Valentine’s Press Release

Calling all cupids this Valentine’s to shoot authentic bows and arrows

The Now Strike Archers are a friendly group of likeminded individuals who meet up every Sunday morning from 11am onwards just outside of Chelmsford at Boyton Hall, Roxwell to shoot with their longbows and arrows.

The club has recently started and is open to anyone from the age of 10 – 80. It’s run by Now Strike Archery Ltd and currently has 12 members, but they would really like to encourage even more cupids from across the county to join this valentines.

The club is designed for archers who are not well served by traditional archery clubs and people who enjoy shooting with a traditional longbow.

Adam Jenkins – Co-Director of Now Strike Archery Ltd says “anyone is welcome to come along and have a go with a longbow for a couple of weeks before deciding if the club is for them. It’s a chance to meet other people who enjoy the sport and also good for making new friends. If you don’t have your own equipment then we can lend this to you and if you decide to join the club you can hire your longbow and arrows for a small fee. It’s the perfect time of the year to consider doing something new so why not come along”.

Now Strike Archery Ltd offers historical interpretation and demonstration centred on the hundred year’s war period with demonstrations of living history and use of the traditional weapons. In addition we offer hands on experiences in traditional crafts and archery offering bow and arrow making courses followed by a Masterclass in the use of traditional bows and arrows.

We attend many events throughout the country offering have a go with a longbow and giving demonstrations and can provide corporate/team building days, experience days, birthday parties, weddings, as well as giving talks and demonstrations to various groups, associations and schools. We also make traditional bows and arrows and these can be purchased via our website.
