Gloucestershire Junior Championships

Another very successful day, plenty of smiling faces, an almost full shooting line and yet another step up in standard!
Highlight of the day was undoubtedly the 591 recorded by Holly Clifford to smash the National Record!

Flying Visit
We were pleased to host a visit from David Tillotson – Archery GB Director of Sport and Arran Coggan – Club and Facilities Manager last week ! Their support and interest in our project is much appreciated.

All hands to the deck!
Thank you to all our volunteers who helped on Saturday to clear a path, build temporary steps and move our kitchen furniture from the old container to the clubhouse. Great work everyone!

Clubhouse Furnishing
More formal announcement shortly but we are pleased that thanks to a very generous donation of furniture from the RBL and a number of other benefactors needed to get us operational, that we are well on the way!
