Course member

"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."
