Charlotte Anderson moved up from Hassocks Cubs to Scouts in September 2016 and was game to have a go at the new activities on offer. During late September through to mid November weekly Rifle shooting practices were held with the eventual aim to choose 8 scouts to represent the Group in the 2016 District Rifle Shooting Competition. Charlotte tried this out and really enjoyed participating. She impressed us with her attitude and willingness to learn. With her good results in practice she was chosen for the Hassocks team.
In 2018 she came in the top 4 in the District Competition and again represented the District in the County competition.She plays several sports, but shooting is by far her favourite – She is very grateful to the Scouts for giving me this opportunity, and would recommend shooting to anyone.
If you have the chance to do it – you should!
