Is John the Oldest Archer in Essex?

On 26th September members of Abbey Bowmen gathered at their indoor barn venue to celebrate and wish John Farrant a Happy 90th Birthday.

He even brought along his bow to shoot after having some cake and a glass of shandy, as he still enjoys shooting his recurve bow as much as he can.



John is also the clubs longest standing member for almost 37 years (next February).

John must be one of if not the the oldest active archer in Essex and probably the UK!!

p.s. If you know an archer who is older than John then let us know!
