It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the sad news that our Honorary President, John Green, has passed away.
John has been a stalwart of our club and the county archery scene for many, many years and I know that he will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
We’ve just been advised that we have been successful in our application for a Sports England Small Grant to support the work we are doing with DMU Students and to expand this to local secondary schools,
We will use the money (nearly £10,000) to buy equipment, run taster sessions and beginners courses, and support weekly sessions for students from the university and schools.
Find out more at the AGM on Saturday 7th February
The last indoor session this year will be on Saturday 20th Dec.
We will restart after the Christmas break on Saturday 3rd January.
This Autumn we have been working with students from DeMontfort University to help them set up an archery club and affiliate with us. You may have noticed us running some have-a-go sessions and beginners courses with them, and we’ve had a few hardy souls shooting on Saturday afternoons with us – but don’t be surprised if you start seeing large numbers of enthusiastic new archers on the field next year – I’m sure you will make them all welcome.
