John’s funeral

This will take place on Thursday 05/08/2021 at 1pm.

There is capacity for 100 people inside with broadcast outside if required.

The family have requested no flowers but donations to Wakefield Hospice, where John was cared for in his final days, will be accepted.

We will be making a donation on behalf of the club.


We are not making any changes. The club will continue to operate as we have been, the one way system stays & social distancing still applies ( be sensible ). Only one person at a time in the portakabin to collect badges.Thank you.

John David Bennett

Today we lost our club secretary.

As most will know John had been struggling with an illness for quite some time. He had major surgery but the demons within beat him today.

R.I.P. John

Please read the PARC COVID-19 GUIDELINES for booking information.

This gives all the information required to be able to make a booking

Further information regarding 2020 probationary members & new membership will be posted in the near future. please check for updates on here & Facebook.

Due to the current lockdown situation (as of 10 January 2021), PARC will be remaining closed. This is likely to be until at least 31st March, though the committee will be monitoring the situation continually.

Membership fees will not be due until at least the 1st July 2021, though this could change yet again. The committee is looking at the level of fees, and will make a decision nearer the time. We will of course be taking into account the amount of shooting we have missed, but as yet we simply do not know just how much longer we will be closed.

Regrettably, the committee has had to make the decision that new members cannot be accepted for the foreseeable future, and definitely not whilst we operate under restrictions (as we did with bookings previously). This is in order to mitigate the risks to our existing membership.

Those members who paid in 2019, but were unable to renew in 2020 will be permitted to rejoin with no induction when the club opens. The fee will be set by the committee.

When the club opens, even under restrictions, we will permit the existing inductees on our books to finish their induction, but by invite only and in limited numbers at any one time. Inductees with 3 visits completed will be invited first, then those with 2, etc. Please note however that club guns will NOT be available.

PARC to Remain Closed For the Remainder of 2020

With the latest announcement by the government of most local areas to PARC dropping into T3 restrictions, effectively we are back at where we were immediately prior to the National lockdown.
This means that the committee has reiterated its decision to remain closed for the safety and protection of our members. This will be extended to the end of 2020. As always, we will review the situation, subject to government guidelines changing, as soon as possible.

Also, the committee has made the decision to extend this year’s membership until March 31st 2021. No subs will be due until after that date.

It is to be hoped that with the roll out of mass vaccination, we can achieve the magical ‘herd immunity’ that will finally kill off the pandemic and allow us to get back to ‘normality’ (what’s that?!) as soon as possible.

Club Closure From 00.01 Monday 2nd November Until Further Notice

The committee has made the decision to close PARC to all members from 00.01 on Monday 2nd November until further notice.
T3 restrictions mean we cannot remain open and comply with government guidelines. We also, of course, have a duty of care to all our members.
We hope you can understand the need for this course of action, and we can assure you we will monitor the situation and reopen at the earliest opportunity.

On behalf of the committee, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the marshals for their excellent work and diligent commitment. I have received a lot of comments from members who appreciate the hard work you have put in to ensure as safe an environment as possible.

Latest Restrictions

Due to the government’s latest round of tiered restrictions, PARC committee have made the decision to not allow members from TIER 3 areas to visit the club.
This has been done to protect the rest of our members in line with government guidelines.
Also, the guidelines state that travel into and out of restricted areas should be avoided if possible.

We regret the necessity of such decisions, but we must act in a responsible manner for the welfare of our members.
We will monitor the situation and amend the restrictions as and when we can.

Please Remember To Read Our PARC Covid-19 Guidelines Page
