Our very own Helen Sharpe of Wellingborough Open Archery Club, shares her first-year journey as an Archery GB Club Ambassador, on the Archery GB website.
“Archery is my sport, the sport of my family, the sport that I love. It, in my opinion, allows anyone of any age, ability or group to be together in the same environment and get together either socially or to have grassroots archers stand in a club environment against the country’s top archers. I cannot think of any other sport that creates this coming together of everyone within it.”
Due to Archery GB advising that all archery in the UK is postponed for the foreseeable future. Please expect a number of organised club events and open shoots due to take place within the next few months to be cancelled.
Today, Kettering Archers have confirmed that both the Angela Bray Memorial Clout on 19th April, and the NCAS 1st Caswell on the 3rd May which they are hosting, are both cancelled. The club hope to run the Angela Bray Memorial Clout later in the year if possible.
In view of the government briefings yesterday and the number of people getting in touch with me to say they would not be going to attend, this Sundays (22nd March) NCAS coaching session at Montsaye sports academy in Rothwell is cancelled.
Sorry for the short notice but we have tried to delay as long as possible because people wanted to attend. I expect the outdoor session (at this stage) in May to go ahead.
Regards and thanks for understanding.
