Latest Government Announcement

Further to government guidelines on 4th January 2021, there is a further National lockdown and archery must cease. The government guidelines are pretty clear – protect the NHS and stay at home. All outdoor sporting facilities are to close therefore all clubs/ranges and other archery activities stop. If everyone does their bit then hopefully the lockdown will ease sooner rather than later.

04/01/21 government guidelines

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to being out shooting again at some point in 2021.

So I will be starting from scratch and harlequin will be having a new email address, OUR FUN SHOOT IS CANCELLED ON FEBRUARY 14th. Again massive apologies

please all stay safe hope to see you all soon

Muttley crew archers open shoot dated 27th Feb is cancelled (think you all know why)

Our May shoot remains on the calendar, however it will be subject to Government guidelines, and the NFAS guidelines nearer that date in May.

Carole our field officer is currently planning some new routes for our course, which should be different, due to our landlord providing some new pathways through some of the areas in the larger part of the wood. I have not been to our wood since last February, but hoping to have a walk round when my first jab is in place mid Feb (on my own and with landlords permission ). Feeling a bit excited, but not sure our activities will get very far this year (always the pessimist).

All take care, stay safe, and we hope to see you soon. Geoff and all the team.
