Here’s the proof alluded to yesterday that most detectorists don’t give a damn about PAS, other than to use it as a cloak of false responsibility to wrap themselves in when asking landowners for permission to detect:

The PAS fundraising appeal

.

Since it started in 2015 just 30 people (including ourselves) have donated only £1,248 to supporting PAS. Bear in mind most detectorists spend thousands a year on equipment, search fees, rally fees and petrol, and almost all of them tell farmers they’re PAS supporters. It’s pretty shocking that of 27,000 detectorists only one in 900 of them has contributed to the maintenance or continuance of PAS.

We have put a permanent link to the appeal in our left hand column to remind landowners, taxpayers, legislators and those currently contemplating reforms of the reality.
