A Richmondshire law firm is partnering with a business group to enable the organisation to run four lunchtime networking events in Richmond this year.

Silk Family Law, which has an office at Aske Stables, is sponsoring Dales Business Women.

Marketing and PR professional Sharon Davis started the group for for professional and entrepreneurial women in the Yorkshire Dales just over a year ago.

The Richmond hub, led by local business owner Jennifer Rasbeary, is the largest of the network’s four groups – the other three are in Hawes, Masham and Reeth.

Sharon said: “I’m really excited about this partnership with Silk Family Law. The Dales Business Women events have been very well attended in Richmond and I look forward building on this in 2019 with Silk.

“Running a business or building a career can be extremely fulfilling, but it can also be a lonely place and I hope the events will facilitate new business opportunities while providing a platform where women can support one another.”

Margaret Simpson, a founding partner of Silk Family Law, said: “As a business owner myself, I know the importance of networking.

“Dales Business Women is providing much needed peer support and Silk is delighted to sponsor events that will help business women in the Richmond area.”

The first Richmond networking event is on March 20 at The Smithy, Aske.
