Richard Higham's Bio

I have been detecting for several years now and use state of the art equipment. As a side line to my hobby I like to search for lost property for the sole purpose of reuniting people with their lost property and raising money for charity.

  • I can't thank you enough and am so impressed that you were able to come down that same day and put me out of my misery. (2014)


    Dear Richard,

    Thank you again for your help on Saturday. I will donate £50 plus gift aid to the Dorset air ambulance today.

    For your blog, the story is that we were just spending a family day at the beach and I took the ring off to suncream my boy. I've done it a thousand times because I don't like the cream getting in between the rocks.

    Popped the ring in my pocket then got all rushed into changing to get into the sea and that was when the ring flew out into the sand. It was our 12th wedding anniversary the following day so it was going to be super sad if I lost it.

    I can't thank you enough and am so impressed that you were able to come down that same day and put me out of my misery.

    Wishing you all the very best with your ring finding in the future.

    Best wishes,

    Susan Hopcraft
