NCMD WESTERN REGION
CHARITY METAL DETECTING EVENT
17 FEB 2019
This 2019 annual regional event took place again at Grittleton, near Chippenham. The club hosted and ran the event for a third year running, proving more successful in terms of both attendance and revenue generated for charity. Amongst the finds were medieval hammered and Roman silver coins. Contributing to the popularity of the event was a wealth of prizes in the prize draw and raffle.
The flagship prize, a Minelab Equinox 800, was won by Tim Morris of Weston Historical Research and Detecting Association (WHRADA). Nick Keeler presented Chippenham club with the regional trophy for running an excellent event at Grittleton for three consecutive years. The trophy was received by the Chairman, Terry Kearton.
