FEDERATION OF INDEPENDENT DETECTORISTS
SUPPORTING THE WORLDS GREATEST HOBBY
VERY SAD NEWS
IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS THAT WE ANNOUNCE THAT THE FOUNDER AND HONARY SECRETARY OF THE FEDERATION PASSED AWAY PEACEFULLY AT HOME ON THE 27TH OF JANUARY 2014. OUR THOUGHTS AT THIS TIME ARE WITH HIS WIFE ELAINE, DAUGHTER TRACEY AND SON IN LAW DAN. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FEDERATION WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING NEW MEMBERS OR RENEWALS AT THE PRESENT TIME. I FEEL SURE THAT COLIN WOULD HAVE WANTED TO THANK DETECTORISTS EVERYWHERE FOR THEIR SUPPORT SINCE HE STARTED F.I.D IN 1982.

What is metal detecting? It is simply finding metal items such as coins, rings, badges etc. buried in the first few inches of earth. The hobby takes you away from your computer into the fresh air, where with the use of other advanced electronic wizardry, (the metal detector) you can have gentle exercise, enjoy nature and see what your ancestors left behind for you to find. Once at home you can share the information about your finds with others on the Internet and learn from fellow enthusiasts about their most recent discoveries.
