Congratulations to our latest group of beginners who dodged the showers, showing some great technique and all successfully completed their beginners' course. We're looking forward to seeing them in the future at the field.

Not to forget to give a big shout out to the members helping with it all and making it possible.


St. Sebastian Archers held their summer taster session and 14 hardy souls withstood the hot summer sun and had two hours of fun at the range. Everyone did really well and enjoyed the afternoon with smiles all round. Many of them have now enrolled for our beginners' course at the end of the month. We look forward to seeing them again soon. Also a big thanks to the members that made it all possible.


The Platinum Jubilee saw St. Sebastian Archers play host to our neighbouring club, Bowmen of Chesterfield, for a jubilee fun shoot. Archers, both experienced and novices, had a great afternoon in the June sunshine and enjoyed the chance to meet other archers and also have some great food. For the novice archers, it was also a chance to experience the tournament atmosphere.


Well done to our latest group of beginners, improving their technique, trying some longbow shooting and finishing off with balloon bursting fun. the end of the day gave us eleven new members. we look forward to seeing them all at the field.

Many thanks to coaches and members that made it all possible.

It was great to see such a full field taking part in St. Sebastian's spring taster session. All had a fun afternoon in the April sunshine and all enjoyed their introduction to archery. Here's hoping that it's not the last we'll see of them all. Also a big thanks to all our members that mucked in and made it all possible.
