A date for your diaries

Sunday 7th May, Berwick Rotary Club is holding their annual Spirit of Sport day for people with learning disabilities, and we have been asked to lend a hand with the archery experience, anyone able to help most welcome.

March Postal League Shoot update

The road closures planned for end of march have been postponed until April 10th. Normal shooting times are therefore resumed.

Due to extensive road works from the East Ord roundabout to the Murton turn off on the road past the school starting on the 20th of this month until the 31st. John thought it prudent to hold the postal league shoot against Kirknewton next Monday (13/3/17) instead.

Help for Heroes

help for heroes_2

Berwick Archers recently visited Kirknewton to take part in a joint charity shoot in support of Help for Heroes. Kirknewton was the second venue in Martin Mycock’s tour of 18 clubs. It was great fun, on a splendid evening and, as you can see, with a fine turnout. As it happens, and perhaps fittingly, Martin won the competition!

This is Martin’s report after completing his tour on 28 June:
The Archery Tour finished today. I completed the 18th shoot. There was a bit of rain for the one and only time during the shooting, but not on arrow was lost in the whole 3 weeks due to weather. That’s a miracle in itself if you ask me 🙂

The collections went as follows (not all clubs had collections, either because there were only a couple of people at the shoot or because they chose to donate online)

Week 1
Sherwood Archers – £150
York Archers – £265
Kirknewton Archers – £313
Green Lane Archers – £79.57
Bowmen of Pendle and Samlesbury – £81.67
Eccles Archery Club – £62.20

Week 2
Phoenix Archers (Leics) – £82.40
Holdens Archers – £60 donated online
Dover Castle Archers – £50
Clophill Archers – £66.01
TargetCraft Archers – £20.07
Derwent Bowmen – £87.00

Week 3
Fort Purbrook Company of Bowmen – £17.42
Malvern Archers – £75
Bowbrook Archers – 63.65
Bowmen of Lyme – £195

Once the last 3 collections have been paid in the total will stand at an incredible £2684. Thank you all for making this barmy idea work. You are all linked together now as the clubs that were part of the Archery for Heroes Tour. Keep in touch.
