WE would like to thank Cleobury Country Archers , who hosted their first Match last week, particularly for the hospitality, camaraderie, enthusiasm and patience. They are a young club , with little competiton experience , but were very willing to learn.
We tried hard not to be know it alls and they welcomed our help on how to run the event, how the scoring worked, and sometimes help with their equipment and shooting. They put on a good performance.
We are sure they have learned so much that any team they play next year needs to watch out ,
Thanks for a good time,
Our next match Round 3 is against Six Towns in June
Redhill Archers have achieved an award for the ‘Young People’ specialism by Archery GB.
The award available to ‘On Target’ clubs was presented to Sharon Medhurst who does so much valuable work with our juniors.
A small team from the club including Sharon, Fran Hardisty and Sheila Harris put together our submission, and they together with the coaches, helpers and of course parents have done a great job. Well done to all of you.
