The Company's AGM was held on Wednesday 29 April 2020. On 23 March 2020, the UK Government announced mandatory measures in relation to social distancing to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. These mandatory measures include requiring people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes. In light of the Government's measures, the Board took the decision to move the location of the AGM to the Company's Head Office at Persimmon House, Fulford, York, YO19 4FE.
The well-being of our shareholders is vitally important to us and under the Government’s current measures, shareholders could not attend the meeting. To enable shareholders to listen to the proceedings of the AGM from their homes, the proceedings were made available by a webcast.
