The Executive Directors are keen to engage with shareholders and they intend to maintain communication with institutional shareholders through individual meetings, particularly following publication of the Group's interim and full year preliminary results. Through these meetings, the Board is able to gain feedback to have a clear understanding of the views of the major shareholders, and the needs of potential shareholders so that these can be considered.

We would normally encourage private shareholders to attend the AGM at which the Group's activities are considered and questions answered. However, the AGM held on 10 February 2021 was a closed meeting due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. We introduced a facility for questions to be emailed to Shareholders can always e-mail directly. Peter Kenyon, CEO was interviewed by James Lynch from Downing LLP, in April 2019, hear what they had to say here.

The Non-Executive Directors are available to discuss any matters stakeholders might wish to raise, and the Chairman and Non-Executive Directors will, and have, attended meetings with institutional investors.

Following the last AGM the votes cast were included in our subsequent RNS announcement. Please see here.
