Dear members, it is with great sadness that we must report the death of Margaret Hammond, and our thoughts are with all Maggie's family and friends at this difficult time.
URGENT NOTIFICATION - Please disregard previous EGM notification
The EGM that was proposed for the 16th December will not now take place, and the change of club status to the Limited Company format will now be dealt with as part of the 2020 AGM.
URGENT NOTIFICATION OF INSURANCE LIMITATIONS
All members please take note that it has come to my attention through investigations done by Bookham Rifle Club that the club's NSRA insurance does not cover solo range users. For the club's insurance to be effective there must be at least two members present on the range.
If you want to shoot alone you are still welcome to do so BUT you must have your own 3rd party insurance in place. Obviously the risks you take by shooting alone at Headley Park will remain unchanged – if you injure yourself your chances of getting help are very slim – mobile coverage in the area is very poor and it is very likely that you might die given the seriousness of most gunshot wounds. If you are happy to accept this and the other risks associated with solo shooting and have your own insurance cover (available for less than £20 a year) the club is very happy for you to continue to shoot on your own.
Rod Philpott Hon. Sec. HPRPC
Please read this note on limits for shotguns when shooting at HPR&PC.

New self-declaration requirement for home loaders
If you home load ammunition, you will be required to sign a declaration form at your next membership renewal (or earlier if you are joining/have just joined our club).
We are introducing this requirement to comply with conditions placed on us by our insurers. Please see the NSRA Code of Practice for Handloading Firearms Ammunition for more information.
