LOST! Update - the specific area is around the rocks between West Kirby beach and the RNLI cabin on the carpark at Wirral Sailing Centre.

Please help to find a wedding ring, lost around 8pm last night whilst walking by the lake. It's a silver band with a single triangle notched into it. If you find the ring please send a PM to Wirral Sailing Centre and we will reunite it with the owner. 🤞
