The home of wildfowling in Newcastle and the North East
Newcastle Wildfowler's Association was formed in 1960 to help protect and promote wildfowling and all other forms of sport shooting. We quickly became affiliated to WAGBI, now BASC. This relationship has continued for over fifty years and we continue to assist BASC at many events throughout the year, be it roadshows, country fairs or young shots days.
We are a small club with a busy annual programme of social activities, these activities are centered around our monthly meetings at a pub in South Northumberland and range from social nights to formal talks presented by experts in their particular field.
Between these monthly meetings, during the summer, we also organise clay pigeon shoots to help keep our eye in. These culminate in three trophy shoots for members - all light-hearted fun.
If you have an interest in wildfowling or shooting in a more general way, please get in touch, we will probably have what you're looking for.
