  • Over half the Board have joined recently

Financial issues to consider:

  • Liquidity appears to have been slender at the latest year end but unrestricted reserves are available
  • Accounts have been filed late on 2 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
Established: 11 years
