Budding Archers enjoy free coaching sessions

Around 50 budding archers enjoyed the free coaching sessions offered by Whitby Company of Archers on Sunday 11th July as part of the Archery GB Big Weekend. Nearly 100 people from as young as 3, to over 80 were out at Eskdale School in Whitby, taking part in a range of archery based fun activities.

The younger ones were able to take on the Sheriff of Nottingham hiding in his castle, with the older ones having a go at target archery guided by the club coaches. The event was supported by North Yorkshire County Council Supporting Communities Fund, whose help funded some new equipment and made sure that the event could take place in a covid safe environment.
