Sir: For the summer solstice this year, 21 June, eight druid orders volunteered to cut their traditional combined sunrise ceremony down to 20 minutes only, to allow time for other Pagan groups to do their own ceremony.

The willingness of English Heritage and Wiltshire Constabulary to dispense with the exclusion zone is a testament to the peaceful nature of the religious ceremonies that have been taking place there in recent years.
