We are always very grateful to the helpers that we have at our events as without stewards and timekeepers we would not be able to have a successful event. But we need more helpers, if there is anyone who can spare some time on an event day please come along and give us a hand, you don’t need to know a lot about carriage driving as we’ll show you what we need. We also need people who could help us paint some obstacles.
