We are always looking for new members to keep our club active. Joining the club is a simple matter of making an application by giving us your details; we then put this to the Management Committee. Once your membership is approved and your fees are paid then your membership is completed. Inexperienced or novice archers must complete the beginner’s course before we will take their membership.
BEHAVIOUR ON THE WELBECK ESTATE
Access, Driving & Parking: Observe a 20 mph Speed Limit for all vehicles on the estate, respect all traffic junctions as if they were a public highway and be alert for other road users. Take particular care if you encounter livestock (horses, cattle, sheep, pheasant) on the estate, be prepared to slow down or stop and give particularly wide clearance so as not to give rise to concern.
Members and guests should park on the left of main drive approaching the Abbey no further than the ground access. When the weather is good and the ground is sufficiently dry members should park on the shooting ground immediately to the right of the access gate.
The grass on the ground entrance is easily rutted up by car tyres, so common sense should be your guide at all times, no wheel spins and dead slow at all times please, if in doubt; park on the main drive.
Welbeck Archers have permission to use the Abbey Bottoms and Lady Margaret Hall and to gain direct access through the estate from either the Lady Margaret Hall entrance or the Dukeries Garden Centre entrance for this purpose. Do not trespass in to other parts of the estate without express permission.
We are not allowed to bring any livestock on to the estate. It is preferred that domestic animals (cats, dogs) are not brought on to the estate but in any case they should be on a lead and under the owners control and certainly give no cause of concern to other livestock or other users on the estate.
AT ALL TIMES
Behave respectfully to residents and other users of the estate, remember at all times we are guests.
The Club applies the GNAS policy on Young Persons & Vulnerable Adults; a copy of this is available on request.
The Club has appointed a Protection Officer and Deputy Officer for Young Persons & Vulnerable Adults. Junior Members under 18 have to respect reasonable instructions from the Club for their own safety and wellbeing.
The Club, it’s Officers and Members can not accept the responsibility for care of persons less than 18 years of age (or vulnerable adults) unless this is expressly given and agreed. Therefore; members under the age of 18 years of age must be under the direct supervision of a parent/legal guardian or a person expressly nominated by a parent/legal guardian at all times. This includes transport to and from any activities organised by Welbeck Archers.
