The Swale Search and Recovery club will have been in existence for 37 years this year,

originally formed as the Isle of Sheppey Metal Detecting Society.

Club meetings are held at The Hastings Arms in Gillingham, Kent every 1st and 3rd Thursday evening of the month.

Our club members come with all levels of ability and experience in the hobby and are happy to welcome newcomers. 

In addition to regular club meetings we attend rallies, some of which are small events on our own club land

and some national events along with other metal detecting clubs.


Any prospective members wishing to join the club may be asked to enroll on the waiting list

As a member you will be enrolled as a member of the NCMD (National Council for Metal Detecting)

We offer a FREE search and recover service for all those lost rings, keys, farm implements,

man-holes etc. providing your lost item is within a reasonable geographic distance.




Club members are invited to come forward with relevant ideas to celebrate throughout the year.
