A charity clay pigeon shoot in memory of a farm manager is being held at a Bourne estate.

The Peter Barney Memorial Shoot raised more than £1,100 for the Guide Dogs UK charity last summer, and following its success the event is being repeated.

Mr Barney, 58, of Weston, near Spalding, who was a manager at Lincolnshire Field Products, died in October 2010, following an accident at his workplace.

He was a keen shooter himself and his family and friends felt a memorial clay shoot was a fitting way to celebrate his life, while raising money for a worthy cause.

This year’s competition, in support of the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, takes place at Grimsthorpe Estate Shooting Ground, from 9.30am to 1pm on Sunday, October 25.

Entry for the 50 bird sporting competition is £20 and competitors are welcome to shoot more than one round.
