Theft from midlands Archery Club

A friend has posted this on the NFAS Facebook page and I thought it worth promoting here.

“Fellow archers though these guys are not an NFAS club they are fellow archers and as such I post this sad email……

Ivanhoe archers last night was broken into and had all their 27 trainer bows and approx 200 arrows stolen the value to replace would be approx £3k, should any of you be approached regarding second hand goods please can you let me know so I can inform the police. This is a massive blow to our club so any information would be great full.

Kind regards

From what I understand Ivanhoe club are based in Ashby, Leicestershire, UK I don’t have a breakdown of the types of bows etc but please pass this message on to other clubs and contacts. It is a huge hit for any club.

In addition can I suggest everyone checks the security of their grounds and club stores. I know we used to tag our equipment with the clubs name in case it did go missing.

Thanks for reading
