Cumbrian Seekers is a newly forming club by a small group of detectorists who wish to have a new type of Cumbrian based club. No waiting list just join and you have permission to detect straight away in certain areas of Cumbria and the UK. You do not have to seek permission from authorities / councils as we have done this and have listed the areas available to detect upon in our permissions tab.
You do not need to be a Cumbrian to join as we have permissions throughout the UK.
The club is in its fledgling stage and only formed on February 19th 2011 so please bare with us.
We charge a fee of £5 to become a member of Cumbrian Seekers. This is because all the permissions we have on the permissions page are for our club Cumbrian Seekers only and part of the agreement with the authorities/councils we have listed is that all our members while detecting within their borough would need to hold the Cumbrian Seekers photo ID membership card, be a member of either the NCMD or FID and carry the permission letter taken from our permissions page. Then if you are approached by a council warden or officer you can show them all 3 items listed above and that you are allowed to be there. Once you have been accepted to our club you will need to send me a passport photo and either you NCMD or FID membership number. Please send me these in a self stamped addressed envelope and I will send the Cumbrian Seekers membership card back to you. O.A.P / Unemployed / MEMBERSHIP IS FREE. But you still need to be a member of the NCMD or FID.
Members are required to join one of the federations (i.e. FID or NCMD) to obtain insurance coverage and identity cards.
Can I also state that after you have joined Cumbrian Seekers and discovered it is not for you I will issue you with a full refund upon the return of your membership card within 7 days of joining. Thank You!
I have my own personal land to detect on, many 1000's of acres. If you ever wish to spend a days detecting with me you are most welcome. So if you or you and a friend wish to take me up on this offer just let me know and we can sort out a days detecting. I am available most days of the week.
