Sunday February 23rd 2020

This OPEN event is to raise funds for Ipswich East Rotary Club and its charitable activities.
The venue is being held on fields near the farm and a new field a short walk away.
Ham’s Farmhouse
Nr Ipswich
IP10 0PW

We have been offered for our use three large fields of well-rotted stubble, and this includes one new field never detected just a few minutes from the farmhouse, parking, toilets & burger bar!

Some fields have intriguing crop marks and tracks as seen in Google Earth.

The area has produced medieval, Viking and Roman in the past including items of treasure trove interest.

Falkenham is very close to Felixstowe so follow the A14 and take the slip road at junction 59. At the top of the slip road turn left and go through Kirton village and pass the school until you reach the cross roads, turn right into BACK ROAD, continue down until you reach a large sign that reads Falkenham.

Turn right at the sign and continue down the track to the Registration tent just past the farm and sign in.
Here you will find a burger bar and toilets also a great with excellent prizes.

Depending which fields, you wish to try, we have hard standing concrete parking in front of the barn beyond the farmhouse or on the edge of the field leading down to the farm. Details will be explained on arrival.

All finds must be shown to those manning the Registration tent and will go into a display case with collection later in the day available, as we would like to take photographs and all to enjoy.
The rules of treasure trove apply and finds valued above £500.00 to be shared with Land owner.

The search commences at 9.30am And finishes at 4pm

The Rotary metal detecting rally you very kindly advertised in December to take place this Sunday February 9th 2020.

With very much regret we have had to cancel the event due to the unprecedented storm due to hit us on the Sunday.

This has also been compounded by the announced closure of the Orwell Bridge leading to our event .

Would you be so kind as to place a notice near the advert to let people know and let people know we hope to schedule
the event on another occasion

Many thanks John.
