I hope this latest newsletter finds you all well and you are keeping safe.
I thought I’d once again write a small update on what we have been up to now that we have emerged from our second lockdown.
We have been extremely busy over the last few weeks, despite having to furlough fifty percent of our staff. We have tried to make the best of the situation as much as possible, looking for opportunities to make improvements whilst the ground has been closed. We are particularly proud of what we have achieved both in the clubhouse and out on the ground.
The Reception in the Council Club has been completely refurbished to what we hope you will agree makes a brighter, more welcoming and professional look
The old medium pheasant tower has been demolished as unfortunately it was condemned as unsafe.
We have redesigned and rebuilt the whole tower system to be higher, safer and accommodate five automatic traps on top. The tower can now feed high targets to a number of key shooting stands throughout the ground.
A new and much improved pulley system has also been installed to replenish the clays and batteries quicker and safer.
This has been a big hit with our game shooting community and it will be a key feature in future Club and Registered Shoots.
By far our biggest achievement has been the procurement of our new High Pheasant crane. A lot of work has gone into adapting it for use as a clay throwing platform and I am pleased to announce it is now ready and open for business.
We can offer a vast array of challenging very high targets either for individual practice, or groups shooting simulated game. It is fully equipped with the latest automatic clay release systems, able to deliver an array of multiple target presentations though 360 degrees and up to 250 feet.
During the lockdown we ran a naming competition for the crane and the results will be released real soon.
So why don’t you give us a call and take on the ultimate clay shooting challenge.
Finally before I hand you over to Shirley with the breakdown of our future events and offers, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all well for Christmas and the New Year. I hope to see you all real soon.
