On the 26th August the NCMD posted they want you to provide your email address if you wish to be contacted by them on news and updates. Simple opt in form.

https://www.ncmd.co.uk/ncmd/keep-in-touch/
So simply just opt in or out!

Has anyone seen an up to date copy of FID`s insurance?
The website is a bit "lacking". http://www.fid.org.uk/

Actually incorrect, FID only insure their members, they do not represent us at Government level, as the NCMD do

Their website says they attend the quarterly meetings at the BM so maybe not at government level but they seem to attend at least some of the meetings.

I have been a member of both organisations and really that was for the insurance and nowt else.
I am in France now and a member of neither.
But I do think it is a good idea to have TWO organisations available. I never never like the idea of too much say, power, or whatever other aspect involved in a monopoly. It never ever helps the consumer. It is always good to have a choice.
FID is very important from that standpoint. I always found them refreshingly low-key in an increasingly hyperventilating world.
I always have a 'don't call (or email) me, I'll call you' policy with self-styled officialdom.
Live long and prosper.

Responsible detecting is a term not used much these days,, it's the farmers, the gov and the nfu that says if you can detect or not, metal detecting does not contribute to the economy and is not a sport, I don't know what all the fuss is about no more than 6 ( an it will get worse and several area lock down) I don't need ncmd telling me I can go swinging or not its down to the individual and current laws and also how much unselfish respect you have towards the people that allow this hobby to happen,, the landowners and farmers, nope ncmd don't need my email address I watch the news just as much as anybody Inc farmers.

But you have already stated that you are not a member of the NCMD, in which case they dont want your email address, nor have they asked for your email address
They have asked if the members would like to give their email address so as to be informed of news, competitions and anything else they might send
In todays climate giving email addresses for organisations, groups or even businesses is now optional, but a reminder that folk might be missing out on something is not a real problem as its still optional. :thumbsup:

Is this not a public forum site I'm just giving my opinion listen or don't comment or not, I'm just of the opinion that a body that supposed to represent said hobby is fighting to keep people detecting when the the whole world is trying to stop people mingling, up north where many places are lock down do they have separate detecting laws for them areas for example and if the ncmd as there members emails does it also collect where they live or is it a case of everybody go swinging regardless of local laws??

My opinion is as valid as yours fella :thumbsup:

The NCMD asking for its members email address has absolutely nothing to do with the covid rules, its 2 seperate things
Its just coincidental or bad timing
They want members email addresses because its an easy and quick way to convey whatever it is they convey to people, such as competitions, news, polls, valuable input, updates etc
Covid updates are just put on their webpage or facebook pages as its a fluid situation

Yes it is a public forum and as such we can all comment and debate things, thats what it is all about :thumbsup:

Carling I think you’ll find they have been asking their members to take note of local lockdowns and the new rules :thumbsup:

This topic is, however, just highlighting that NCMD members can voluntarily provide their emails if they chose to because they want to be kept informed of hobby news. Nothing is compulsory and none members should just ignore the request anyway as it doesn’t effect them.

There is a lot of worry around right now, I understand that and sympathise as I’m worried too, but please can we keep this topic on track :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Can you just clarify for me what say the NFU has on Detecting? I'd genuinely like to know, If a farmer says I can go on his land, I have my insurance through NCMD and the Govt hasnt stopped me due to Covid restrictions then I'm out detecting, I'm not aware of the NFU having a say in the matter, however I'm happy to learn otherwise.

If you renew your NCMD membership online you do not have to do anything (as long as you are happy) as they already have your email address
