IMPORTANT: Latest Guidelines

The NFAS Committee is concerned with the safety of all members. Further to the government guidelines announced to commence on the 5th November 2020, all activities must cease for the duration of the lockdown from the 5th November.

These guidelines cover England only. Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland may have different rules that should be adhered to. Further government guidelines can be found here, section 4 ‘Businesses and Venues’ applies:

NHS QR code

The NFAS recommend that all clubs, shops and areas where members might congregate, to display official NHS QR code posters at their venue entrances to help support contact tracing.

This means that if people visit your venue, shop, woods or practice area, and later test positive for coronavirus, other app users who were there at the same time may be sent an alert, if local public health teams think this is necessary. The app notification will not mention the name of the location, it will just let app users know that they may have come into contact with coronavirus and provide them with public health advice.

Muttley Crew

Please be advised that Muttley crew archers' shoot dates will remain on the shoot calendar for the 2021 season, however due to current and future guidelines they may be subject to cancellation at short notice.

We will not be taking any bookings at this point, and we will advise accordingly, via this media, as and when we decide that we can safely put the shoots on. As the booking-in mug, I think it will be just 2-4 weeks in advance of the relevant shoot. The method of booking in will also be given at that notice.

Currently my mobile number, shown as the point of contact, is not available due to a mast issue in my area, hopefully the repair work will be fixed in the next month.

Aurora New Year Shoot 2021

Hello all,

The new Covid-19 lockdown, starting on Thursday and due to end early December, has clearly put a stop to all of our archery activities.

Who knows how effective that will be nor what will come afterwards, but for the time being we are keeping our New Year shoot on 10th January in the calendar and will make the final go / no-go decision by Sunday 27th December at the latest, sooner if necessary.

To all of you booked in, we will contact you directly to let you know the decision as well as communicating more broadly on the NFAS website and Facebook. If we have to cancel, then full refunds will be given at that time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Stay safe everybody and take good care.
