February Update

Winter Beginners Course

Congratulations to the 24 people who took our Winter Beginners Course, all 24 passed and most achieved their Red Feather and or White Arrow awards, some of the juniors managing both awards at their first attempt.

We hope to welcome lots, hopefully all, of the beginners to the club, so please do say hello to any new archers you may spot at Laverstoke, Testbourne and hopefully The Warren too.
