Club Development

We recognise the need to develop the club in the best interests of our members and our sport.

We also recognise that it must be sustainable, affordable, relevant & inclusive and importantly play a positive role in the archery and local community.

Our involvement in Ontarget, ClubMark & the Club Leaders Programme recognises our belief that good coaches will only flourish in well run clubs.

We also pursue our ‘Passion for Partnerships‘, working together to improve our effectiveness to the mutual benefit of all parties!

Working with Archery GB on the Club Development Programme ‘Ontarget’ is an important part of our strategy. We have achieved all 3 of the Specialisms Community , Young People & Performance! We are 1 of  only 4 Archery Club in the UK to have achieved this.

We are also a Clubmark Club for many years re-accrediting again in 2014 and then again in 2017 for a further 3 years!

The Club Committee meets once a monthly/bi-monthly and has a Club Development Officer focusing on this area.

The Club is part of the National Club Leaders Programme and was selected to be the first to participate from Archery GB.

The development of volunteers, partnerships and all members is key to the clubs success as is members supporting the development of the county and the sport as a whole.

Facilities Development

One key part of Club Development is the Facilities and tremendous progress has been made in this area, now having our own ground, services to the site, covered shooting area, temporary clubhouse/toilets. Expanding field course, landscaping in progress and a car park!
