Contractors working on the £4million refurbishment of the St Ives Indoor Centre made a surprise discovery when they found a wallet which has been lost ... for 35 years.
Tony Noé and Richard Thompson, of Roger Budge Electricals, made the discovery last week behind a wall on the top floor of the leisure centre, next to a lift shaft, and now want to trace the wallet’s owner, a Richard Lane.
The pair, who have been working on the refurbishment since it began in June last year, know that the wallet has been lost for 35 years because it contained an original gym membership card that expired on March 31, 1978.
The wallet also contained a driving licence, revealing that Mr Lane lived in The Wilderness, St Ives, at the time.
Mr Thompson said: “We were amazed to discover a wallet that has been hidden for over 35 years. We hope that the owner can be reunited with their wallet as it contains personal belongings.”
