Unfortunately during the Coronavirus there has been little to celebrate in terms of our members archery achievements – then we have two announcements within the space of a week! Following Geoff’s remarkable shot on Thursday, I am now very pleased to be able to announce that Joe has cause for a double celebration of his own.
The consistent hard work that Joe Barton has put in has finally paid off, and he has now been awarded his Junior Bowman’s classification badge. No easy feat, and this is reflected in the fact that Joe becomes the first Junior Bowman that Ledbury Archery Club has had.
Joe’s consistent fine shooting and positive attitude has also been recognised by Wales Archery, who have now announced a sponsorship deal with Joe. Although it is always pleasing to see plenty of Ledbury Archery colours at external competitions I think it will also be a source of pride for the whole club that we have Joe representing us (when competitions resume) in Wales Archery livery!
Please join my congratulations to Joe for his achievements and also for continuing to ensure Ledbury Archery Club is firmly on the map in Herefordshire and the West Midlands. Stephanie is a very proud Mum!
