As everyone in Derbyshire knows that April 1st is a time for practical jokes and tricks up untill midday, Having had a few pulled on me so far and it’s well past the mid day point ,it’s safe to continue on with normal business.
Just recently the Association received an unusual request from a Mr Linden Weaver, a Derbyshire Archaeologist based in Belper.He would be most grateful if he could be allowed to accompany members on field detecting trips out and about in Derbyshire.The purpose of this request is to “shadow and help”
Now I do know that all association members are still reeling from the underhand way that another archaeologist Mr Paul Barford treated us and Jack in particular. But I do ask that members to be open minded about Mr Weaver and to consider and accommodate his request.
i know it is at the end of the detecting season as crops are going in,but I would be most grateful if willing members could contact me within the next month , so that Mr Weaver has sufficient time to sign the presearch guest detectorist legal agreement and to arrange his own public liability insurance cover.
looking forward to all your responses.
