Carriage Driving 2018


It is with the greatest of sadness that we report the passing of Catherine Aicken following a short illness. A stalwart driving steward, Catherine attended many meets over the years with her husband Malcolm and dog Echo. She was always very warm and welcoming to everyone at Windsor Park and nothing was too much trouble for her, she could turn her hand to any of the roles that needed someone and our meets will simply not be the same without her. Our deepest condolences to Malcolm and her family at this very difficult time.

Her funeral will be held at the City of London Crematorium, North Chapel, at 12:15 on Tuesday 4 September there will be refreshments afterwards at 69 Lauriston Road, London, E9 7HA. Malcolm has requested an indication of who can attend please e-mail r.m.aickin@lineone.net. No flowers please. There will be a collection in aid of 2 local charities."



WPEC are pleased to announce that we have a new date for the 2018 Charity Drive. Following the postponement of the event back in April due to the bad weather, we have been working with The Crown Estate to reschedule this popular event. We will now be running on Sunday 23rd September 2018.

Please see the dates and schedules page for the entry form. Entries CLOSE 10th Sept.

If you entered the event back in April, please can we ask that you resubmit your entry using the new form so that we know who is intending on attending. Where possible we will try to allocate you the same time as April, but we will inform you of your time prior to the event. When resubmitting your form, please send in a S.A.E so that we can send you your pass for the day and your times.

If you need any further information, please contact Denis Williams on jorricstud@aol.com or call 01753 577 969

Our 2 day May meet clashes with the Royal Wedding, As such the committee have had to reduce the event to a one day event which will be run on Sunday 20th May. We are planning a training morning (trainers will be Dick Lane, Jeff Bannister and Caroline Douglas) followed by an indoor out type event in the afternoon. There will be no pleasure drive as the park will still be under restrictions and heightened security following the Royal Wedding. Please get your entries in as soon as possible.
