reflexology, Reiki, The Cove, The Wandering Star, American handbags and lots, lots more.


The day went well with 98 people attending despite the wet weather. And we raised a total of £908.20 for the charity as Ann Smith who organised the event on behalf of The Phoenix Spiritualist Church, who use our Training Room as a venue every Tuesday, donated all proceeds to our cause.

Many thanks to Ann and all the members of the spiritualist church who helped man the door, take raffle tickets, give out refreshments etc. plus everyone who came along and made this day a success.

Remembrance Sunday 2018

Every year since 2015, I have put a poppy on the Remembrance plaque of the parishioners of the Barony who fell in the Great War.

This year I put a soldier silhouette as well to mark the 100th anniversary of the War – and someone came in with some knitted poppies for the plaque too.

Lest we forget.

Spiritual movements?

Some weird goings on have been happening in the Barony St John recently. We have had CCTV installed and the monitor shows some strange orbs flying around the hall.

The video is better viewed on our Facebook page – Barony St John Regeneration Project – but here are a couple of photographs which hopefully you can make out the orbs and the trails they leave across the floor.

Very weird.

And the video has sparked interest from a Paranormal Investigation Team who want to conduct some experiments in our hall.

What do you make of it?
