Mr Barry Palmer is due to retire under this Rule and offers himself for re-election, and this will be proposed by Sophie Cope and seconded by Peter Railton.

11. Confirmation of New Directors appointed since last General Meeting: the Memorandum and Articles of Association of the Company require that the appointments of Directors appointed by the Board of Directors since the last General Meeting be submitted to the Members for approval, and accordingly the following appointments are proposed for confirmation: (i) Roger Booth – proposed by Barry Palmer seconded by Peter Railton (ii) Sophie Cope – proposed by Roger Booth seconded by Peter Railton (iii) Jonathan Redshaw – proposed by Sophie Cope seconded by Roger Booth

12. Any Member wishing to be proposed for appointment to the Board must submit his/her proposal in writing to the Secretary not less than 7 days prior to the meeting naming his/her proposer and seconder and all three must attend the Meeting

13. Associate Directors – Introduction and Explanation (Note): Since the last General Meeting the Directors have appointed a number of Associate Directors to attend Board Meetings and assist the Directors with various tasks. These appointments are informal in that the appointees do not have the legal status responsibilities or voting status of Directors. Further explanation will be given at the Meeting

14. Any Other Business – (strictly subject to the Chairman’s discretion as to its relevance to the Meeting)


1. The Memorandum and Articles of Association presently limit to eight (8) the number of Directors (that is full Directors, the number of Associate Directors not being caught

by this Rule). The Directors feel that this is unnecessarily restrictive and that the number permissible should be increased. The following Amendment to the Memorandum and Articles of Association of the Company is Proposed by Mr Roger Booth and Seconded by Mr Peter Railton: That the maximum permitted number of (full) Directors of the Company be increased from eight (8) to eleven (11).
