Our huge debt of gratitude
 

It’s tempting to start this first editorial by stealing a line from the journalist Bernard Levin, a columnist on the times when it was closed down in 1978 due to an industrial dispute. When the paper reappeared almost
a year later, he began his famously acerbic column with “As I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted...” You can see why I was tempted!

Like the times, we’ve been in enforced hibernation, but now we’re well and truly awake, raring to go and so happy to be back! to our long-time readers – it’s fantastic to be with you again. to our brand new readers – we’re delighted to have you on board and hope you’ll stay with us for many years to come.

We think you’re going to love the new-format Psychic News! It’s packed with exciting news and features, including the story of one spiritualist’s single-handed challenge to the Daily Mail. In other news we profile the gifted medium Paul Brereton, and take a look at workshops for young spiritualists in Wales. We also cast an eye over the sNU’s impressive new venue in Edinburgh.

J.V. Trust chairman Eric Hatton and I at Maurice Barbanell’s desk in the new Psychic News office at Thremhall Park, Hertfordshire.

You’ll find some great new contributors in this and future issues, including former BBC Radio 4 producer Chris Eldon Lee. Chris explains why he believes it’s so important for mainstream media to give an accurate picture of spiritualism.
David Hopkins is widely respected for his work as co-author of the books Philosophy of spiritualism and the Religion of spiritualism. As a new contributor to PN, he’ll be tackling some of the tough moral and ethical issues faced by today’s society, from a spiritualist perspective.

   

Maurice Barbanell...smiling!
Our cover story digs deep into spirit communication 21st century style. Leading researcher Dr Anabela Cardoso reveals all, and offers a step- by-step guide to experimenting with electronic voice phenomena at home.
Roy stemman takes a look at another 21st century phenomenon – the rise of tV mediumship. It’s a subject that arouses strong passions, so join the debate and let us know what you think. And while we’re on the subject of strong passions, who says today’s physical mediums can’t provide survival evidence? Lew sutton dispels some preconceptions.
Many of you will know that the J.V. trust is the new owner of Psychic News, but some of you have asked about the day-to-day work of the trust. Its chairman Eric Hatton explains all in an interview with me.
Looking for an absorbing read to curl up with over the festive season?

We can offer you a heart-warming true story of love between two worlds. Check out our book feature on page 24.
Our letters page contains just a small selection of the wonderful messages you’ve sent in response to the news that we’re back. Huge thanks to those of you who’ve kept in touch. In future, the letters pages will be an open forum for your views and opinions. tell us what you love and even what you loathe. Don’t keep your opinions to yourself. Remember – spiritualists can communicate with the living, too!

And finally, before you start exploring this very first issue of the brand new Psychic News, let me take a moment to acknowledge the achievement of a very special person.

Without Eric Hatton, and his incredible determination in the face of so many obstacles, you would not be reading this copy of Psychic News. PN fans around the world owe him and his fellow trustees Hugh and Margaret Davis a huge debt of gratitude for their unwavering commitment to restoring its iconic voice to publication. And so, with my own profound gratitude for his mighty efforts, and for his steadfast friendship through tough times, I dedicate this first issue to Eric.

Happy reading!
