John Thomas – Priory Archers Chairman

Many of you will have heard that John Thomas, Chairman of Priory Archers, passed away on Sunday Morning.  Unfortunately with the current situation, funeral arrangements are uncertain.

Barry Small, Secretary of Priory Archers, speaks to John’s significant impact on the Club and on archery in general:

John was the chairman of Priory Archers, in his competitive days he was an active member of our compound team winning many competitions.  Although in later years he did not shoot he was responsible for all of the club’s social media and admin.  He could also be found on the sidelines at competitions as the club’s biggest cheerleader with enough food to feed a small army.

He will be greatly missed by all members who will miss his wit and wisdom, he spent many a session watching over new members and beginners and helping people enjoy their sport.

Our thoughts are with John’s family, and with his archery family at Priory Archers.

It is with much regret that I must inform you that in light of the Government’s announcement today regarding the Covid-19 virus outbreak that I have to postpone the Intro to Field Archery Workshop (planned for the 21st March) and the Junior Development Session (planned for the 28th March) to some future dates yet to be decided.

Once we have a clearer picture and can rearrange the sessions, I will let you know.
