A key part of our Mission is to be an important member of our community and that has been important to us since day 1 of the Club! We started as a small club of Archery Leaders providing have-a-go archery for the Girlguiding Activity Centre at Cowley and all our members had strong connections with Girlguiding across the County.
As we evolved the importance of that became more obvious and this was re-enforced by our Governing Body as they specified ‘Community’ as one of three specialisms clubs should strive to achieve under the Ontarget Club Development Programme. This is again re-enforced by the ClubMark accreditation Programme.
Much of what we have achieved can be directly linked to the Community Partnerships we have formed and these include those with:
- Our Parish, Borough and County Councils
- Local Schools
- Recreation Centres
- Local Businesses
- Local groups and societies
- Community Sports Partnership (Active Gloucestershire)
