PEBBLE is the Public Bodies Liaison Committee for British Paganism. PEBBLE is a network organization to promote Pagan interests, community services and civil rights, especially to British government agencies.

PEBBLE was formed in 1988 originally to lobby for access rights to Stonehenge. It has since expanded its activities. Partners include more than 20 orders, groups and individuals, among them the PagAn Federation, the Pagan Network, the Pagan Association, Heathens for Progress, the Druid Network, Derbyshire Pagans and the Council of British Druid Orders.

Some of the projects undertaken by PEBBLE are to get Paganism listed as a religious selection in the 2011 British census and to get Pagan terminology in new editions of the Oxford Dictionary.
