Peter Newbery

It is with great sadness that HAA announce the death of Peter Newbery. Peter died suddenly on Saturday 1st of September following a heart attack. Peter was the Secretary of the Hertfordshire Archery Association, our County Child Protection Officer and he also ran this website. Peter brought to all of these roles an unflagging enthusiasm, dedication and diligence. A longstanding member of Abbey Bowmen, he served as their Chairman for 7 years and Treasurer for the last 2. He was a club coach and taught a large number of their members in the many beginners courses in which he was involved as well as helping with County squad coaching. Whether working with him in the various committees or shooting with him on the line, we will remember Peter as a true gentleman and friend, with a gentle authority and a dry sense of humour. Everyone who knew him is deeply saddened, and our thoughts at this time go to his wife and family.
