The Club’s present range and clubhouse were constructed in 1946 and are now very much in need of replacement. We have prepared plans for a new clubhouse to include an indoor 25-yard range together with facilities currently lacking such as a purpose built armoury, kitchen and accessible toilet. We will also re-open the disused outdoors 50m range including provision of a firing point building. Following receipt of grant funding we are now able to proceed with Phase 1 during 2019 and are continuing to work on planning and funding for Phase 2.
Funded by EDF Hinkley Point C CIM Fund in conjuction with West Somerset Council, and by the Co-op Community Fund, Somerset West Lottery and by the generosity of our own Club Members
This first phase will include the reinstatement of the old 50m range and construction of a new firing point building together with various external works such as improvements to the access lane, provision of an interim car park and connection to the mains water supply. There will also be some initial planting and landscaping and provision of a number of nesting boxes within the existing woodland area that is not part of the new works. Planning permission has been granted for Phase 1.
Phase 2 will comprise the new clubhouse and 25-yard indoor range together with completion of the car park, landscaping and minor improvements to the access lane and its dry stone retaining walls. The drawings show the proposed site layout and the clubhouse.
