Oxford Blues Metal Detecting Club
The Oxford Blues Metal Detecting Club was formed in the late 1980’s and today has a full membership of 140+ members from all walks of life. Welcome to your club website, three of our key members are pictured on the left.
They are from left to right Ken Marshall our long serving Treasurer and Joint Site Officer, John Richards also a long serving Chairman and Rob Wadley our relatively new Secretary and Joint Site Officer.
The Site Officers liaise with farmers and landowners in order to organise the sites for digs which we normally hold each weekend.
We have members that have been detecting for many years who have attained a vast knowledge of detecting and its associated activities along with new members who have joined us. One of our members has been with the Club since its commencement.
We endeavour to have a dig most Sundays, or occasionally Saturdays subject to availability of land to search and weather permitting. Members are notified of digs by email giving the location and details, this information is also published in the members only part of our website with the location of the digs and directions to get there. Members without email access can phone to get directions for the dig.
We have a very informal meeting normally on the second Friday of every month at the Royal British Legion Club at Littlemore. We hold a find of the month competition for coins and artefacts voted by the members. The winners receive points and a find of t he month certificate the following month. The winner with the most points at the end of the year is awarded a trophy with their name engraved on to hold for theyear. We hold a raffle to help the club funds. A guest speaker is invited from time to time outside the summer months to give talks on subjects related to our hobby.
