A Letchworth husband is offering a reward to anyone who can reunite him with his wedding ring after he lost it – on his wedding anniversary.

Alistair McDonald lost the silver wedding band on Saturday, the 12th anniversary of his marriage to Lisa, while playing with his children in Broadway Gardens at about 3pm.

And among others, the 44-year-old from Gorst Close has enlisted the help of the Herts & District Metal Detecting Society.

“I just thought: ‘Oh my God, of all the days to lose it,’” said Alistair.

“That’s probably the worst day for this to happen.

“I was with the kids playing around, in that main grass bit and paved area by the fountain.

“I thought I felt it come off, but then we looked all around that area and found nothing. I’ve been out there on my hands and knees.

“Then I had a moment of clarity and got in touch with the metal detecting club. They’re going to send some people over to have a look.”

Alistair is willing to offer £100 to anyone who safely returns the ring to him. He describes it as a men’s silver wedding band of about average men’s size.

Anyone who finds the ring should call Alistair on 07768 852004.
