A pensioner who lost her gold watch while on a shopping trip to Sheffield with her husband is appealing for help to find it.

Norma Wicks, aged 72, from Worksop, lost the engraved watch – which is of sentimental value – between the tram stop at Valley Centertainment in Attercliffe and The Moor in Sheffield city centre.

She said the gold wristwatch, given to her by her husband Frank, 75, was on her arm when she got on the tram at Centertainment and headed for the city centre.

The couple got off at the Cathedral tram stop in Sheffield and walked to TK Maxx in Orchard Square before visiting John Lewis and then walking down Cambridge Street to The Moor.

Mrs Wicks said: “When we reached the Moor, I realised my watch had gone.

“I’m devastated because it was a Christmas present from my husband and I’ve had it for 10 years.

“He had it specially engraved.”

The couple retraced their steps and reported the loss at Snig Hill police station in the city centre, but the watch has not yet been found.

n Anyone with any information about the watch – pictured on Mrs Wicks’ wrist – is asked to ring The Star on 0114 276 7676.
