Annual General Meeting 2019


The Forty Seventh Annual General Meeting of Severn Valley Railway (Holdings) plc will be held at St George's Hall, Load Street, Bewdley, DY12 2EQ on Saturday 15th June 2019. Registration for the meeting commences at 2.00pm, when refreshments will be available, with the meeting starting at 2.30pm prompt.

If you are unable to attend the meeting to vote in person, please complete and submit the downloadable proxy form or complete the online version. To ensure your vote is recorded your proxy form must reach the Company Secretary not later than 2.30 pm on Thursday 13th June 2019, this being the deadline of 48 hours prior to the holding of the AGM. Submitting the proxy form will not prevent you from attending and voting at the meeting itself.

Increased use of electronic communications will deliver significant savings to the Company in terms of administration, printing and postage costs, as well as speeding up the provision of information to shareholders. If you agree to the Company sending or supplying documents to you by use of electronic communication please complete the online form.

If you have any problems accessing the documents or the online forms, please let us know at:

St George's Hall Location

Changes of address

Would all shareholders please note that changes of address should be advised in writing direct to our registrars at the following address:-

Hannah Brownhill, Neville Registrars, Neville House, Steelpark Road, HALESOWEN, B62 8HD (0121-585 1131) -

After each mailing to shareholders we receive a number of returned envelopes marked ‘Gone Away’, which of course incurs postage costs and means that the shareholder may not receive the necessary communication at the appropriate time. It would therefore be most helpful if any changes were advised to Nevilles as soon as possible.


Neville's can also help with share transfers and matters of probate.

Shareholder Email Addresses

It is much more cost effective if we can send the annual accounts information (and also the annual Shareholders Newsletter) to shareholders by email rather than by post. We would be grateful therefore, if you agree, to receive your email address in order to do this. This will also enable us to keep you up to date with current activities on the Railway. Please note that your email address is confidential and will not be used for non-SVR activities. Simply click on 'Shareholder Mailing List Preferences' at the right and complete the form .


New Cards for Old

We are about to distribute the first batch of Shareholder Travel Passes to shareholders who possess 1200 shares or more. There are still quite a number of shareholders who have yet to respond, so could you please send a passport-style photo (or two photos if it is a joint shareholding) to, by post, or by calling in at the main office – Number One, Comberton Place, Kidderminster, Worcestershire DY10 1QR.
