On The Day


This year, the day will start a little later at 9.15 start with a bacon roll, kindly provided by John Robinson butchers in Stockbridge and served along with tea and coffee by our ever cheerful team.  Before shooting begins at 10am, Richard Faulds will provide a general safety briefing. If you are a beginner, we require you to attend a full safety briefing with an instructor from our partners BASC.


The shooting will be across a range of targets set out by Richard and his team and will include a 4 bird flush where all guns in your team shoot at the same time, as well as a 2 bird flush. In addition there will be the challenge of the pool shoot, a competition in itself, testing even the best shots attending.

At the end of the shooting, there will be a bar offering a range of drinks before you move through to the marquee for a delicious hog roast meal with pudding and wine, all served by our Cancer Research UK team.  After lunch, our auctioneer we will offer some amazing items to bid on, and we will draw the raffle.
