New owners and range Atherton Indoor Range (AIR)

Hello, I'm one of the two new owners of Atherton Indoor Range (AIR) in Greater Manchester and I'm trying to let people know about the changes in ownership and management, as well as the changes being made to the range.

Atherton Indoor Range is a friendly all weather, all year indoor airgun range. The range is 42yds with a 10 metre pistol range. We have many different targets (spinners, bells, sound reactive) as well as paper targets at varying distances, perfect for zeroing your gun. Prone position shooting is available. The range has something for everyone, whether you are a serious shooter, or just want a bit of plinking. We have just reduced range fees to £6, and there is no time limit set on the range, you can shoot all day if you have the energy! Free air fills for guns is included in the range fee. Bottles are filled at a charge of £3.50 for anything up to and including 7ltr, and £5 for 8ltr to 12ltr. Gun fills where no range fee has been paid are a charge of £1 per gun. We are currently refurbishing the range to improve the facilities and the general shooting experience. We are building a new social area where you will be able to order hot food (hot and cold drinks are already available), and watch a bit of TV or have a chat with your fellow shooters. We are also building what will be a fully stocked shop (pellets are already available at very competitive prices) so you will be able to try a gun before you buy it! Our first gun available for hire an Evanix Blizzard S10 arrived 16/04/14 for an additional charge of £5 (pellets are not included). We are hoping to run a young guns nights in the future for our younger shooters, so that they can meet other younger shooters. We will also be hosting charity events and organised competitions in the future.

Thank you very much Stoatman! Very much appreciated!
Almost a shame that I don't live in UK, sounds interesting.
After over 400 new targets were installed on our existing rifle range last Monday in part one of our range refurbishment (which resulted in our shooters dubbing it 'Spin City'), I'm pleased to finally announce that a brand new 75 yard indoor range is under construction to complement the existing ranges at Atherton Indoor Range (A.I.R). We have constantly been making improvements to the range since taking it over in April2014, and we will continue to improve and expand what we offer.
