David Sprigg, RIP

Jul 15, 2021

David Sprigg passed away on Wednesday afternoon this week.

He had been ill for some time but only recently stepped down from his committee role as LSR captain and other shooting responsibilities. Many will also know David through Bookham Rifle Club and his influential involvement with the club’s major redevelopment, as well inspiring the establishment of the ground-breaking Target Shooting School, which continues to grow in Surrey and Kent.

David will be greatly missed and his wife Dee has asked me to pass this news on to anyone who knew him in the shooting world he enjoyed so much.
