Mandy Chapman – Life President
Jean Kneller – Treasurer and Secretary
I joined the club in 2006 when I took part in the first beginner’s course. Since then, I have briefly shot recurve, compound (for about 10 years) before finally seeing the light and shooting longbow.
I’ve been on the committee for many years: ordinary member, records officer, treasurer and now secretary & treasurer.
Archery is my main hobby, but I also enjoy knitting and playing computer games – especially time-wasting city-building ones.
Andrew Nicholson – Membership Secretary
Alan Larkin – Records and Welfare Officer
I am a retired civil servant/toolmaker. I started Archery as part of a family activity with my Wife and Daughter after doing the beginners course I have embraced archery as a new hobby, after a year I took over as records officer. With the committees help I developed a better 252 scheme for all archer, I also run the winters frostbite shoot. I feel I am an active member of the club by helping out with the beginners courses and anything that is required for the club.

I joined the club circa 11 years ago after experiencing the joys of archery first shooting at my brother in laws club in Almere, Holland.
I took a break from archery due to work commitments and re joined our friendly club in 2019.
As a previous member on the committee, I have again taken this opportunity to represent the fellow archers of Sutton Bowmen in ensuring with my other committee members, our club continues to be the welcoming and right club for you.
Always happy to chat and share experiences.
