Once there


Update the spinner on the main door to remind the archers not to lock you in.

If you are visiting before the archers arrive, there is a "Space open, please knock" sign just behind the sliding door. Please put this on the front door, so it can be left on the latch to prevent randoms walking into the range.


Please place all waste in the bins provided. The following can be recycled:

  • batteries (car and household - there is a box for these)
  • cans (please rinse)
  • cardboard (flattened brown and white cardboard, flattened cardboard boxes)
  • CDs and DVDs
  • fluorescent tubes and energy saving light bulbs
  • glass bottles and jars (clear, green and brown)
  • paper
  • plastic bags
  • plastic drink bottles
  • cardboard drinks cartons
  • tin foil

These will be taken away periodically. In addition, print cartridges can be taken to recycling centre resulting in a donation to charity - so you may like to keep these separate from other waste.

Locking up

  • close the door and change the spinner to 'the space is empty'.
