Tuesday the 10th of May 2016 was a special day for David and Margaret Gibson as they attended a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen and HRH Prince Philip. It's was a pity that the weather was changeable but that didn't diminish the enjoyment of being invited to such an event. David said, "I was really surprised to receive the invitation and so grateful to even be suggested to attend an event at Buckingham Palace. We had a great day which we will always remember"

David received an invitation to attend the garden party due to his work with The Richmond Business Network (RBN) in Richmond North Yorkshire. One of the comments that were put forward summed up why David was invited: "..............your network isn’t just about business but about supporting the community as a whole".
This group was set up in September 2010 and now boasts a data base of over 350 "members" drawn from all around the north east of England. Important links have been developed with individual businesses but also business associations, Universities and Schools throughout the area such as the North East Chamber of Commerce, Darlington Business Club, North Yorkshire LEP, Welcome to Yorkshire, Northumbria and Teesside Universities.

Each month the RBN host a business breakfast at various venues in Richmond and "Working Lunches" held at The Holiday Inn, Scotch Corner Hotel. These events are regularly attended by 25 - 30 local business people.
