Any other business
Mr Gamble read out Shareholder’s Questions and pre-prepared answers on behalf of the Board of Directors (please find detailed below).
Questions received from Mr J. E. Barker:
Why do we not meet in the evening to let more shareholders be present? Monday at 9am is very difficult especially to use the M6.
With over 900 shareholders, many of whom do not live locally, it will always be a challenge to set an AGM time and date that suits everyone. The AGM has been held on a Monday morning at 9am for many years now and is deemed to be the most practical to conduct the business required for all those who choose to attend.
How do we nearly always make a profit of between £10,000 and £26,000 when transfer fees do not appear in the accounts?
Club Answer: To clarify, if a transfer fee is received it will be treated correctly as an income in the Profit & Loss Account.
The meeting was declared closed at 09:15 am.
