The event takes place at Grange Farm, Wittering Grange, Wansford, near Peterborough, on Saturday, February 22, from 10am-2pm.

The day starts with introductions, after which the girls are split in to small groups and taught how to shoot a variety of clay targets, safely and under instruction.

Once the shooting is over, the girls regroup for a well earned cup of tea and slice of cake.

Scorecards are counted up and prizes will be presented to the highest scorers - and the all-important rosette goes to the best cake.

A variety of cakes are on offer following the tuition.A variety of cakes are on offer following the tuition.

Victoria Knowles-Lacks, club founder, said: “The idea behind the club is to bring ladies together, who wouldn’t normally have a go at shooting and make it fun, accessible and affordable.

“No experience is needed and all equipment is included in the price. The event will be really friendly and the perfect way to meet likeminded ladies, try clay shooting and have a fun few hours ‘me’ time.”

The day costs £47.50 and includes 30 cartridges, 30 clays, gun hire, insurance, protective equipment and cake.
