Hi Nipper, Pete is looking for a different venue, but at the moment it is still the same place.

The Club has a new website, but it still in production, but I will keep it updated as to Club details, the site may be a little eratic at times as many tweeks are in progress

Hi.
Been out of this for a few years but I were a member of a Dover club and 3 Counties in Beds. I am keener than ever to get back into this fascinating hobby and still have a great box of finds under my bed.
Would love to join up as I live In Maidstone.

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.
