Testimonial

I've been a member of WMDG for many years during which time I've seen the sport change quite a lot. Safety has risen up the agenda as demanded by our insurers but still the sport continues to offer excitement and challenge with great social interaction. The club's affiliation to our governing body British Carriagedriving ensures that standards are maintained and our members are welcomed by other local clubs because they have demonstrated competency. Our new website, combined with BACS payments, is designed to provide members with paperless ease of entering events and helping provide WMDG with a bright future.
