About Us

WHO I AM

For the majority of my adult life up until reaching my late 30’s I worked in high pressure jobs that I hated and which utterly destroyed my mental health and very nearly my life.

I am still trying to recover, a daily battle, in a war I will never win.

Archery helps me to tread a delicate path. When I’m on a shooting line I am in the here and now of the shot. Nothing has been able to calm my mind like this.

This site is my attempt to give a little back, to a wonderful sport, and the amazing people that continue to supported me, and are understanding of my quirkiness.

Arrows!

MY HISTORY

2019/20

Learn more, shoot better, have some stability in my mental health.

Investigate the possibilities and opportunities of making arrows for people.

2018, why not before?

Was taken along to a archery beginners course at Canford Magna Bowmen by my wife, who has wanted to do archery for a number of years.  It took a lot of work to get me to go, but it was probably the best thing I have since being so ill.

2006 ish, the inevitable implosion

Two major breakdowns, and the beginning of a long period of darkness from which i was lucky to survive.

1987

Started work, and changing jobs on a regular basis, chasing the elusive ‘happiness and respect’, we are told a job brings us. All it brought was higher pressure, higher stress and no life other than work, work, work all hours of the day and night.
