Review: Business After Hours hosted by the City of Ryde and co-promoted by Ryde Macquarie Park Chamber of Commerce

BAH1406The Ryde Planning and Business Centre was packed to capacity on Monday 2 June when members of RBF, Ryde Macquarie Park Chamber and other local Chambers attended our June Business After Hours. More than 100 guests were updated by Cr Roy Maggio (Mayor of Ryde), Roy Newsome (Acting GM, City of Ryde) and Dominic Johnson (Group Manager, Environment and Planning) on Ryde’s performance and budget, and on new developments in key business precincts.

Leon Vrontamitis of Smartline was the winner of the Worm Farm and George Papallo, RBF’s Treasurer, won a family pass to the Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre in the lucky draw.

Our thanks to the City of Ryde for being, as always, such generous hosts, and to local Chamber presidents for promoting this event through their member base.

Our Business of the Month for June is Royal Rehab – read more about the site redevelopment and the completion and naming of new roads in the facility here.
