Bowmen of Minchinhampton – Have a go!

Sunday  11th and 18th August
10 am until  12 noon at OHMG.

The Club will be holding two Have-A-Go sessions at the OHMG  Community Centre grounds on Sunday to mornings of the  11th and 18th August from 10.00 am until 12.00 midday.

Everyone over the age of eight is welcome. (For safety reasons we do not teach under eight years old).

Again for safety, we ask all visitors to wear shoes with closed toes.

The sessions are free and visitors shoot under the tuition of Archery GB registered coaches and experienced archers.

If you have not tried archery before, this is an ideal way to – literally – Have-A-Go.  Just come along.
