Calling all ladies that shoot or would like to shoot

 

Lady Guns Group

Lady Guns Group

A new group - Devon and Somerset Lady Guns has been launched to help likeminded women get together, learn to or improve their shooting skills and generally have great fun!

The group has grown in number and now provides ladies with shooting coaching through two shooting schools - Ashcombe Adventure Centre, nr Exeter in Devon and Brooksbank, nr Cheddar in Somerset.

"This is a great opportunity for ladies interested in shooting who want to meet others that share their enthusiasm.  It doesn't matter whether or not you have ever shot a gun before - the group's members have different experiences of shooting, ranging from the experienced clay shooter, regular game shooters and complete beginners."  Says Debbie Ironside-Smith, Chairman of the new group.

The group intends to arrange regular coaching tuition days, practise days and social events.  Other activities might include team competitions, talks and game cookery evenings, gun dog training demonstrations.  As the group grows more activities will be arranged across the two counties and possibly beyond.  The possibilities are wide ranging and so it will be up to the group to decide what they are most interested in and would like to do!

Jamie Stewart, South West Regional Director of BASC says "This is an exciting opportunity for lady guns or those ladies aspiring to take up shooting in the South West to get involved. BASC are delighted to be associated with this initiative."

For more information or to join the group please contact Debbie Ironside-Smith on ironsidesmith@yahoo.co.uk or 01626 890450, or have a look at the group's Facebook page.

Simonsbath House

“Set in the splendour of the Barle Valley, Simonsbath is set in the heart of what the locals refer to as “Exmoor Proper”. Simonsbath House stood alone for over 150 years before the small hamlet developed in the 19th Century, with the local Church, St Lukes, built in 1856, presiding over the largest Parish in Somerset 56 square miles but with only 75 houses.”

The King John Inn is situated in the idyllic village of Tollard Royal on the Wiltshire/Dorset border. Named after one of King John's hunting lodges, this Victorian building was opened in 1859.
