Spinners Mill Portsmouth

A great day at Spinners Mill for their Portsmouth tournament. A lovely venue, set in the heritage site of Leigh Spinners Mill, one of the largest cotton spinning mills in Greater Manchester, a grade 2 listed building that is still partly in use as a manufacturing mill.

The Longbow Club was out again looking for silverware and they did not disappoint with Katrina Horton taking 1st Lady Longbow, Ian Stowell 1st Gent Longbow and Chris Eccles 2nd Gent Longbow.

Kendal Longbow Western

First outdoor target competition of the year and and a great day at Kendal Bowmen’s Longbow Western. Weather was a lot better than it could have been (gales had died down, no snow like last year and the mud not nearly as deep as the year before!). Katrina Horton won trophies for Best Gold and “Most Hits for a Lady not in Top 3”. Chris Eccles, Alison Williams and Katrina Horton prizes in the raffle. Steve Williams’ bowstand was much admired! Great fun and lovely company and the refreshments were brilliant as usual so thanks to everyone at Kendal Bowmen for another enjoyable day!
