Solent Metal Detecting Club.
The Solent Metal Detecting Club was formed in April 1983 by a group of metal detecting enthusiasts. We meet once a month. These meetings are largely informal. A raffle is held during each meeting to help with club funding. We arrange occasional talks by visiting speakers on a variety of subjects. A Finds Liaison Officer attends at regular intervals to record finds for the Portable Antiquities Scheme. All our members are required to be a member of the Federation Of Independent Detectorists (FID) or the The National Council for Metal Detecting ( NCMD ). The club is based in Waterlooville ( click here for map and details) and has a number of areas of land locally where we have permission to search. The club supports the Rosemary Foundation which is a registered charity. We have no regular club fees except our annual subscription, which is currently set at £50.00 of which £10.00 goes to club membership and £40.00 being donated to the Rosemary Foundation.. If you are interested in becoming a member of our club, please read the information on the Membership page.
