Last updated at 16:54, Friday, 01 February 2013
LONDON 2012 Olympic archer Alan Wills will fly into Barrow next week to launch a new club.
The Sellafield shooter will be the guest of honour as the Bowmen of Furness officially start life at Chetwynde School a week today.
The new club have access to both indoor and outdoor facilities and Wills – who competed in both the individual and teams events at Lord’s last summer – will be on hand to show off his skills and give advice to new members.
Bowmen of Furness secretary Philip Hopley, whose club have benefited from £2,920 of National Lottery funding from Sport England, said: “If seeing an Olympian up close shooting doesn’t inspire you, I don’t know what will.”
