As we head into a great summer detecting season we reflect on events from a lovely dry spring with the exception of a wet June of course.
The wet June and the tall grass didn’t deter our members who got out ,got wet but removed a lot of dumped hypodermic syringes ,junk from Derbyshire,and saved a few casual loss relics and coins from the ever increasing environmental pollution.
Association members were delighted to help the family of Mr Peter Adams from the Broadway in Derby ,as part of our free recovery service. It was also great to hear that we recovered items following an accident near the Five Arches for the Timpson family of Alvaston.Unfortunately requests for assistance have come from very far away and we were unable to help Simon O Keefe from Manchester. However we were able to direct him to local detectorists who should be able to help him. So apologies Simon for not being able to help you directly.
We all collectively decided that we have to thank the following groups and individuals for their help and assistance over the Spring.Landowners and managers,staff at St Andrews House Derby,Management and staff at Regtons,Management and staff at Derbyshire County Council especially Joanne Beck,Richard and Gill from the Federation Of Independent Detectorists, Dave Dickinson from the National Council for Metal Detecting .Peter Timewell from Brightstar Independent Film Productions LTD
We wish all association members,people and organisations who were helpful to us ,and readers of this blog a safe and good Summer for the pursuit of our lovely recreational hobby.
