Louth And District Disabled Archery Club (LADDAC) held a successful Have A Go day at their Louth Town Football Ground home in Saltfleetby.

The event was as part of a national drive by Archery GB Clubs to get more people participating in archery as a sport and activity.

The event attracted many people from the East Lindsey district who joined the club members on their archery range day.

Club chairman Richard Smith welcomed East Lindsey District Council chairman Stuart Watson and councillor Pauline Watson to the event and introduced them to Blind Archer Stuart Rodgers, of Sutton–on–Sea.

Under the auspices of Archery GB, LADDAC endeavour to enhance the archery experience for current members and allow people of all abilities to take part in the sport.

If you missed the event, LADDAC will welcome you to any of their club days, on Tuesdays from 6pm to 8pm, and noon to 4pm on Saturdays, at Louth Town Football Ground.
