Re: New rules to be set for metal detecting in Portsmouth

Unfortunately it isn`t that simple.

Look out for the new ELM Scheme..... Environmental Land Management which will embrace the historical and heritage environment aspect as well.

Re: NCMD Annual Membership

As per normal, the insurance was still there for those who could detect and the organisation was still working.

Our Club are giving all our members a free year including their NCMD. :g50:

Re: NCMD Rules under lockdown 5th Nov - 2nd Dec

A question... Do PAS now speak for Metal Detecting? There aim, in my opinion is to control it and maybe even shut it down.
