THEFT – Break in at Bowmen of Minchinhampton.


Dear Fellow Archery Clubs,

The Bowmen of Minchinhampton’s shipping container was broken into on Tuesday night. It was a professional job, since the hasps of heavy padlocks were severed with a portable angle grinder. We have lost about twenty Rolan training bows. If any of you are approached by someone offering a large quantity of cheap training bows, please could you let me know. More importantly, please could you report any such approach to Gloucestershire Police under Incident Number 319/130814.


Thanks for your help. We are installing specialised Container Padlocks to try and deter further attacks.
