Lost & Found stories:-
Detecting down the beach tonight, a very sad tourist came up to me and told me how she had lost her ring whilst swimming earlier today. She had spent 7 frantic hours trying to find her ring that held great sentimental value, I was happy to join the search, after 15 minutes, she burst into tears as I presented her with her much loved ring. Excalibur to the rescue.

It's the equivalent of finding a needle in a haystack but a lost wedding ring was fished out of the Gnejna Bay sand thanks to a 'lost and found' social media community.
Jane Hill posted an appeal on the Lost and Found Facebook page pleading for help after her husband had dropped his gold wedding ring in the golden sands of Gnejna Bay on Thursday.
It wasn't long before the post was shared numerous times and Tony Mead, a local metal detector owner, volunteered to help find the ring.
"My husband was lying on the beach recovering from a broken shoulder and had swollen fingers due to the limited movement in his left arm. He placed the ring on his pinkie finger. Eventually he got dressed and shook the towels of sand and proceeded to head home. Upon arriving home my husband realised that his ring was missing. We checked the house and the car and my husband went back to the beach to search without luck," Ms Hill said.
They posted an appeal on the Facebook 'Lost & found' page and within minutes a man offered his time and his metal detector. Within 10 minutes of searching and recovering nails, metal wire and foil, the ring was found.

"I cried and hugged him."
Mr Mead volunteered to head down to the beach and within hours the anxious Ms Hill was reunited with her husband’s precious wedding token.
“As soon as she put up that post on the page this man Tony Mead came out of nowhere and saved the day. It’s great that people can come together to help out like this,” she said.
