Sorry I haven’t been able to buddy up with each and everyone of you during the excellent winter, like Jack used to be able to.This is because I have been very busy in work and having very antisocial work patterns. However I have been in verbal contact with association members and I know that each of you have been out and about making derbyshire safer for everyone during the winter.
it was a very quiet season for retrieving lost items as I have not heard of any reports of people contacting us to recover lost items.
as always we offer sincere thanks to landowners and managers ,and the staff and management of St andrews house .
an older member has reminded me that this will be the 25th year of the origins of the association when two members concerned at the way our brilliant hobby was going ,decided to start buddying up informally.We are a very small group of Detectorists and have limited means , but hopefully this year we can do or start something special this anniversery year.
