Archery enthusiasts target Burnham-On-Sea for annual tournament

Archery enthusiasts from across the south west gathered in Burnham-On-Sea this week to take part in an annual tournament.

Dozens of archers competed in the Autumn Longbow Tournament, held at the town's BASC sports ground.

Local competitors included Highbridge town councillor Alan Miller, pictured, who recently took up the sport.

"We had over 30 archers shooting at six targets over distances ranging from 50-80 yards. It was a successful, well supported event," Claire Burgess from Burnham Company of Archers told

The group welcomes new members to its weekly training sessions, which are held on Saturday mornings at the BASC Ground.
