04/10/2018: Pit range has reopened : Message from the club secretary
I filled in the subsided ground around the sump pump and its associated pipework yesterday and the range is again fit for use.
Heavy rain will no doubt wash more sand down into the existing soakaway and you will need to fill this in as and when until it stabilises so I suggest keeping a shovel handy in one of the sheds.
Best regards and good shooting, Rod
It is with sadness that we must report the death of Bernie Peters who passed away peacefully at Frimley Park hospital on 13th September, aged 79.

31/07/2018: Important message from the club secretary
With immediate effect the Pit range will be closed with the exemption of Clay Pigeon shooting that may continue.
I have taken this decision following the work done on the new sump pump and particularly the installation of a steel grid rather than the wooden one specified. The new sump pump and range will now need to be brought to a satisfactory standard and re-inspected before any shooting with firearms can recommence.
Added a new Range Maintenance page with some photos of the recent maintenance work.
Afternoons of 16th, 17th & 18th July: A few more days work is still needed on the ranges whilst the weather holds. Please contact Tim Gardener if you are available and to confirm attendance and times.
The pit range sump pump is being installed this Tuesday and Wednesday (10th/11th July) and we plan to have maintenance days at the same time.
All volunteers, please coordinate with Tim Gardener by email. The weather should be perfect, if not a little too hot, so please bring plenty of water to drink as well as test the new pump !
It would be helpful if members could bring water to the range in large containers over the next few days so we can test the Pit Pump.
Please coordinate with Tim Gardener re. this activity.
It is with sadness that we must report the death of Rick Cushing who passed away peacefully at home on 6th of June. Rick had been a member of HPR&PC for 30 years.
