FIRST PRIZE

I bought this David Hartley tribute to Detectorists a couple of years ago. The print is just how it arrived. In a card mount, the picture measures 10’x 7”. Not even framed because other matters needed my attention. Although this is marked up as first prize, the eventual winner will be invited to choose from the other two on offer if he prefers.

PUB? GO ON THEN!

The second victor may choose one of the books above. What remains will be given as a THIRD PRIZE. Metal Buttons is a signed copy by the author, Brian Read.
