Look after your mental health This is a stressful situation, which will undoubtedly have an impact on the mental well-being of some of our members, please click here for the most up to date guidance from the Mental Health Foundation for looking after your mental health during COVID-19.
Message from the NSPCC Childline: In these strange times with sport cancelled, schools closed and the Government encouraging us to socially isolate we need to be aware that many children may be isolated and therefore more vulnerable. Clubs are encouraged to use their links and methods of communicating with children and young people to promote the Childline. Childline (UK) www.childline.org.uk Tel: 0800 11 11
Please do not shoot at home We appreciate that our members, and a lot of our staff, want to get out and shoot, and some will think the logical answer is to shoot in your home or garden, but we are urging you not to. Please remember that you are not insured to physically shoot at home because Archery GB insurance only insures members shooting at Archery GB registered ranges. If you attend a venue that allows you to shoot, you must check that you are covered by the venue’s insurance or maintain your own. Once again, members are only insured to shoot at Archery GB registered ranges. We cannot manage the level of risk shooting at home, archery is a very safe sport because of the rules that we all adhere to. We cannot guarantee that home ranges will adhere to the rules of shooting and we don’t have the resources to carry out the relevant risk assessments.
