COVID-19 Range Restrictions Lifted

COVID-19 Range Restrictions Lifted from Monday 19th July

Following the recent Government announcement of a ‘cautious’ lifting of the remaining COVID-19 restrictions, the GA Sneedham’s Green range will be returning to 18 lanes without compulsory social distancing on Monday 19th July.

Please be aware that Lanes 1 & 2 and Lanes 17 & 18 are for targets set at 50m only.

A non-shooting Range Officer is still required when four or more are shooting at the same time.

As we keep being reminded, the pandemic is by no means over and cases are rising rapidly. If you feel in any way uncomfortable about returning to ‘join the line’ at Sneedham’s Green, and especially if you are not sure about your COVID-19 protection/infection status, please do not make the trip.
