as mentioned previously it has been a hectic month but it’s been a very generous month for the association as we recieved a surprise and very generous gift.

The association has been offered 20 acres of land in Derbyshire to use as Club land, by a very generous landowner.

The site is pasture,has never been tilled ,since medieval times and has traces of medieval activity.Nearby is the remains of a Roman military camp which is sadly being built on by greedy developers.There is also a Roman fish pond , evidence of 16 th century water mill and the remains of a 18 th century  windmill, plus numerous disused country paths.

So great potential there to save some things from damaging modern environmental pollution.

I propose that this land should be club land and members of the association should be entitled to search for free .

Obviously the three detectorist rule will apply and searches will have to be pre booked to avoid landowner fatigue

All finds will have to be properly recorded and notified to the association spokesperson

The landowner has promised to refuse permission to all other clubs and non association detectorists, and they will not divulge to them that it is association club land

So what a very generous gift  and on behalf of the association I wish to offer the landowner a sincere thank  you .

So please let me know what you think of my proposal and any amendments you would like to see happening.

Cheers from  john

a very happy association spokesperson
