Quotes We went on our first fossil hunt with the group last week. Couldn't meet a nicer friendlier bunch of people. They took time to answer questions, explain the geology, and even managed to find us a dinosaur footprint or two to top the day off. Quotes

Quotes It has been fantastic to find such a friendly and inclusive community sharing their passion for fossils. I have met UKAFH members of all ages who range from complete beginners through to those who have decades of experience. I joined with zero knowledge and found UKAFH a great environment to discover more about palaeontology, where you won?t be belittled for asking seemingly daft questions (I have asked a fair number of those!) and everyone is genuinely enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge and experience.

Great group

Quotes Until I joined UKAFH I was a lone collector only going to easily accessible sites with a restricted range to collect. Now we have access to great sites with only Club access allowed. The Meets are run very legally, Safely , knowledgeably and with a great bunch of other members from all walks of life . Graig, the Leader runs the Club with all our wellbeing and enjoyment his priority. The Gold Hunts are to some very restricted sites and even the Standard Hunts benefit by having very knowable members in attendance only to willing to share the best things to look for. We all look for the unknown and rare finds and as a new starter to the Hobby it is just as likely to be you and be the envy of all and you never even new what it was until you show the strange sample to a more knowledgeable member who also may not even have found one before but was aware of there existence by study and reference. A Club For All Quotes
