A charity clay pigeon shoot in memory of a farm manager is being held for the second year in a row.

The Peter Barney Memorial Shoot raised more than £1,100 for the Guide Dogs UK charity last summer, and following its success the event is being repeated.

He was a keen shooter himself and his family and friends felt a memorial clay shoot was a fitting way to celebrate his life, while raising money for a worthy cause

Mr Barney (58), of Weston, who was a manager at Lincolnshire Field Products, died in October 2010, following an accident at his workplace.

He was a keen shooter himself and his family and friends felt a memorial clay shoot was a fitting way to celebrate his life, while raising money for a worthy cause.
