Gloucestershire Archery Society was formed to support all archery clubs in Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, and Bristol.

Joyce Harding Salver

Joyce Harding, a member of Imperial Archers, was a keen Coach and encouraged archers at all levels of competence.  In memory of her achievements four silver salvers were purchased to be presented at the society's Annual General Meeting for the most improved archers - Gentleman, Lady, Junior Gentleman and Junior Lady.  The criteria for improvement is the highest reduction in an individual's outdoor handicap from the beginning of the year to the end of September.  All categories of bow type are included and the scheme is administered by the County Records Officer - Target.
