Gipping Valley Archers is an independent organisation that hires facilities from Stowmarket Golf Centre. All the team you will meet during your training are members of the GVA Club and are unpaid volunteer.  All money raised from training is paid into club funds so that we can promote archery in the local community, pay the costs of range hire, maintain our equipment, and replace consumables.
