First Night

It has happened - our first night at our new home and all went well

Members shooting

New Premises

We have now moved equipment to The Old School, Long Melford ready for when we start shooting.

Still have to put up new nets and mark both rooms out but hope to be ready for early October.

The club AGM is scheduled for 7pm on 4th October at The Old School and hopefully we will know when shooting will recommence by then.

Will be a little bit different as the club will be split between two rooms - one is long and thin, where we can do distances of 20 yards, and maybe 25 yards, but maximum of 12 archers in two ranks of six - the other room will allow us to shoot about 10 yards, so ideal for setting up bows, beginners and taster sessions, but is wider to allow more archers to shoot.

We will learn as we go along to work out best practice for all members benefit, but may take a little time to get things right.

Awful News

After just returning to indoor Archery we were given the news that after 31st August the Sports centre would close and we have to find a new home.

There is a protest group and the fight to keep the centre open 9 a great asset to the community ) has been joined by the Town Mayor.

At present there will be no further indoor facilities after 23rd August as 30th is a Bank Holiday and centre closed anyway
