A ladies only introduction to clay pigeon shooting and cake events takes place at Grange Farm Shooting in Peterborough on Saturday September 14.

The Shotgun & Chelsea Bun Club is the UK’s largest organisation of its kind and is fast gaining momentum.

The organisation holds three events a year at Grange Farm with the days suitable for absolute beginners to more experienced ladies.

Everything is provided from instruction to guns, cartridges to clays.

Victoria Knowles-Lacks, the Club founder said: “We love coming back to Grange Farm, we always have such a great day up here. We are all about taking the pressure off when it comes to clay shooting, we’re all girls together, we use low-recoil guns, so no need to worry about kick, the instructors are fab and we have rosettes for the highest scoring ladies and the best baker!”

The day costs £37.50 for members and £47.50 for non-members, places are fully inclusive of instruction, 30 cartridges, 30 clays, gun hire, insurance, protective equipment and cake.

No experience is needed and all ladies from about 7 – 70 are welcome.
