Additional information about Denwood

Equipment storage:

Due to the increase in the number of competitors attending events and the amount of kit they are bringing it has been necessary to restrict the use of the Armoury at Denwood by visitors to the storage of rifles and ammunition only. These must be in locked cases or boxes. Mats and bags will not be allowed in the Armoury but space will be made available for them to be left within the building.

Also, as part of a number of measures being taken to improve the security of the facility for all users, an automatic closer has been fitted on the Armoury door. There will always be someone at the range who can open the Armoury but competitors should be aware that they may be shooting and make due allowance.
