I received a phone call one Sunday afternoon from Jodies mother explaining her daughter had lost BOTH rings in the sea at Canford Cliffs & she was distraught at the thought of losing them. They had only been married a year! Knowing how soft the sand is there & the high amount of treasure hunters I wasted no time getting there. Even with the current restrictions in place the roads & beach were heavy with people enjoying evening sundown.
We knew the rough area of search but because the tides retreat it added ‘doubt’. After some 15 minutes searching the sea a curious collection of her friends & family formed making the recovery even more important for me. Edging closer to shore the machine growled the ‘white gold’ tone & I KNEW it was one of our two. Five minutes after finding the first the second ring beckoned too.
The joy, relief & jubilation I experienced with them after making the recovery reminded me how important it is to have organisations such as The Ring Finders. Jodie & husband Ollie made a kind donation to Margaret Green Animal Charity for which i am most grateful.
