Phishing/Scam email regarding VIP membership

Further to the phishing/scam emails being received by members, we don't believe the membership database has been breached, as a number of recipient email addresses are not stored in the membership database. As far as we can tell, it is only email addresses that have been accessed and the breach could have come from a number of sources, and is currently impossible to track down. The NFAS will never ask for money through links in emails. Importantly no payment/bank details are at risk as these are processed by WorldPay - the NFAS has never stored or processed online payments. Just like phishing/scam emails from banks, or links in 'Messenger' or 'WhatsApp', please do not click on anything and ignore and delete.

Aurura Charity Shoot

3rd September 2023

Charity shoot in support of St Clare's Hospice in memory of our friend and much-loved club member, David Searle who passed away on 1st May. This will include an auction of some of Dave's bows including a 44# longbow "Bear Claw" by artisan bowyer Marc Grady - more details to follow.

This is also the third and final round of our 2023 Aurora Triple Crown series with six archers still in the running to win free entry into all of our shoots next year, a specially designed trophy each, and of course eternal glory!

This shoot is going to be a standard Big Game format with the shots being much more "open" and forgiving than our Master Archer shoot in March, although please don't make the mistake of confusing "open" with "easy"!

2 x 20 3D course

10.00am START


NO Camping


PRE-PAY - details at end of booking

Entry fee: £10 Adults. Juniors and Cubs shoot Free

Book now following this link or via our website at - we look forward to extending you our legendary Aurora welcome.

Same course as the 23rd April with maybe a few peg changes. Normal 3 arrows first time round and 1 arrow second time round. And yes it is Fathers day, but I believe all parenst/Grandparents should be allowed to enjoy their respectective Days. 2X20 double pegged 3Ds 2Ds. £10 entry fee pay on day. Teas, coffee and cakes will be available. Please contact Scott King if you wish to enter
