Our local leader, Laura, is a qualified archery instructor
I’m Laura, a Rainbow, Brownie and Ranger leader here in Somerset. I am also a qualified Archery GB instructor in the county!
Laura is very happy to run an introductory archery session for any unit. She can run a fun and safe session teaching girls the basic skills of archery with a combination of games and challenges to keep everyone engaged throughout.
Although we don’t have any of our own equipment in the county, we can hire a range and equipment at any suitable location and she can run a session for your unit (usually at a reduced cost as most places charge extra for an instructor).
Huish Woods Scout Campsite, West Hatch have a range and equipment that can be hired to run a session. This is a great place which Laura has used before but if you know of any other places, let her know and we can arrange something.
Unfortunately, Laura is unable to run archery sessions for Rainbows due to Girlguiding’s guidance.
If you’d like an archery session with your unit, please contact me by email at email@example.com.
