Rifle-shooting won't be so heavy going now!

Chichester Rifle Club have received a grant from Sport England towards the purchase of target rifles for their junior members.

Four young members of the rifle club who will benefit from the grant

The grant has enabled the club to acquire four lightweight small-bore rifles. Until now junior members have had to use the much heavier rifles used by adult members.

This is a very significant improvement to the facilities offered to junior members, who are aged 12 to 18.
