BAKEWELL BOWS Theft reward offered 

By now many in the archery community in the UK and beyond will have heard of the theft from Bakewell Bows. I’ve been in touch with Dawn Priestly who has been publishing updates and she’s furnished me with the following information and images.

As thousands of you are now aware Pete Bakewell (Bakewell Bows) of Welbeck Estate in Nottinghamshire was broken into last Thursday night / Friday morning. They took all his finished stock, hand and power tools amongst other things. They also took our unique and irreplaceable family bows.
The response to my original post has been phenomenal and the support shown to Pete and Sam above and beyond anything we could have hoped for. Thank you, each and every one of you.

We need to keep the pressure on those cretinous beings that have done this, they need to be brought to justice.

Pete is offering a REWARD; in return for information leading to a successful prosecution against the person(s) responsible of this most despicable crime; the person offering the relevant information will be able to choose one bow of their choice from Pete’s catalogue, hand crafted to their specifications.

Please share this far and wide and keep vigilant.

If the persons responsible for this crime are reading this, please just return what isn’t yours.

If you have any information please contact either myself or Nottinghamshire Police on 101 and quote incident number 19627102017.

Again thank you all for your help and support.

Below are photos of bows similar to some of those stolen.

Let’s hope the greater archery community can help, please help to get the message out.

Thanks for reading.

Happy New Year to all readers and followers. I hope everyone had a good Christmas and wasn’t as unfortunate as myself who is still recovering from flu which I had over Christmas and New Year.

Sadly it’s not a great start for my good friend, fellow club member and coaching buddy, Andy who had his car broken into yesterday and had nearly all his archery gear stolen.
I’ve included  the text 0f his posting on the NFAS Facebook group which provides a description of all the stolen items below along with a picture Andy has given me of him shooting the bow.
