Happy (??) New Year -
It would appear the New Year has started with a ‘bang’ -
We took the decision to shut the club including outdoor shooting early -
We have also reviewed both the Government guidance and what AGB has published (extract berlow), and find AGB’s guidance to be slightly at odds to the Governments -
Having reviewed this and taking the precedence of ‘stay at home’, regrettably we are continuing with the range remaining closed, understanding that this will be a bitter blow to those who on first glance may still have been able to shoot.
With best wishes to all, whether members, associate members, guest shooters, and especially those whose beginners courses have been interrupted, we trust that all remain safe and well and look forward to being able to provide more positive news, even if just restricted archery, at some point in the near future.
“Sports and physical activity
Indoor gyms and sports facilities will remain closed. Outdoor sports courts, outdoor gyms, golf courses, outdoor swimming pools, archery/driving/shooting ranges and riding arenas must also close. Organised outdoor sport for disabled people is allowed to continue.”
“As everyone in England is asked to stay at home, both indoor and outdoor ranges must close until 15 February when the government will review the current lockdown. We are pleased to see that an exemption applies for disabled archers of all ages and volunteers who support them. We will be issuing guidance on supporting disabled archers soon.”
