Better late than never, The Santa Hats Rally of 2017 is finally here! It will be held in Rooksbridge on Sunday 21st January at a site we have visited before and has proved productive in the past so we're confident that it will produce more goodies this time around. We have around 60 acres of stubble and pasture to play with.

There will be the usual fun and frolics with a token hunt and prizes so don't forget to bring your santa hats!

The meeting time will be 9.00am and the rally will start at 9.30 am. The rally will finish at 5.00pm.This will be a DetectingWales.com members only rally and I'm afraid everyone attending must be over 16 years of age. Usual terms and conditions apply. Everyone who attends does so at their own risk and we recommended that everyone has civil liability insurance. If you are a member of a club you will probably already have this. Please check.

Hi Ceri. Over the bridge and head towards Weston - 15 minutes across from there. Fields feel like they are in the middle of nowhere but at one point they were somewhere very important. No sign of Georgian or Victorian coinage but I would estimate we have pulled out over 120 hammered coins that we know of in four visits. I have found four myself plus a smattering of Roman. The monks dug the canals out that border the fields circa 1300s so we speculate that its a trading post or fair site. Not been there in four years and it gets ploughed annually.   Three pieces of treasure to date from there. Its where I coinded the phrase Hammeredfest many years ago, that is now used by all and sundry - I should have trademarked it Cheers.

There comes a time in every rightly constructed boys life when he has a raging urge to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure.

I am not sure if I am able to attend the rally as yet maybe working that day, I will know at a later date if I can attend or not,  will there be a food/burger tent etc?  and  how much is the rally on the day and is there a percentage of fees  or raffle fees being donated to charity, thanks gary.

Nope its not a charity rally, there is no food hut, the raffle is free, it costs £7 paid on the day and you pee in a hedge. Exactly the same as the last 90+ rallies we have held.

I wouldn't know about the previous rallies as I haven't been on one yet,  that's why I asked,   hopefully I will be available to attend this one but do not know as yet.  thanks for the reply.

Thanks Neil, not sure if I can make the 21st but it sounds like fun. I've been detecting for about eight months now, have no treasures of note to report but thouroughly enjoy the hunt, the history and the fresh air. The prospect of a first hammy is very tempting! Hope to meet with you all soon!
