Yellow Welly Award 2016

For believing that his cherished Garrett Probe was broken, because his probe kept
making a strange "bleeping" sound. Steve nearly threw the probe into the hedge
in temper after thinking it was totally knackered and was about to buy a new one.
Later that evening he viewed a YouTube Video which correctly informed him that
his battery needed replacing! Steve admitted afterwards that he had forgotten all
about this sad incident, but that he was very proud to receive the Yellow Welly.

Winner - Steve Richards
