Hi John, this is a very old thread, the club has been up and running for about a year now, and sorry it is now closed to new members ;;z

Have you tried the invicta seekers ?

Hi, we have changed our web address, link below. We also have a non member Facebook page, will add that here too. Re the later it isn't a group for all to join, ( only people interested in becoming MHF members, so please don't add others or join if you are not local )

We are a large club that operates a minimum attendance requirement. Because we hold a dig nearly every Sunday we only allow members that can commit to lots of digs a year. When we have spaces we allow a few non members to attend. After a while subject to that persons commitment places are offered when available, normally March/April time. As members who have not met the annual requirement are not permitted to remain as full members. That may sound a bit harsh, but we got in to a situation a couple of years ago when we had about 130 members, some would just pick and chose a few digs a year. As a non profit club the administration became a challenge. We aim to have 30-70 people per dig subject to how large a site.

There are loads of other smaller clubs in Kent that offer a less pressured commitment if that would suit anyone better.

https://www.medwayhistoryfinders.co.uk

For the Facebook group, search Medway History Finders NON Member group

Please remember if you are not local to Kent requests will not be accepted.

I have waffled on a bit here, please ask if there are any specific questions.
I will add this is a very old post, there have been many changes to the club since 2011, I am the clubs Finds Officer.

You won't be able to sign in so to speak, as that is a closed section for MHF members, you will need to scroll down and send a message where it says contact us on the right hand side. Mat isn't a member here so that is the only way to sign up to be put on the guest list.

I can't add an image here as I am on an iPad, and too much hasle to add a picture due to the forums sizing limit

Hi, Mat said he has replied and also last time but never heard anything back, might want to check that you have received it ?

I was going to forward a picture of the message but the forum won't let me even PM you it unless the picture is tiny that you won't be able to see lol

I will try your email from my end

May need to check you have a valid e-mail as you haven't replied to mine or mat's ?

Either that or sign up to a more reliable one perhaps ?
