Fam­i­lies of the vic­tims

Macclesfield Express - - BOSLEY DISASTER -

●● ME­TAL de­tec­torists from a group based near to the Bosley ex­plo­sion site are ask­ing farm­ers to make land for a fundrais­ing rally.

Mem­bers of the Crewe and Nantwich Me­tal De­tect­ing So­ci­ety are ask­ing farm­ers in and around Bosley to of­fer at least 40 acres for a fundrais­ing me­tal de­tect­ing rally, which will see par­tic­i­pants comb­ing the land for trea­sure.

Pro­ceeds from en­tries will go to­wards the Bosley fund to help the vic­tims.

Keith Pay, from the so­ci­ety, who found a stash of 3,000 Tu­dor and sil­ver coins known as the Con­gle­ton Hoard, said: “We gen­er­ally find things like shot­gun car­tridges and bits of tin foil, but we would have to see if any­one found any­thing re­ally in­ter­est­ing and see what the farmer wanted to do with it.

“There are rules which gov­ern items found on a piece of land. We were shocked by what hap­pened at Bosley and want to hear from farm­ers who can let us me­tal de­tect on their fields for one day.” Call Joy Beres­ford on 01606 551055.
