The Grove Shooting Club, based in Stutton, once again held its annual charity clay pigeon shoot at Hill Farm in Chelmondiston earlier this month.

The day was well supported and a great success with over eighty rounds being shot in the glorious sunshine.

This year's set up was once again challenging with a five pairs of clay pigeons being shot on five different stands. There was also the chance the novices to have a go on a separate stand. 

The winner was Jasper Pearce with a score of 47, closely followed by Tony Rogers, Jamie Pearce and Chris Willis who all scored 45.

This meant that there were three generations of the same family amongst the prize winners.

Monies raised from previous shoots have gone to various local good causes including BikeActive, Stutton School, Acorn Village, the Woodland Trust and Stutton Phone Box Defibrillator.

This year the club is planning to make a donation which will split between Acorn Village in Mistley and another local charity.

The club's thanks go out to all involved, especially the Cordle family for use of the beautiful location on Hill Farm.

The club is hoping to continue this annual event at the same location and a similar time next year.
