November 2017. Nice to see that Kev and Gareth have been recognised by BCDP(Bridgend Coalition of Disabled People) for all their work with the VI shooting project. The photo is of Gareth and Kev receiving their awards at the recent presentation dinner with two of our shooters to the right, Stuart Clare and Kerry James.


The VI shooters have had some success with winning two gold medals and one silver in the National Postal leagues. Photo is of Kev Martin presenting a gold medal to Stuart Clare.

Best to have a look quickly as I don't know how long it will remain online. I have downloaded it and can embed it in this page so that we have it in perpetuity. I do need to get permission to do that, meanwhile, follow the link above and do let me know when the item disappears.


Ceri from the Bridgevis group receives some tuition from Gareth. The rifle is a Hammerli AR20 Target Air Rifle fitted with a Swarovski telecope sight that measures light and sends a high pitch note to the shooter to indicate the target centre.
