How to Join

We are always pleased to have new members join our friendly club so for that reason we have made it easy to join the Weekend Wanderers. Membership is on an annual basis and runs for twelve months from the month that you join and then renewed on the first day of that month a year later.

E-mails are sent to you with dig information and usually features where we are digging with directions plus research and history notes so we will need e-mail address with your application. Please let us know as soon as your e-mail address has altered.


A receipt is sent when you have paid for either new membership or for membership renewal. The initial joining fee to join the Weekend Wanderers is just £20 giving you one years membership. After that your annual subscriptions is just £15. We will e-mail you a reminder that your subs are due. See more on renewing on the ‘Renewals’ page.

In the event that your e-mails stop please let me know as soon as possible rather than leave it for months. There could be an unforeseen problem such as our mail ending up in your spam folder or even an incorrectly typed e-mail address which is a common fault. That is why we ask you to e-mail us when you join and especially when you renew so that we can copy & paste your e-mail address onto our database. Please include your membership number when you send your renewal.

As farmers often make last minute changes, dig details are normally sent just a few days before a weekend dig. If your e-mail has not arrived by Saturday phone 01256 702255 for recorded details and call on Wednesday for details of Thursday meetings.

Return your application form with your name  address, contact numbers, e-mail address,  fee & a photo with your NCMD or FID number on the back. We ask is that you are members of the National Council for Metal Detectorists (NCMD) or the Federation of Independent Detectorists (FID) that gives you public liability insurance that you must renew annually. We will then send your new Weekend Wanderers membership card plus an information pack with further details about the club.

All cheques should be made payable to Peter Welch and sent to PO BOX 7367 Hook Hampshire RG27 7FA

Membership forms & renewals can be sent by post or handed in at a your next dig.
