Annual Report and Financial Statements

  • The Annual Report outlines the structure of the Richard III Society and summarises its activities and achievements over the period of the reporting year; it also outlines future plans and objectives. The Financial Statement provides the Treasurer's report and audited accounts for the reporting year, which runs from 1 April to 31 March.
  • The Annual Report and Financial Statements are published together with the September edition of the Ricardian Bulletin.

2015 - 2016 Foreword

Dr Phil StoneAfter the momentous events covered by last year’s report, 2015/16 was inevitably somewhat quieter. However, that is not to say it hasn’t been another busy twelve months. It seems these days that a Ricardian year can’t be otherwise. This report summarises our activities and achievements over the year and demonstrates our viability and our strengths.

One of our greatest strengths is the diversity and calibre of our membership, acting both collectively and individually, and it is appropriate in this annual report to recognise such contributions. So it is very fitting to record that during the reporting year, Philippa Langley and John Ashdown-Hill were awarded MBEs for their successful and essential roles in finding King Richard’s remains. We recognise, too, the considerable contribution to the work of the Society, made over many years, by Wendy Moorhen, who stepped down from her various roles late in 2015. Sadly, we must also remember the contributions of those who have passed away during the year, such as our vice-president Moira Habberjam and Croydon Group stalwart and founder Roy Linsell.

I am happy and proud to commend this report to members; it reflects another busy and successful year, with our finances sound and our membership stable. My thanks go, as always, to all the officers of the Society at every level both in the UK and overseas.

Phil Stone — Chairman
