The New Talent Supporting Target Shooting in Wales

Over the last few months the WTSF has recruited talented new people to both the staff and board. They have joined the organisation in a variety of paid and voluntary roles, and their skills and experience are having a real impact on how the WTSF functions and implements the new strategic plan for target shooting in Wales. The WTSF wants to thank and celebrate these people for their ongoing contributions to target shooting in Wales.
