People will be saddened to learn of the death of one of our long-standing members, Albert Fenton, who died on 20th August, 2016 after a short illness.
What can I say, other than at the last shoot Albert attended, the Havering over 45s Shoot in July, he took home another gold medal to add to his collection.
Albert had been with us since around 1978 and I remember a bunch of us going to Tom Foy’s Archery Shop in Hawkhurst, Kent with Albie, his wife Joan and George and Edie Brown to get their first set of equipment after they joined us, Where does the time go?!
Over the years, Albert could always be relied on to support Ardleigh at League Matches (or anywhere else, come to that) , either by shooting with us or just to coming and have a look and a chat. He was “always there” and he will be much missed.
Below are the archers selected to take part in this year’s SCAS intercounty Match being held in Oxford. I would like to congratulate them all and wish them the best of luck.

ArcheryGB held the European Championships and CQT at Nottingnham between the 21st and 29th May 2016 and Essex were well represented.
Daisy Clark was shooting in the Ladies Compound category and was part of the GBR team (with Andrea Gales and Naomi Jones) who made it through to the finals in the very centre of Nottingham coming fourth after a close match against the Netherlands in a fantastic venue.
Essex were also well represented in the Judges and volunteers with Steve Johnson and Paul Clark taking charge of a number of team matches along with the Continental Judges and Richard Pilkington acting as Assistant DoS.
The event was one of the best people had ever seen - high praise indeed from officials who travel the world at such events and the question being asked is what can the team do next?
Whatever it is I hope I can be involved as it was great fun even if it was very hard work!
Congratulations to Jess Sagoo who has been selected to represent GB at the World University Championships in Mongolia in June.
Jess shoots for Oakfield Archers and has also represented Essex in a number of shoots

I had a request from Alan Goodsman at Holdens Archers about their triumph in Divsion 4 of the Andy Harris League this year:-
I know this is not normally an item that is shown on the website, but Holdens very rarely win anything. Can you put up our team photo with the Top Lady Archer on the site.
The team is from left to right:- Brian Noakes, Steve Waterfield, Helena Rabaca Kuller, Hans-Jorg Kuller Rabaca and Derek Simmons.
Thanking you in advance.
Alan Goodsman Holdens Archers Club Secretary.
Happy to oblige Alan and congratulations to everyone who shot in this years Andy Harris
