Important notice : COVID-19
Having thought long and hard about this we have reluctantly taken the decision to close the gun club for the time being.
We did discuss carrying on shooting without opening the shed or taking physical money or using score cards and using gloves for buttoning etc and these looked attractive options if it gave people some opportunity to enjoy some sporting activity and fresh air.
However, on the other hand we felt it would not send the right message to others in the village who were not aware of the measures we had taken and could easily think we were being cavalier in the face of the constraints we are all being asked to face.
On balance therefore we have erred on the side of caution. We will keep reviewing the position with the aim of re-opening as soon as we can.
We hope you, your families and friends all stay well at this time and look forward to seeing you all again before too long.
With all best wishes
Ian, Glen, Mark and Colin

It is with much sadness that we have to report the death of Andy Littlejones yesterday.
Andy was a stalwart member for many years, a regular member of set up teams and attender of work parties, charity shoots and the like.
He always enjoyed his shooting and the gun club community and was very much a part of what makes a members club.
We will post and update with funeral arrangements once these are known to us.
Alan Hills Funeral arrangements
the funeral will take place on 22 February at Westerleigh Crematoriam, Westerleigh, at 12.30 and refreshments will take place at the Thornbury Golf Club, Thornbury after.
It would be good if a club representative was able to attend.
It saddens me to have to report that Alan Hills passed away on Saturday 19th January after a long struggle with illness. I will update with funeral details in due course.
Alan was a stalwart member from the early days and was one of the key members responsible for building our current club house many years ago and that stands as a tribute to the quality of his workmanship and commitment to the club.
He was a consistently competent shot. He will be sadly missed.
