Norman has a great set up and is an excellent instructor. Clear and straight forward instruction will have you hitting the clays in no time. I thought it was really great and would like to have regular lessons.

We went clay pigeon shooting for my husband's birthday. Norman is such a patient teacher (useful for when you're not that skilled!) and he made it a really enjoyable and relaxing experience. We'd thoroughly recommend this as a great activity if you're in the area.

I have had plenty of instruction over the years but Norman was a real standout. Simple and sensible with immediate results. My three boys - 11, 13 and 16 - also thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Highly recommended.

I got my 13 yr old a shooting lesson for his birthday. Norman was brilliant. No frills set up/great teaching/huge amount of patience. My boy loved it and was hitting clays regularly. Thank you. We’ll be back.
