Ladies at The Hill head out for some archery!

The ladies at The Hill have discovered a new sport they all love – archery!

On Wednesdays, the Ladies Social & Recreational Squad venture from The Hill’s centre-based supports, getting out and about in the community. On this occasion, the group got to visit Feral Archery in Rutherford.

Archery is a fantastic sport that can be played by people of any age, skillset and ability. It’s a great way to practice hand-eye coordination, keep the body and mind active and as a team building activity. But, most important of all, archery is a lot of fun!

Each of the ladies got a turn aiming the bow and arrow and shooting targets, with help from the staff and support workers. Most of the ladies had never shot an arrow before, so this was a great chance to learn a new activity. The ladies had so much fun cheering each other on, supporting and encouraging everyone to do their best.

The activity was so successful that the ladies want to make archery a reoccurring activity that they will enjoy once a month!

The Hill is a purpose-built centre for lifestyle and leisure day service and activities catering for people with disability who have moderate to high support needs. Participants are assisted to develop their skills, achieve their goals and participate in the community.
