I was lucky enough to have been brought up in the fine traditions of the countryside and with game and clay shooting. At WLSS, we seek to continue these traditions and values that my grandfather began so long ago. Why are we still here today? The team seek to offer you the best in terms of personal service and attention to detail. This is what has brought generations of clients back and I am sure will continue to do so in the future. In addition to our teaching facilities, we also offer an outstanding range of Corporate Packages, a great restaurant – Stanburys, ‘Game Flyer’ Simulated Game Days and a well-stocked shop to suit all the needs of modern day shooting. We continue with our improvements to the layout of our splendid grounds, which now comprise well over a hundred traps and stands. With the high standards demanded of our instructors, our aim is to continue to put something back into the sport that has given not only our clients but also us, so much pride and enjoyment over the years.
