DNAA at NCAS Clout Champs 2019

Don’t be fooled by that sky, the wind was tricky and even cold at times. But the hardy DNAA clout enthusiasts were not deterred and it was Helen Horsley from Riverside Archers who rose to the top, winning the trophy for ladies longbow on Sunday!  Lady Paramount and Lord Patron duties were carried out with style by our very own Mary and Connor Rathbone over both days.

Helen George Funeral – please read

From Tony George:
I’ve been inundated with questions about floral tributes for Helen, however I know Helen hoped that she could leave a legacy after her death. As a result Helen’s chosen charity is hounds for heroes. One word and dot com. The choice is yours but on the day of Helen’s funeral there will be no collection and I leave the decision to support this, to you alone. Thank you. Tony George.
