Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the    accounting records for the financial year to which the audit relates and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, receipts and other documents relating to those records must be made available for inspection by any person interested. For the year ended 31 March 2019, these documents will be available on reasonable notice by application to:

The appointed auditor can be contacted at the address in paragraph 4 below for this purpose between the above dates only.
