Update from Austrey Archery Group

The Group celebrated Christmas in style with a Christmas meal at the Unicorn in Orton on the Hill, where a good time was enjoyed by all – a fitting way to end our shooting season. We have also recently enjoyed our annual skittles evening in January.

At the moment, we are shooting indoors in Shuttington and Alvecote Village Hall, so we are not troubled by the weather, although we may go out onto the field on good weather days.

Our last training course was well attended and produced a clutch of new members who have been welcomed into membership of the club. Our next course will run in March and is already fully booked. However, if you are interested in taking up the sport, please contact us by email at and we will let you know when our next course will be running.

Archery is a fascinating sport, suitable for everyone regardless of level of fitness, and, as the photographs show, our club attracts people of all ages.
