A BARMAN and gardener at a Reigate pub was devastated after he lost a family heirloom while trimming hedges.
Will Gandey, 20, was clearing weeds and cutting back shrubs at the Skimmington Castle in Bonny’s Road, Reigate Heath, when he realised the gold ring he was wearing had fallen off his finger in the grounds of the pub.
Mr Gandey was particularly distressed because the ring was a family heirloom and had been handed down from his great-grandfather.
Afternoon customers joined the search for the ring in the flower beds, and some even got down on their knees.
One patron involved in the hunt then told Mr Gandey he knew a member of the Reigate-based Weald and Downland Metal Detecting Club.
