The amount of parking at Juniper is limited - this will be controlled by the club with priority given to disabled users. Once the car park is deemed full - shooters MUST drive a bit further down the road to the garden centre car park and park there, then walk back. Parking on the verge opposite the club is not permitted and the police are likely to be called if people try to do this, and then they will have to move.
There will be hot food and drink available at the shoot.
