My old club chairman from Black Arrow has contacted me about a theft from a midlands based club and I thought I would try and raise peoples awareness of it here.
Burton Bridge Archers, Burton-on-Trent, have had their club house / storage locker broken in and all our beginners bows, arrows, tabs and arm guards had been stolen. Some 60+ bows (including 6 compounds and several lightweight longbows kindly made and donated by their club chairman) .
Please could you pass this on to any clubs you are involved with, especially those in the midlands area of the UK. So they can be on the lookout for second hand equipment suddenly appearing for sale (mainly used wooden riser trainer recurves). My guess is it will appear on eBay or car boot sales.
I wish them all the luck in finding those responsible.
Thanks for reading.
