NEW GUIDANCE FOR WALES

Updated advice for metal detecting in Wales from 6pm on 23rd October 2020

Detecting in Wales is still permitted during the ‘firebreak’ lockdown announced this week. Detecting alone or with members of the same household is an activity that fits within the permitted exercise rules.

However, just to be clear, no group detecting (with people outside your household) is allowed. Unnecessary travel is strongly discouraged so please only detect, as part of your daily exercise, if you can stay local to your home.

All precautions to protect yourself and others are important. Please wear gloves, follow hand washing guidelines and keep away from other members of the public whilst detecting. We would also strongly encourage you to check with the land owner that they are happy for you to enter their land at this time.

We hope you all stay safe.

A little bit of common sense at last! Hopefully this message will be cascaded down to the various Welsh Police Forces??

North Wales Police have already stated that they don't see driving to carry out exercise (even if local) as a valid reason, and that exercise should start and end at home...As always, there is the law and then there is the Police interpretation of the law....

Just stay in or stay Local,, don't get a fine, don't run the risk of catching or passing it on, don't run the risk of your farmers denying you permission, its only a hobby and soon you can all come out again I fail to see the appeal to be fined for walking around a bit of mud to find buttons but I can see the unselfish aspect of staying in don't matter what fubar excuse the gov says, it's still the law.

Not spreading at all..I started working from home just before the last lock down and have been avoiding crowds ect ever since..

Even when the pubs, cafes and restaurants re opened with Government encouragement to use them, I avoided them (quite literally) like the plague; I don't think I've even had a takeaway since January...Visits to the barber have been replaced by buying a set of clippers and a grade two buzz every few weeks...

We missed a long booked holiday abroad during the first lockdown, but I certainly did not race to book another when the restrictions were lifted, unlike so many...

So no, I don't consider myself a spreader, I leave that to the folks in North West England that have done such a fine job of it...

No, I consider myself somebody taking a measured approach to life without locking myself away in fear..so yes I will be taking exercise in various forms locally as long as I consider it safe...

Lovely day isn’t it?

Everyone is a bit jaded by the whole situation right now. Mix that in with health/ money/ work and other worries and things can get a bit tetchy. Maybe best we all go away and stroke the cat or meditate or something as there’s no point getting more annoyed about things outside our control.

We would be particularly grateful though if the ‘I’m alright Jack’ type comments weren’t shared here - they aren’t helpful :thumbdown:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
