The Notice of Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) of Dunelm Group plc (the “Company”) was circulated to shareholders on 14 October 2021 and advised that the AGM will be held at Dunelm's Store Support Centre, Watermead Business Park, Syston, Leicester, LE7 1AD at 11.30 am on Tuesday 16 November 2021.

The health and well-being of colleagues, shareholders, and the wider community in which the Company operates is of paramount importance.  Whilst we are looking forward to welcoming shareholders to the AGM, we would ask those shareholders attending the meeting to notify the Company Secretary, Dawn Durrant, via email to investorrelations@dunelm.com by no later than 11.30am on Friday 12 November 2021.  This will allow the Company to ensure that appropriate social distancing measures are in place at the meeting venue for the Annual General Meeting.

Shareholders are encouraged to vote by submitting a proxy in advance of the AGM. To ensure that their vote is recorded, shareholders should only appoint the Chairman of the AGM (and not any named individual) to act as their proxy. Details of how to submit a proxy are set out in the Notice of Annual General Meeting which can be found in the Reports and Presentations section of this website.

Shareholders can submit questions in advance of the AGM addressed to the Company Secretary at investorrelations@dunelm.com. The Board will endeavour to answer all questions as soon as is practicable after the AGM and post these on its website.
