Griffin Archers endeavour to be transparent to all of our members. Club updates go out to everyone as soon as possible. We send newsletters, have a WhatsApp group for our members and use emails to ensure everyone has the information.

Our governance is essential to the smooth running of the club, and we take this very seriously. It is very important to every one of our members, and collectively, we do our very best to look after both the club and its members. Club updates are provided in whatever form is acceptable to the membership.

It’s the duty of every sports club to take measures to ensure that all participants, volunteers and visitors can enjoy their sport in a safe environment. We continually assess and re-assess all of the environmental factors associated with providing a safe place for people to shoot. Risk assessment documents are updated yearly, and at any time when a change is made to our venue. Both physical and mental welfare is important to us, and we endeavour to provide a safe haven for all of our members and visitors.
