Seventeen teams of four took part in a clay shoot at the West Kent Shooting School on March 31 in aid of R.A.B.I. Sally Field, R.A.B.I regional manager for the South East, said: “This was the fourth time we’ve arranged this annual event, which was originally inspired by Simon Ayshford, one of our Kent committee members, who sadly passed away last year.”

The shoot raised more than £4,000 with sponsorship, a raffle and a sweepstake boosting overall profits.
The winning team was Kevin Howland and the Adisham Shoot and Michelle Nudds scooped the ladies’ ‘high gun’ prize. The gents’ high gun competition was jointly won by Peter Goldsmith and James Bradley. There was also prize for the team with the silliest name and the yoke was most definitely on The Easter Egg!
R.A.B.I would like to thank the West Kent Shooting School, Chavereys, Savills, Adrian Pink and FGS Agri for sponsoring the trophies and Biddenden Vineyard for kindly supplying sparkling wine for prizes. A donation to the Weald Hospice will also be made in memory of Simon Ayshford.
MANY HAPPY RETURNS: Will Harris, with Sally Field, celebrated his 89th birthday.
