The Home Office requires that all Rifle Clubs maintain a record of all those that shoot at the Club and the firearms used. This means that details of applicants will be forwarded to the Licensing Police Authority for Membership approval.
The applicant must satisfactorily complete the probationary period that is not less than that prescribed by the Home Office, before full membership can be granted. Probationary periods may be extended if the Committee feels it necessary to fully assess competency.
Members names and competition scores may be held on computer by the MSBRA and by the NSRA and may be published on their relevant websites. We urge members to review their Privacy Policies.
The Club adheres to the guidance issued by the NSRA on the protection of children and vulnerable adults in target shooting and requires all coaches and helpers working with minors and vulnerable adults to have Disclosure and Background clearance.
HRC reserves the right to decline membership without explanation.
Anyone who behaves in an unsafe or an inappropriate manner will be required to immediately leave the premises and may be reported to the NSRA and/or the Police.
