Following on sadly from John’s news, that means for many of us we have lost our friend who battled illness on her terms and bravely also decided when to stop on her terms.
Whilst we are heartbroken at what this means to us and the club we are mostly holding in our hearts all of her family but, as they are also an important part of our club family, in particular we think of John, Karen and Darren who we will be here for when they need us.
Whilst I appreciate that not everyone has had the chance to meet and know her, for many of us she has been a friend, valued committee member and club and county squad member.
I invite you all to fill the page with photos and memories of her so that those who didn’t meet her can now have a chance to know her.
A tribute page has been setup and streaming of the funeral will be held at 1pm on the 24th March 2021. Please share any photos and/or stories either on the facebook page or on the tribute site.

2020 is going to be a massive year for every Olympic and Paralympic sport, however, we want all of our members to feel the benefits of the Games. That is why we are introducing a campaign called Improve Your Game.
Improve Your Game is a series of informative articles, blogs, and videos. They will be created by archers, for archers. It is aimed at all levels of archers who want to improve, learn or develop within our wonderful sport. We will be covering as many topics as possible across the year.
Every Monday we will release content to help as many of you as possible with the different topics. Throughout the year, we will cover topics for recurve, compound, barebow, and longbow, target, 3D, clout and field, with p ara and able-bodied elements. We will also be incorporating elements of strength and conditioning to help guide with that side of the sport, which can sometimes be overlooked.
These articles, blogs, and videos will be available to everyone via our website and social media channels, and also in Archery UK.
If you would like to help us and fellow Archery GB members with writing an article, please get in touch with Sophie Meering on firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you would like to write about!
