Podimore Shooting Ground recently applied to South Somerset District Council to extend its opening hours, but was told that there was no record of its existence.
Owner Kevin Newton was asked to provide proof that clay shooting had taken place at High Farm in Yeovil, so Clay Shooting magazine trawled through library archives and found club listings and results from 1991.
Hopefully that should be proof enough that Podimore does exist, and done for a long time. Otherwise, plenty of people in the south west will have to explain where they have been most Sundays for the past 25 years.
We are also keeping our fingers crossed that the council agrees to the extended opening hours.
