Tondu Target Shooting Club - official opening of new indoor air gun shooting range

Following the visit, Huw commented:

"It was a pleasure to visit Tondu Target Shooting Club for the official opening of the new Tom Baggott airgun range which features three returning targets and two electronic targets.

Well done to the club members for opening this new facility, which is a great tribute to their late friend Tom.

The club has been open since 1876, and whilst the membership fee may have increased from the two and a half old pence fee of 1905 - it still provides a safe and welcoming venue for those who are interested in the sport of target shooting, and probably some of the best competition galleries in Wales.

The last time I visited the club, was when they opened a shooting gallery specifically adapted for those with visually-impairments, making the sport more widely accessible to all.

My thanks to everyone for the warm welcome ... and my apologies for my own appalling marksmanship!"
