Another Bath member, Gillian Aghajan, was part of the bronze medal-winning Welsh team.
MacDonald reached the quarter-finals of the individual epee, which attracted a strong field of 46 fencers. He topped the podium in the team event, though, after England edged out Australia in an exciting clash.
Hutchison is competing alongside fellow Bath members Sue Benney, Sue Brooks and Andy and Lynne Bornemisza at the World Veterans Championships in Krems, Austria, this week.
