New:12th March 2021

Just thought I’d show off some of the trophy’s I’ve won over the years.

Not enough room on the shelf…so Mick is putting up another!

(Yeah! Yeah! You know what they say about ‘if you’ve got it-flaunt it!’)

Mick at the Antiques Roadshow

Mick’s Car !

Although absolutely nothing to do with archery…I had to put up some photo’s of Mick’s single seat road (NOT a racing) car that he has just finished making.

He started it about 10 years ago, but due to bowel cancer (now in remission); a new hip; a broken tendon in his left foot and weeks in hospital with pneumonia and blood-clots; its been a long time in the making.

He has made all of it including the moulds for the bodywork. The frame; the wishbones  (whatever they are!); And all the stuff that needed welding; plus most of the wiring which he hated doing!

Now, although still on crutches most of the time, He’s building a Trike and wants to build a Tiger Moth airplane. So for his 80th Birthday I got him flying lessons!

To say I’m a proud wifey is an understatement!!

SMUG I think !!!

I thought I’d get a few more colours in the Dacron B50 that I use for making strings.

Before you ask…I don’t make strings out of Fast-Flight’ or any related material!

I don’t like what it does to the wooden bows

Dacron B50. The larger yellowy spool is actually VERY bright orange.


Well the lockdown has done one thing…I’ve been able to tidy the range and re-do the garden and veggie patch.

Lets hope I can use the range again soon!

I’ve now built an outdoor covered area by the range…so at least we can be dry when outside.

(Me on the roof doing the sealant!)


Easy to use and spin…it has an integral tensioner, so doesn’t come loose as you spin it.

My Mick is now hand making traditional crossbows.

No sights and shot with wood bolts and feathers.

These bows have fibreglass prods and are fun to shoot.

Much lighter to carry than most modern xbows, they are ideal for those who now struggle to draw a ‘normal’ bow.

£520 including cocking aid and bolt puller.

Lft. Colonel Jack Churchill’s Longbow. Used in WW11 which we took to the Antiques Roadshow.

Due to Mick not going out during this ‘lockdown’, he’s started doing his ‘Roses and Castles’canal painting again.

It’s ages since he did any, but he hasn’t lost his touch.

He’s painted LOADS since March. Loads of souls sending him stuff to do. Keeps him quiet in the evenings!
