Olympian among guests

Rio 2016 Olympic hopeful Tom Barber and former Olympic swimmer Nick Gillingham MBE, will be among the guests at Saint Edmunds’ Archers Open Day on Sunday.

The club, which was founded in 2007, will be holding an invitation only event at Whepstead Community Centre (11am-3pm) for families to try their hand at archery, as well as experienced competition archers to demonstrate their skills.

The club are hoping to provide a Centre of Excellence archery facility consisting of an ecologically sound indoor range with club room and 100-yard outdoor range with full disabled access, with the view of fulfilling an Olympic legacy across East Anglia.
