The Sealy Suite – The Crown Hotel, West St, Blandford Forum DT11 7AJ

Our members and supporters are invited to join us for this annual event.

Last year over 100 people enjoyed networking together and a full and interesting afternoon. This year we’re in Blandford to reflect that much of our work covers the county of Dorset, and our members are drawn from across the county. We look forward to catching up with old friends and colleagues and meeting new ones.
