This free training session is for all FRAG members interested in metal detecting – whether or not you have previous experience.
Group 1: Beginners:
To provide best practice knowledge from experienced metal-detectorists.
If you have a metal detector please bring it.
Group 2: Regular metal-detectorist:
There is an opportunity to practice skills searching part of a field that has already produced some interesting finds.
Ashton – between Peterborough and Stamford
Group 1: There will be two cohorts. One from 10am – 11.30am and then from Noon – 1.30pm. Allow 30 minutes to drive to the venue and prepare for the session. Those with their own metal detectors will then be able to stay and use their now found skills in detecting with others in the afternoon. Please remember to book your slot on the booking form.
Group 2: There will be up to 4 detectorists in each time slot and they will be allocated an area to detect. There are two time slots (10am – Noon and 1pm – 3pm). Depending on the numbers in this cohort, members may be able to stay for the whole time.
As part of the day all those attending will be expected to assist with the setting up of the areas to be metal detected.
Location details will be given to those attending by 30th October. We will endeavour to reduce the number of cars that we take. So once we know who is coming we will arrange to go in as few cars as possible. If you are willing to take others in your car please let me know at the time of booking your place. Many thanks
What to wear:
Warm comfortable layers and full waterproofs, hat, scarf, gloves and wellingtons or walking boot. If the weather gets too wet we will end the session as the equipment could be damaged. You are welcome to bring your own metal detector if you have one.
All those attending will be required to complete and sign a declaration form once their place has been confirmed on the training day.
This training is only open to FRAG members and is on a first come basis.
