Gold ring finding or metal detector hire ?

Hi guys, I know this isn't the type of prospecting you're used to, but my mother has lost a gold ring of considerable sentimental value in the garden. We've obviously searched everywhere we think it could be but there's plenty of areas of long grass and deep leaf litter.

Can anyone recommend a place to hire a metal detector or another clever way to track it down ? She's in Westbury if anyone nearby could loan a metal detector for a small reward ?

im happy to have a look for you and will be in Sheffield not this weekend but next if thats not too long to wait? Your more than welcome to borrow the detector too., but its easier and a higher probability of finding it, if your already familiar with its operation.

have a great day

Thanks very much mate, are you offering to have a look or just lend ?

Ans is that the 5/6 May, because she'll be home then and would be very grateful for any assistance !

Hi again

yes prob the Sunday afternoon but see what the weather is like closer to the day. im a 45 min drive to westbury from Sheffield (home).But Im working down the west coast till then so cant do it any earlier.

hopefully its an easy find and she can go about her day. If i cant find it, your more than welcome to borrow the detector for a week yourself.

have a great day
Phillip

Hi there, did you have any luck with locating the ring? My wife and I have a good detector and live near Deloraine, so let us know if you still need assistance cheers, Drystone

Update time !

Thanks heaps to Philski who came out and spent a few hours looking, total professional and great guy who was happy to help out. Wouldn't even accept some cash for his time and effort after driving hours ! Sadly though we couldn't find the ring, just old matchbox cars and broken watches :lol:

A few weeks ago mum found the ring though, it's been out in the front garden hiding under the leaves for months, and she just spotted it while weeding. :roll:
