The Club Range is situated in Rock Lane; a quiet country lane on the north-east edge of Hastings and Ore. The Club owns its own freehold premises and enjoys a wide road frontage, which leads to a large car park. The newly constructed 25 yard indoor range sits within a valley and is hidden from the car park and road. There is also an adjacent outdoor air rifle range. The object of the club is to provide facilities for and to promote and encourage participation and skill in the handling and recreational use of firearms and to promote the study and use of heritage firearms.
The current membership of the Club stands in excess of 450 members, but we would like to welcome new members, who we can easily accommodate in our spacious facilities. We have a thriving full-bore membership; air-rifle section and Juniors. All sections would welcome new members. There are various subscription concessions.Please refer to the Subscriptions and Fees section.
**** Security Reminder ******
Most of you will be aware by now of the tragic murder of two people in St Leonards on Friday evening and our thoughts go out to the victim’s families.
The early indications are that the firearm used was stolen. With this in mind we wanted to remind you of the notice that has been on the club room notice board for some time now regarding the potential for your firearms to be stolen while in transit. Our members show an enormous level of responsibility with their firearms but there are times when we all need to be especially vigilant.
Leaving your house, travelling and arriving at/leaving the club premises are times when you need to have a good situational awareness. Where possible, try to leave the club with at least one other member, especially on dark evenings so you’re not alone in the car park.
If you suspect you are being followed while transporting a firearm the Police advice is to find a police station (Hastings is open between 9am and 8pm) or a built up area to stop in and dial 999; if you have a passenger they could do this as you drive.
Thankfully incidents of this nature are extremely rare- let’s try to make them even more so.
