BEGINNERS COURSE - JULY 2016:
Another group of 'would be' archers have successfully completed our Beginners course and are on their way to fulfilling their ambitions. A number of them had no hesitation and joined the Club the same day!
"Having completed the Beginners Course at Harvester Archers I now feel much more knowledgeable and confident than ever before"

BEGINNERS COURSE - MARCH 2016:
Having completed their course these ten new archers are set to enjoy a life long activity. This was also the first course run by our four newest coaches so it is congratulations to everyone for a very enjoyable and successful course.
'Had a great time, coaches were excellent'
'All well organised, coaches were in plenty and very approachable'
"Both my wife and I have been looking for an activity that we could both compete in, archery was our choice. We have been told about the Harvester Archers training course so decided to give it a try. The welcome we recieved was fantastic and we felt right at home immeadiatly. The training was excellent and all technical and health and saftey issues were explained in full. Both of us are now members of the club and have bought our own equipment, other members are always on hand to share their expertise and to assist with further training and coaching.
This was a superb decision and we are both addicted to the sport."
