On exiting the latest lockdown, from Wednesday 2 December you are now able to shoot outdoors. The previous booking system is now live again, & the rules remain as before this latest lockdown – see below.
The Club hut at the field remains closed and for the foreseeable future there will not be any shooting allowed at the Indoor hall at Lacey Green.
