Laporte-CPC Customer Cartridge Recycling In Partnership with Agri.cycle

This low cost and efficient recycling scheme was designed to reduce the impact shooting has on the environment and to provide the lowest cost of disposal for the grounds. The scheme has gone from strength to strength, steadily growing at around 25 % a year as more grounds have become aware of its benefits and individual grounds volumes increase.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank all the participating CPC/Laporte customers who have successfully recycled their waste cartridges through our partnership with Agri.cycle Ltd. Together we recycled over 281 bags of waste cartridges over the last 12 months. This means approximately 6 million recycled cartridges, an amazing 25 % increase over the preceding year. It is a fantastic achievement that we can all be proud of.

Please, continue to think green and use this recycling service as it was set up to reduce the impact our amazing sport has on the environment, not to generate revenue. Keep it up and let’s see what we can achieve this year. Well done.

For any further information please contact 01949 843777.

Christmas comes early as Amber Hill meets Leah Southall

Christmas comes early as Amber Hill meets Leah Southall at E.J. Churchill and gives an insight into Skeet clay pigeon shooting and competing at the highest levels of the sport.

What a fantastic ambassador Amber Hill is for shooting sports. Not only is she an amazing shot who competed for her country in her first Olympic Games in Rio 2016, but also a very friendly and approachable person. She recently took time out of her busy schedule to meet Leah Southall at Amber’s local ground E. J. Churchill and provided Leah with very valuable insights into shooting at the highest level.

Leah Southall, aged thirteen, started shooting 8 months ago at the age of twelve and is now competing in major competitions. Although she has only just begun her amazing journey into competitive shooting she has already become county junior champion and has won a Ladies High Gun title at the Intercounty DTL championship hosted by Fauxdegla Shooting Ground in Wales, setting a personal best of 96/100 and contributing to the Staffordshire Ladies team winning silver. More recently she finished 1st in class C at Mid Wales Shooting Ground, shooting 91/272.

The two ladies spent their day at E. J. Churchill chatting about the sport, practising shooting different trap set ups and generally enjoying each other’s company. Amber had explained that one of the keys to success is setting a main goal, like shooting for your country, and breaking up that goal into smaller achievable short term goals in order to make the big dream come true. She then gave Leah a demonstration of how to shoot Olympic Skeet on her dedicated Laporte Olympic skeet traps set up. It was amazing to see how fast the Olympic set up was! Amber also provided Leah with opportunity to try the English skeet layout under her personal tuition. She was even kind enough to let Leah use her own Perazzi Gun and gave her a few boxes of her Eley cartridges to try. As the English skeet is a completely different discipline to trap shooting that Leah normally practices, I have to say I really admired Leah for rising to the challenge and having a go. Taking on board what Amber had to say it only took her a few targets before she started to smash those clays.

It was inspiring to spend an afternoon with these two talented ladies. What a treat to see them both in action. Thank you, Amber, for being so generous, and thank you, Leah, for taking on another new challenge.

As Leah’s dad, Mark, succinctly put it, “Amber made this Christmas very special for Leah. It has boosted her confidence to know that even the best have to manage nerves and deal with disappointment when you have the inevitable day that things don’t go quite as well as you planned. It has been fantastic for Leah to meet and talk to Amber who has inspired her dream to become at an Olympic shooter”. Lee Kirby, one of the top DTL shooters and personal coach to Leah Southall, added “meeting and shooting with Amber gave Leah a big confidence boost which is greatly appreciated”.

Get inspired and take up shooting! It teaches you control, discipline, and focus as well as being a very social and enjoyable sport.

Amber Hill - inspiring future generations in our sport. Sponsored by Laporte, the providers of target excellence for the last 8 consecutive Olympic games.
