It’s with much regret, I have to report the death of the President of the Bowmen of Ardleigh, Tom Hall, on 26th November 2023, at the age of 98

Tom was our last remaining Founder Member from the first days of our Club in the early 1950s.  Together with his brother Jack and others, Tom had been looking around for a ground, having tried nomadically in several places and eventually found a likely looking spot at the back of the Ardleigh House Community Association.  This was in the days when the original Ardleigh House was still there and from that our Club was named “The Bowmen of Ardleigh”.
