Join us for this year's AGM

We are pleased to invite our members to join us for our AGM to be held at Brooklands Farm, Forston, Dorchester DT2 7AA. This is your opportunity to hear about what your support has achieved in the last year, our plans for the future and to ask questions of our staff and trustees. We have also been reviewing our Articles of Association and are presenting the recommended changes to members to ensure that the Articles are up-to-date particularly in an increasingly digital world.
