Happy Yorkshire Day! From Yorkshire Puddings to the Yorkshire Dales, there are so many things we could say we love about God’s Own County.

Here at Network Marketing, we are Yorkshire born and bred. We set up in our Leeds office in 1996 and we continue to love where we work right in the heart of Yorkshire.

Yorkshire Day is celebrated on 1st August every year. The celebrations began in 1975 and the day was set up by the Yorkshire Ridings Society to celebrate the historic county in all its glory.

Here’s what our Leeds lot love about working and living in Yorkshire, not just today but every day!
