Field Archers on hunt for new members
SHARP shooters can test their archery skills on Saturday.

Interested archers will be able to enjoy a day at the specially-designed range, which involves 20 short and long range targets.

is right-handed, so we can actually put a bow in a person’s hand,” Dakin said.
“They are absolutely wonderful for beginners, just to have a go and get a feel for the sport.
“Archery is great for all ages. It’s a good healthy sport.
“We are trying to grow the club and it’s open for anyone to come along.”
No experience is necessary for the come and try day, but archers will need closed in shoes and a hat to take part.
