The outdoor range is now open on Saturday and Sunday each week as usual.
Indoor Range – Re-opening
The government have officially announced that Step 2 on their roadmap out of lockdown will begin, as planned, on 12 April. This means we can confirm that the club will be re-opening the indoor ranges from Tuesday 13 April and follows the successful re-opening of the outdoor range over the Easter weekend.
The Covid safety protocols we developed last year remain in force and all visitors must observe them. Pre-booking is essential.
The booking system is now open for the indoor and outdoor ranges. [Book appointment]
Sessions are available until mid-May but more will be added as we progress through the steps.
See Calendar for details. [Link to Calendar]
For those who have forgotten how the sessions are organised, here is the timetable we try to work to for each range on the days they are open. [Link to Timetable]
Please Note: This is a guide. The Duty Officer has absolute control over the range and may, at their discretion, vary the timings to ensure the safe and effective operation of the range, should the situation warrant it.
Unfortunately, the current regulations prohibit us from introducing or accepting new members. This may change with Step 3 (mid-May) but it is more likely to be June/July before we are in a position to resume our training programme.
