The August Awards and Competitions

August, another holiday month, was a little slow, but some notable achievements still exist.

Congratulations go to Steve Robertson, who travelled to Bath Archers, participating in their 65th Bath Hereford competition, where he won the Lady Paramount Prize.


New Club Records

The progress achieved by our archers is genuinely inspiring. Breaking records and achieving feats highlight the limitless potential and opportunities within their reach.

Seeing our archers work so hard to reach their goals is fantastic, they show that the journey of self-improvement can be exciting and that anything is achievable with the right mindset.

Keep up the great work, and never stop striving to be the best.

There are many, more records still to be achieved and lots of scope to improve on those already listed.

Check out all the club records.

The 252 Improvement Awards

To shoot at longer distances with confidence and avoid holding up other archers, it’s recommended for an archer to earn two 252 Improvement Awards at the required length.

These awards serve as a progression towards shooting at longer distances and reduce the need to search for missed arrows.

The 252 Improvement Award Scheme


Courtenay Welsh – 40 Yards

Philip Churchill – 50 Yards

Zoe Salvage – 20 Yards
