Archery group celebrates grant with taster session for residents
11:00am Monday 19th August 2013 in News
MEMBERS of an archery club recently held a taster session for the public to celebrate a £50,000 grant they recently received.
Redhill Archers, of Wythall Community Association, secured the money from National Lottery funding from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities, part of an Olympic and Paralympic legacy programme.
It will be used to transform the club house into an “Inspired Facility” allowing members to practise and train throughout the year, whatever the weather.
It is also hoped that it will encourage new people to try the sport and then continue to participate for many years.
The club moved to Wythall Park in 1971 and has grown from 12 to a current membership of 62 and 22 social members – many of whom are retired archers.
People belonging to the club have achieved high rankings in the UK as well as shooting for archery GB and national teams.
