Dr. Will Ward, CART CIO for Dorset, has provided info on the Came Park Patrol from Dorset.

You have the chance to take part in a unique event that allows you to learn more about the Auxiliary Units from the comfort of your own home.

CART is planning to hold a ‘virtual’ online conference in 2012 which will see some of the country’s leading researchers on the Auxiliary Units give talks over 12 hours.

The event will utilise simple downloadable software which will allow you to see the speaker, chat in a live chat window to them and others and view PowerPoint slides etc.

Before we can plan this event we need YOUR feedback. Please have your say about the event here
