Further comments from your Council: The 2015 Report and Accounts have not been reviewed in detail by Council as they were released only on 7 April 2016. However, Council received a presentation from Ian Ellis, Finance Director, at its April Council meeting and is pleased to note the progress achieved in the business throughout the Rebuild phase, noting the investments which have been made and which are still to be made to secure the financial security of the Society. Council regularly monitors the financial performance of the business through its Business Performance Committee as part of its role of ‘holding to account’ the Board.
