SHOOTING, archery, falconry and ferret handling were on the agenda for youngsters as they attended a sports taster weekend.

The event was held by non-profit organisation Pass It On at The Bungalow Inn in Redhill and gave 167 children the chance to try their hand at a variety of country sports and traditional crafts.

Pass It On chairman Rob Collins said: “There was a sea of smiling faces throughout the day and evening and I truly believe we inspired a lot of new people into field sports.

“There were children from the age of two years old having a go at the activities up to a lady of 83 who now wants to take up air rifle target shooting.”
