A record breaking competition for Amelia Chumber at the Oxford Archers Team Challenge 2021. 

Barebow Junior archer for Braintree Bowmen,  Amelia claimed a UK Junior record and a European Cadet Womens record with a score of 543. 

Amelia broke her own UK U18 Junior record and set a new European record for the WA50 Barebow round (subject to ratification).

Amelia continues to fly the flag for Barebow archery at both County and National level, consistently shooting at a top level which her scores always reflect. 

Thanks as ever go to her club and everyone who  supports Amelia behind the scenes.  Special mention to her coach Richard Burgess for his time and invaluable training through a difficult season. 

Another great result for Essex County.

Good afternoon all,

You will remember that last week I passed on the sad news of the passing of Sheila. I now have details of the funeral arrangements for those who wish to attend.

Sheila's funeral will be held on Tuesday 7th September at Corbett Tay Crematorium, at 1:40pm.


Good morning all,

Once again I find myself in the position of having to pass on sad news to the County. 

Sheila Wiltshire, of Broxhill Archers and HDSA has passed away. Sheila had been unwell for some time and suffered from heart failure.

Sheila had her husband Dave had made great contributions to archery in the county, in particular in their work with juniors and archers with disabilities. She will be sadly missed by many.

Funeral details have not yet been released, but I will pass these on as soon as I have them.
