Eriswell Lodge scooped the Gold Award for the Best Shooting Ground in the east region from Clay Shooting Magazine, with High Lodge Shooting Ground in Saxmundham coming runner-up.

The ground, near RAF Lakenheath, was reopened in April 2015 by father and son Nigel and Stuart Smith and now holds a range of competition shoots including two national events.

It also won bronze for National Best Breakfast and claimed silver for the National Best Skeet Facilities.

Stuart Smith said: “It’s a competition that is based solely around reader votes, which makes it all the more special to be mentioned as out customers really are our focus at Eriswell Lodge.
