We just wanted to say a massive great big thank you to the many thousands of you who have downed your detectors in the last week. Your support has been incredible and we hope you are as proud of the people in this hobby as we are.
We are continually checking for feedback on what we are doing and we recognise that some people thought the language in our statement last week was too strong. Whilst we don’t apologise for the stance we took ,we are sorry if the tone of our message offended anyone It certainly wasn’t our intention.
Finally we just wanted to say that we know how hard it is not going out detecting, especially as the weather has improved. It really isn’t easy, so we promise to keep reviewing the situation and, as soon as it’s safe to do so, we’ll update our advice.
Thank you again
