We are sad to report
that our club safety officer Brian Doherty has passed away after a short
illness. At only 59 it seems far too soon. Brian was a keen shooter for
most of his life and devoted a lot of time and effort to ensuring that the
club ranges and clay shoot were run safely for the benefit of our members
