Meeting of the 1st August 2019. Our finds competition winners are as follows:

Artefact of the Month First: Viking Stirrup Mount, Andre Ray

A low turn out this month but we are in holiday season. A nice interesting mix of finds on the finds table.
Also a small selection of thimbles, this month’s subject for our new interest table. It is taking a while for our members to remember about the interest table so here is a reminder that for September the theme is Crotal Bells if you have any stashed away please bring them along. It is lovely to see the diversity within a group of similar objects.
Finally Rod Furness our long standing chairman (at least 25 years but he has stopped counting) announced his intention to stand down in December and asked that all members think about possibly standing to fill his shoes.
