For further information on how to join our club contact secretary
We have 3 types of membership - Full, Family, Junior
Full - any individual over 18 years
Family - up to four members of one family who are individually accepted for membership
Junior - any person between the ages 14-18 years
We do not publish membership fees. These will be advised to individuals by club officials.
We do not operate a waiting list. Anybody who is interested in shooting is welcome to join the club as a probationary member (once membership is re-opened). However, we need to get to know you first and find out a bit about you.
We need you to be proposed by a full club member. If you know such a member already then there is no problem. If you do not know someone then one of our committee members will propose you once we have satisfied ourselves about you.
You will be required to sign a declaration stating that you are not prohibited from being in possession of firearms or ammunition.
We will need 2 x passport sized photographs for each prospective member.
You will normally be a probationary member for at least 6 months. We are required to make an assessment of your level of commitment and general character during this period and to base the decision regarding full membership upon this assessment.
Once you are a full member you can normally apply for your own Firearms Certificate if you wish.
