An archery club who had all of its equipment stolen last year has said it will run a hugely popular course this spring.
Wheathampstead Archery Club has made a determined commitment to running its have-a-go session and beginners course this year despite the theft of bows, arrows and other accessories worth an estimated £2,000 last October.
Children aged 10 upwards and accompanied by parents as well as adults are warmly invited to the free have-a-go session on Saturday March 12.
The session, which will be overseen by qualified and accredited coaches, will run from 12 noon to 4pm at Folly Fields.
The four week beginner course starts on April 9.

Club chairman and head coach Tony Cobb said: “The theft of our equipment was a big setback, especially because we put so much voluntary effort in to offering archery for young people.
“But club members and supporters have been generous in loaning kit and getting the club back up and running, and we shall have all we need for our spring events.
