Information to stay safe whilst at Mill Farm

Mill Farm Lurgashall Open Clay Shoot 

Shoot starts at 10am with last entries at 13.00.

Cost is £20 per 50 Clays

We are pleased that the government has announced that outdoor sports, including clay target shooting, can re-open on 29 March and that our members can return to the sport that they love. We had hoped for an earlier date, given the arguments presented to the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport over the past year that outdoor sports can operate in a CV19 secure manner. However, we are thankful that shooting grounds and our sport can open up in the first phase of lockdown easing.

In line with the latest government guidance, shooting grounds can open for practice and CPSA Registered competitions can recommence from 29 March under CV19 secure guidance. Squads/groups of up to six shooters will be allowed to shoot together, so long as the Referee can safely distance from the squad. Further guidance will be issued within the next week.

This pandemic has not gone, it is potentially there for all of us and hopefully by following the guidelines given below we can work around minimising any potential risk. Should you or any of your close family experience the symptoms of coronavirus, please do not attend, stay away and self-isolate as stated by the Government Guidelines.  We would rather miss your presence for one shoot than miss it for good.

Should anyone display any inappropriate behaviour regarding the Rules we have put in place you will be asked to leave. We expect everybody to socially distance sticking to the 2m rule and continuing this during your time on the shoot as it states, Keep Smart – Keep Apart.

Whilst we feel we have put in place, as best to our ability preventative measures to make staff and customers safe, it is up to each visitor to be responsible for their own safety and to respect everyone-else attending Mill Farm Lurgashall.

Payments to be made by card whenever possible or correct change only. We accept Visa and MasterCard the limit is £45 on contactless payments. There will be no catering, tea or coffee, the only drinks available will be cold cans of soft drink. There will also be no toilet facilities available.

We run a fibre wad only policy. Should cartridges be required you can purchase these however you must bring your license with you. Have this ready and a photograph of your license will be taken and the details of which can then be added to our records for cartridge sales however the photograph will then be destroyed.

You will be expected to park in the area directed, please do not park on the driveway then make your way to the normal shoot room where you will be expected to hand sanitise obtain a card and make payment. We will be providing scorecards; however, no boards or pencils will be given out to use, therefore please bring your own.

Ideally, we would like everybody to start from stand one and continue along until they have completed all stands. However, when the shoot starts it makes more sense for people to be on all stands ready to start Shooting. We would ask those who book in first to go to set stands and be ready to shoot from 10 am. It would then be expected those groups to then continue in a numerical order onwards from that starting point this would mean that if you were positioned on stand three initially you would shoot all the way to the end and then go back to stand 1 and stand 2 to complete your round.

We will operate a one-way system only under no circumstances whatsoever does anyone deviate from this. We will always ask you to follow the green arrows when completing a stand then please move away distancing yourself between the next stand you are due to shoot.

We would also ask that the same person within the group always operates the buttons. The exception being when that person is shooting. We would ask you to make sure that hand sanitiser is utilised as required, even if you are wearing gloves the application of hand sanitiser is there to reduce the potential for somebody else not to contract the virus or increase exposure/spreading.

We will regularly sanitise all the buttons during the shoot should there be any concerns then please do not hesitate to contact Andrew on (07525) 012031

Please be aware that during the lockdown period we are experiencing a greater number of walkers, joggers, horse riders than at any time. They have every right to use the farm in a way which they deem appropriate and hopefully for their enjoyment. Obviously, areas where shooting takes place is away from those designated public spaces however we would expect you to maintain a level of appropriate social behaviour to all those on the farm.

If it is required, if it is a concern or maybe just a good idea then please give us your feedback as this would be very productive and helpful, to maintain a safe environment for all others.

Please remember that should there be any problems on the day to contact Andrew on (07525) 012031
