Ray Goring

10th November 1952 - 17th September 2021 Ray joined the club in May 2015 and was our club treasurer for many years, Our Good friend and fellow archer sadly passed away on September 17th after losing his long term battle with cancer.

Ray was a real gentleman and always had a smile on his face, He soon made friends and fitted right in with many a pint of real ale at the railway inn.

Ray's Son Tom soon joined in and in a bid to give up smoking he turned to vaping, Unfortunately it was like having Thomas the Tank engine on site and we needed to go downwind.
Ray became a very good bowyer and stringmaker, and soon was in great demand making new strings for everybody in the club and beyond.

He made and built up a range of bows of various weight but settled on a trusty 55lb one in the end.

Ray will be greatly missed by us all.
