Budding bowmen and aspiring archers are invited to try out archery at Marshland Archers, on Saturday – even if they have never picked up a bow and arrow before.

Archery GB’s Big Weekend, in association with Foresters Friendly Society, will see around 80 clubs across the country open their doors to potential archers. With over 5,000 members of the public set to take part and around 30,000 arrows to be shot in total, it is a UK-wide event.

Not only will visitors be able to try out a new sport, they will also have the opportunity to meet new friends. At each event there will be plenty of current club members to lend a hand and chat about how they got started in archery. Marshland Archers has been running for only a few months and has already increased its membership.

Young and old are welcome to take part in archery on a weekly basis.

Marshland Archers is located at Walpole Community Centre, Summer Close, Walpole St Andrew, PE14 7JW. All equipment will be provided, all participants need to do is bring along £3 which gets them 12 arrows. To find out more about the Big Weekend, please visit www.archerygb.org/bigweekend.
