Change of time for archery/crossbow

posted 13 Sep 2017, 08:52 by Bernard Purdy

With John and Iris's agreement, the management of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Centre (QDJC) are looking into a change of day and time for the archery (including crossbow). They hope that, as part of an overall plan, with support from the centre staff, this will allow both the archery and our other activities to grow.
They feel that it will be easier to run the archery without other activities in the hall and that it will free up space in the hall on a Saturday morning for the program of events that they hope to introduce
There are no plans to change the admission charge that our members pay, so it will stay at £2.10 for the archery or the Saturday morning sessions

The committee of Rugby Sport for the Disabled Association (RSDA) have met with the Relief Manager and Community Sport Officer of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Centre (QDJC) and had a very helpful discussion on the way forward.
More details will become available in the coming weeks, but GLL  would like RSDA to continue, very much in its current form with support from GLL.
They will be able to provide much help in the way of training, marketing and funding opportunities.
The committee feel that the future of RSDA now looks vey much brighter than it has done for a long time.
We will keep you up to date with developments as they happen
