A full set of the Rules of the Essex Detector Society will be given to every successful applicant joining the Club, but here is some general information regarding membership fees and dig procedures.

We try to arrange digs most Sundays between late July and October, depending on the availability of the Assistant Site Officers, and we carry on through the winter if enough fields are open. Midweek digs in the early part of the season are also set up when sufficient land and Assistant Site Officers are available.

Our digs are pre-arranged with the Landowner and must have an Assistant Site Officer present to supervise and record the finds. You must register in advance with that person by phone or text, in order to be included on the dig. However, as some sites have restrictions on parking or number of persons allowed, it does mean that on a first come first served basis, you may not be able to go. In the past we have run 2 digs on Sundays to suit the number of members wishing to go out.

All communication is by email, text, phone and Facebook, so we need to be notified of any changes to your contact details.

Our digs are free of charge and only Club members with valid NCMD cards are allowed on Club sites. 

Club sites can only be used for organised digs with an Assistant Site Officer present, and not by individuals at any other time. 

No guests, non-members or animals are allowed, and Junior members must be supervised at all times.

As the Club promotes the social side of metal detecting, we expect you to attend at least 6 meetings in the Club year, between April 1st-March 31st, and also pay the annual subscription by the March meeting, or risk losing your entitlement to rejoin.
