Lydd Rifle Club
Lydd Rifle Club is formed from a relatively small group of individuals from all walks of life and a broad spectrum of ages who share a common interest in the sport of shooting. Although primarily a full bore rifle club our members enjoy shooting a wide range of weapons including .22rimfire, Gallery rifle (under lever carbines), black powder pistol/rifle, and full bore rifle both sporting and target. We also have a healthy contingent of members dedicated to old military weapons from both World Wars.
We shoot twice a month on Military Ranges at Hythe and Lydd with ranges varying from 25yds to 1,100yds. On occasions we arrange for a day at Bisley for any members who fancy a change of venue and between our shoots get together for a day at a local clay shoot for anyone who is interested. Whilst we take the sport seriously we also try to ensure that everybody has a good enjoyable day. Our aim is to promote to sport of shooting in all its various forms and encourage the safe handling and ownership of firearms by responsible citizens.
In line with the Government lock down all shooting is currently suspended. Once we are informed by the NRA/Landmarc on or after 2nd December we will notify you all.

Due to a large interest in new membership enquires we are currently not accepting any new members into the club. As soon as this changes we will put a notice up here.
Can all Members please provide Ian with your full name and date of birth as soon as possible. This is now a requirement of our insurance. Anyone that doesn't provide this will not be covered by the clubs insurance and thus will not be able to shoot with us.
In light of the ongoing pandemic we need all members to exercise common sense. If you have any flu like symptoms or think you’ve had exposure to anyone that’s been in any of the hotspots then please stay away. We have a number of members who because of age or underlying health issues are in the high risk category for this virus.
We will continue to monitor the situation and if we hear anything official from either Landmarc or the MOD we will of course let you all know immediately.
The Governments advice is as follows:
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
1) a high temperature
2) a new continuous cough
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
your condition gets worse
your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
How coronavirus is spread
Because it's a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person.
Similar viruses are spread in cough droplets.
It's very unlikely it can be spread through things like packages or food.
How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus
Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
Always wash your hands when you get home or into work.
Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
Put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards.
Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
Treatment for coronavirus
There is currently no specific treatment for coronavirus.
Antibiotics do not help, as they do not work against viruses.
Treatment aims to relieve the symptoms while your body fights the illness.
You'll need to stay in isolation, away from other people, until you have recovered.
