DCF Video Updates 2020

Many of us have had to do things differently this year and our annual meeting is no exception.

This year we will be bringing you a selection of short updates and presentations about all of our projects and a selection of some of the key projects being delivered by our members along the Dorset Coast.

We’re disappointed to not be holding our traditional annual meeting as it’s always a pleasure to connect with you, our members, spark discussion and bring you the latest research and projects going on along the coast. We will be doing a much more interactive event next Spring…so watch this space!

In the meantime, we encourage you to take a break from all those video calls  and enjoy this selection of short films.
