Sadly, All Sports in Eastgate Street, Gloucester, has closed down after owner Ron Meadows called time due to ill health after fifty years’ trading (GloucestershireLive). His colleagues, who are all in their 70s or 80s and have worked with him for decades, also felt unable to take over the running of the store due to personal circumstances. A sad loss to shooters in the area.
