29/11/2022: New Shooting Venue, Bothamsall
It is with regret and at the same time some excitement that Welbeck Archers report that we have moved location. After being part of the Welbeck Estate for over 50 years we were presented with conditions in the latest agreement imposed on us by the estate that made our continuance there impossible. Negotiations with them proved fruitless and so we began a search for a new field/facility. We are please to announce that this has been found and is now up and running.
Our New location is on the old cricket field at Bothamsall.
Post code DN22 8DX.

Lat/Long. 53.251707N. 0.981047W
The Trust that administers the field has been extremely welcoming and we look forwards to a happy and longterm partnership. The new field is fully compliant with the regulations and we will therefore be able to resume our WRC status competitions. We will in the future also be putting on field and Clout events. These can now be practiced as part of our normal weekly schedule.
During summertime we shoot Tuesday and Thursday evening from 5pm and all day Saturdays and Sundays from 9am until dusk.
During wintertime we shoot all day Saturday and Sunday from 9am until dusk, plus once a week indoors at Cuckney Cricket training facility from 7pm – 9 pm on a Tuesday.
We are now open for business and any visiting archers or clubs who wish to contact us are able to do so via this web site. Anyone considering joining the club is always welcome to come along and view our facilities.

We received the following from British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK after the donation we made in memory of Christine.
Archery GB also awarded Christine a Special Recognition award in coaching, which you can see here.
18/02/2022: Four Seasons shoot rescheduled
On occasions as an organizer of events difficult decisions have to be made that will not please all archers. Due to the extreme weather forecast this weekend it is with regret that I have no other option but to cancel the Four Seasons shoot on Sunday for the safety of all and defer it to the following Sunday 27th Feb. Registration same time 10-10.30.
Sorry for the late notification but I had everything crossed that the shoot could continue but nature has had the last word.
Normal weekend shooting continues for those brave soles that wish to do so.
13/12/2021: Please do not park on the field
It is quite apparent that some members are unaware or choose to ignore the request not to park on the field at present due to the poor condition.
We have already lost one venue, please do not give the Estate reason to move us from Lady Margaret Hall field.
PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE FIELD until further notice.
19/08/2021: In Memory of Christine Gascoigne
As we could only have 30 people in attendance for Christine’s funeral, both family and club members decided that when covid restrictions were eased or lifted for larger gatherings that we would have a celebration of life memorial competition and fun day.
Christine gave her time freely. She was always patient, coaching both new beginners and Olympians with the same all giving gentile manner. Her style of coaching inspired her archers to achieve their potential in archery and life.
Christine’s birth place was in Stratford upon Avon Warwickshire, so the round to be held will be a short Warwick. 2 dozen at 50 & 40 yds, we are hoping the shorter distance will help many of you that are out of practice.
This is to be a fun day and for none competitors we are putting on a have ago with both normal and 3D targets. After the 50 yards at about 12 noon, although this may depend on how many lost arrows need to be found?
Christine’s Bowyers have made out of Oak a Memorial bench in her honour and this will be unveiled in its glory between 12 and 1 pm.
Charge your glasses for a toast to Chrissie, our Coach and mentor.
