Maggie Squires Coaching Day

Hi Everyone,

I am organising a coaching day with Maggie Squires (senior AGB coach) one weekend day in late October/November. If you google Maggie Squires you’ll see she is very well experienced with both bow styles and is an incredible coach. It’s currently open to 3 recurvers and 3 compounders. The day will be split into 2 sessions one for compounds and one for recurves. If I have more interest then I will ask her if I can add a few more people. This is a great opportunity and the cost will be split between everyone for the day. It currently will be £25 per person (with 6 people) which is very cheap for a senior coach as some charge up to £60 an hour. If you’re interested can you please email me at

Thank you! Hannah Powe

Volunteers for Thistly Meadow Primary School Summer Fete

Good morning everybody. I am looking for a couple of volunteers to help me out at the Thistly Meadow Primary School, summer fete on 7th July. We will be there for up to four hours between 1pm and 5pm, depending on interest on the day. I will also need help both before and after the event, to load and unload the trailer. If interested, can you please contact Mark Okuniewski, so i can start organising things.
