Get Jonty’s es­ti­mate for your valu­ables

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - By Alan Hayes alan.hayes@trin­i­tymir­

HAVE you got a for­tune hid­den in the loft?

Time to dust off that di­a­mond brooch and pol­ish up that paint­ing granny left you, be­cause the star of the BBC’s popular Cash In The At­tic se­ries, Jonty Hearn­den, is com­ing to Uxbridge.

He will be at the Pavil­ions shop­ping cen­tre, in Uxbridge High Street, on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 25 to cast his ex­pert eye over ob­jects brought in by own­ers des­per­ate to find out if their trea­sured pos­ses­sions re­ally could be worth a small for­tune.

And Jonty, who has forged a long TV ca­reer as an an­tiques ex­pert on shows such as The An­tiques Road­show, says he al­ways gets ex­cited about what peo­ple will bring in to show him.

“The whole point of what we do is to help peo­ple and to let them know what it is they pos­sess,” he said.

“And from that, they can per­haps un­der­stand its value.

“It’s ac­tu­ally amaz­ing what comes out of the wood­work when we put on th­ese ses­sions.

“I have had ev­ery­thing from jew­ellery worth thou­sands of pounds to pocket watches and pot­tery to – shall we say – overly loved and of­ten rather thread­bare teddy bears.”

Jonty and the rest of the Cash In The At­tic team will be in the Pavil­ions from 11am4pm.

For a free val­u­a­tion, sim­ply turn up with your cher­ished ob­ject.
