Southrop Fete – Volunteers Required

Two volunteers needed for an afternoon to support a Have-A-Go.

Saturday 8th June 2019 at 14:00

Southrop Fete are expecting us again this year and Bob Gowland has already managed to rope in four volunteers to run the Have-A-Go so would two others be willing and able to support this event please? It starts at 14:00 so is only for the afternoon. We would need someone who can co-ordinate collection (and return) of all the appropriate equipment including the safety requirements from the hut and the set-up and break-down on site.

If you can help out could you please me know by the end of week please so that we can let Bob know and I can get the event registered with Archery GB.

Many thanks,


Club makes £203 at a local event.

Big thanks to the following people, and their families, for all their hard work and effort on the day of the County Show. It was hot and exhausting work.

URGENT – Help for Bampton

My name is Neil Holt and I am the chairman of Bampton Archery club, I also own my own Archery business “Cotswold Archery” which I run with my wife, out of Batsford Arboretum, Moreton in Marsh.

Cotswold Archery have secured a three day Have-AGo at archery activity at this years LECHLADE ANNUAL VINTAGE RALLY & COUNTRY SHOW, for the three days of this bank holiday weekend (Sat, Sun & Mon).

There is potentially a lot of money to made over these three days and we had hoped to join forces with Bampton Archery club members to promote the Club, our business and earn a few pennies.

Unfortunately the great response we were hoping for, from the Bampton Archery club members has not been forth coming and we find ourselves short handed with helpers.

We know this is on very short notice, but we would like to extend an offer to your club members to come in with us on this adventure.

Cotswold Archery will provide all equipment, float and insurance, we just need helpers throughout the days from 9am to 5pm taking money, collecting and sorting arrows, instructing and promoting Buscot Archery / Cotswold Archery.

You are more than welcome to bring any banners / leaflets to display throughout the weekend and we will inform the organiser that you will be attending with us, for any call outs throughout the show.

Cotswold Archery offer a chance for potentially archers of a minimum age 6 to shoot 6 arrows for £2 per person, instructed at all times.

We have 10 entry wristbands for any helpers, that can be used the whole weekend, all we ask is a minimum of 4 hours help at various times of the days over the whole weekend, not necessarily the same people, wristbands can be passed to other members for use, but are only for archery club members and not for family and friends.

There will be a deduction from the takings over the whole weekend of £300, the cost of the stand/plot, the rest will be split between Cotswold Archery, Buscot Archery and a small percentage to Bampton archers for the three people who have offered help on Saturday only.

We look forward to hearing from you by email or phone call.
