Public and Member usage of Facilities

As an outcome of the COVID-19 Pandemic and the current government guidelines, WDMES public events have been suspended until further notice.

It is unlikely that we shall be able to recommence our Public Running Sundays and Party Bookings in 2020 and, reluctantly, we have decided to cancel the Santa Special Day.

Limited Member activities are taking place during the daytime on several days throughout the week, but the Thursday "Club Evenings" remain suspended until further notice.

Following an update of government regulations, all persons inside the Club-house or in the steaming bays must wear a face-mask.
