The Harden Gun Club has celebrated the end of another highly successful season, holding their annual presentation on Sunday. The day was a successful one, and saw members recognised for the achievements and contributions throughout the year.
“It’s been a good year. Our attendance is up, and the presentation went off well,” according to Peter Allen, the club’s secretary. Looking to 2018, the club is already thinking of their annual charity shoot, to be held in April. 2018 will also see priority placed on further growing the club’s numbers, with a particular focus on getting attracting junior members.
“We need kids who want to get involved and parents who can support them. The big thing is kids who want to get involved but don’t know how to get started, I’d suggest they contact anyone on the committee, in particular myself or Rod Howe,” Peter said.
