Particularly appropriate, this is also the hill that gave the group its

harmony for the people and landscape. It is hoped to make contact with
dowsers across Europe, to join with us at the same time along the current.

BSD member Mike Barwell proposed that 5 May (birthday
of the late dowser Hamish Miller) be declared 'International Dowsing Day'
as an annual event. The Society is supporting this idea, and we invited
all BSD Affiliated Local Groups, International Dowsing Societies, as well
as individual members and other interested folk to consider what they
could do in their local areas.
We used this page to keep you up to date with plans as
they developed – and there is more information on the
Facebook page for the event.
Please let us know what you are intending to do and also let us know afterwards
what your findings were - email email@example.com.
• You can design an event to suit your own interests
• There is no need to consider an expensive plan
• This could be the first of an annual event if considered successful
- let's make it happen!
So, put the weekend of 4th/5th May 2013
in your diaries now!
