Ipswich East Rotary Club in conjunction with the Anglian Detecting Group


Hello Everybody

I can happily report that we had a great day out and many interesting finds appeared in our finds display.  Before the event opened a flint scrapper was found just by the burger bar....eyes only....so that was a very good start. Sorry I missed that photograph !
Thanks must go to Bob Parker the land owner for kindly opening his fields..The charity made well over £2000....thanks indeed go to everybody,for coming along and all the helpers...some names must be mentioned.... Sue,Simon,Jo,Dave,John.
A lot goes into these events from erecting the gazebo in one heck of a wind and toilets to selling of tickets. Thanks also to the generosity of those donating draw prizes.

Find of the month January 2017


On a cold wet wintry night it was well worth turning out just to see the marvelous items on the finds table.

We will be holding another day out at the end of February near Felixstowe for members of the local clubs more details later.
