Story

Looe rifle and pistol club.

Members of Looe rifle and pistol club have been devastated this week by the news that the clubhouse has suffered an arson attack. The clubhouse will now need to be completely rebuilt. Due to it's 1930's construction being mainly of wood it was impossible to get insurance of more than just the bare minimum, although any insurance money will be gratefully received it will be far from the amount needed for the rebuild.

In 2015 the club celebrated it's centenary, it has over 40 members, male, female, able bodied and disabled with an age range from teenagers to octogenarians all of whom are very keen to get it back up and running. Three members have just been asked to trial for the county team and were very much looking forward to the challenge.

A few people have suggested that setting up this page would be a good idea so I'm giving it a go. The club will be very grateful for any donations made so thank you very much if you are making one.

    Update on what's going on, we have put in for the clubhouse rebuild planning permission which should be granted by the end of February. We are busy raising funds in several different ways to try to get the money to cover all the things we want to do. It has been decided to go a little larger with the new clubhouse as this seems the sensible thing to do. The members are all greatly missing the club especially Tom, who's up in his eighties and lives alone, twice a week he would meet his friends there for a good chat but now he's stuck at home.

    I've lowered the target as I don't think we have much chance in getting to the higher one. it would be really nice if we could reach this one though. Thank you so much to all who have donated so far we are living in hopes that we will be able to rebuild at some point. Unfortunately our Facebook page was shut down at the most inconvenient time too, guess some anti gun person complained about it, but we will not let this deter us. Onward and upward.

    Thank you all so much for the donations that have been made so far, this is a fantastic response to the appeal. Several club members don't even know this is up and running yet, but I am sure that when they get told at tomorrow's meeting it will definitely restore they faith in people . . . there certainly are far more descent people about than bad ones. Thank you so all so much.
