Club reopening – 05/12/2020

With the recent national lock-down period coming to a close the club is reopening from 5th December 2020.

Don’t forget to email as before to book your place.

With the global crisis far from over, we are a very different shape for the foreseeable future.  Social distancing requirements have reduced the number of people we are able to have on site and restricted some of the social aspects of the club. We are operating within government guidelines.

Personal Health –  Obviously anyone who is unwell with cold or flu-like symptoms, (such as a high temperature, continuous cough, breathing difficulties), should follow government advice on testing and should not attend and stay at home until they’ve completed the recommended period of self-isolation and recovered fully.

Those who have recently been in close contact with someone with coronavirus, been contacted under track and trace or visited a high-risk area, should stay at home until they’ve completed the recommended period of self-isolation.

Shooting will be for members only and will remain Saturdays only. There will be a strict set of rules and controls in addition to our normal gun safety rules. These rules will be enforced.

To minimise any risk during booking in and paying fees for the day we are also now also accepting Contactless payment. During the current situation it is preferred that you pay using a Contactless card or Apple Pay or Google Pay

Look for the contactless symbol or either the front or the back of your card to see if you can make contactless payments.

If you do not have a Contactless payment option available to you please bring the correct cash (notes preferred)

Visitors that were part way through their probationary period should contact the Secretary and we will determine if progression to member can be facilitated. Unfortunately the current restrictions and limits on numbers mean we are unable to take first time visitors. By all means make contact with us to be put on a waiting list for us to contact when we are able to open the facility more.

We are pleased to be able to welcome our members back to the club and to get back to the sport we all love and with everyone’s help and cooperation we are sure we can all enjoy our shooting safely.

Lea Valley Airgun Club – COVID19: Rules and Controls

Lea Valley Airgun Club : Secretary

1st November 2020

Welcome

Lea Valley Airgun Club is considered by many to be the UK’s premier airgun shooting club and with a membership of around 180 it is certainly one of the most popular. First and foremost, Lea Valley is a fun place to shoot, whether it’s airgun target or clay target and a great place to meet like-minded people.

Some of our members travel considerable distances to attend on Saturdays and enjoy the club’s great facilities that we share with Lea Valley Shooting Association (LVSA). We are very fortunate in having several specially constructed ranges available which means that we are able to cater for a wide range of airgun shooting disciplines. Please see the Club Diary for information on the competitions we run each week and the News page for any week to week variations.

We share our grounds with LVSA so you will also hear and see people clay target shooting. Some of our members are also members of LVSA and are always happy talk to you with regards to clay shooting. For further information, you can always ask Alex if he is in his office at the side of the clubhouse or visit the LVSA website.

Club House

Our heated clubhouse has seating for in excess of 60 people, and also has flushing ladies and gents toilets. A range of reasonably priced hot food is freshly prepared until 1:00 pm and sometimes later. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are also available throughout the day, see the menu for prices.

It’s a great place to sit & chat, read the notice board, a magazine or just have a quick warm-up during the winter months.

Opening Times

The club operates throughout the year and is open only on Saturdays:

Summer months

from 9:00am to 4:00pm with the ranges closing at 3:30pm.

Winter months

we close earlier at 3:00pm with the ranges closing at 2:45.

Run by the members

As we are a club run by members and no one is paid to manage the club, please help to put the targets away at the end of the day. Your help is always needed and much appreciated. This applies to members and visitors alike.
