I certainly share Mary Ponsonby's concerns over the psychic fair at Scotch Horn. It seems to me particularly insensitive to hold it on Remembrance Day for the reasons she gave - we should be remembering the dead, not trying to talk to them. Unfortunately

I certainly share Mary Ponsonby's concerns over the psychic fair at Scotch Horn. It seems to me particularly insensitive to hold it on Remembrance Day for the reasons she gave - we should be remembering the dead, not trying to talk to them.Unfortunately there may be some people who have lost loved ones in various conflicts who think this may be an opportunity to contact them again. This is surely the great danger of psychic phenomenon - hopes raised, then dashed. A further danger is that there are those who try to guide their lives by astrological readings - even horoscopes. A moments reflection should remind us that 165,000 people in this country have birthdays on the same day. We would do well to remember that Sir Patrick Moore said 'astrology proves one thing - there is one born every minute'.I agree too with Mary's call for Christians to boycott the fair although I cannot imagine that any real Christian would dream of attending.John Hall - West Town Road, Backwell
