The Club Needs Your Help - Today!

As you may know a planning application has been submitted to RBWM for us to move to a new location in Holyport.

Unfortunately, there were some objections made to the Council which are listed on their website. Click here

Unfortunately, it is too late to make comments, but it's not too late to write to your Councillor, see here

You should also write to your MP

Some of the concerns raised by neighbours are listed below and sadly some of the residents are ill informed and making assumptions without any fact base and we need you to write your support and to negate these falsehoods. At the Parish Council meeting yesterday the councillor presenting the application for review admitted that she was “completely ignorant”. For example she stated that  upwards of 70 cars would be on site at any one time. This is just one example of how the facts are being misrepresented. Residents concerns that are unjustified:

Light pollution – they believe they will be football style floodlighting. There will not.

Unsightly bunding – these will be planted

Disturbance to wildlife – we share our current range with all sorts of wildlife including bats, birds, rabbits and deer.

Noise pollution – sound report says none. Our current neighbours didn’t know we were there.

Construction traffic – will not go up Gays Lane

Increased traffic – negligible. How many members do we actually get at any one time

Disturbance to joggers / walker / cyclists – we already share Braywick park with all of these very happily

Security and safety – we all know that our clubs safety is all of our primary concern

Disturbance to Equine – negligible

Things to include in your statement:

Long history of safe and neighbourly sporting activity

Support for Sportable

Regular Scouts and other local group visits

Membership diversity and family memberships


Please write to your Councillor and MP NOW and state your support for this application and why.

 

... Watch This Space

 Maidenhead Target Shooting Club (MTSC) has some of the best airgun and rimfire shooting ranges in the south east.

Our outdoor ranges let you shoot at 25 yard, 50 metre, and 100 yard distances. We also have an indoor international standard 10 metre range for air pistol and precision air rifle shooting.

We can offer a wide selection of guns and equipment for you to use at the Club.

Many of our members are nationally accredited Range Control Officers, ensuring the highest safety standards. We also have qualified instructors and coaches in all shooting disciplines, and we offer a structured training program for new members.

Precision target shooting is one of the safest sports, yet very rewarding. It also features as an Olympic sport.

With practice and time you can reach a very high standard. Many of our members compete at national level, some in the international GB squads, and some are  candidates for Olympic places.

We are a friendly club and we want to help you enjoy the sport, to have fun and to offer you the facilities, environment and training to help you achieve your goals.

You are welcome to contact us to arrange a visit or to join the Induction programme.


 If you would like to phone us, please call 07856 857 900

We hope to see you soon.
