The original Richmond Richmond Business and Tourism Association is a group of business people from all sorts of businesses in Richmond and the surrounding areas.
We all care deeply about Richmond and are working to keep and improve this lovely market town as a thriving community for those who live, work, play and visit. We promote all aspects of business and tourism for the benefit of our members, their businesses and the wider community.
…to be progressive, provide encouragement for each other, share knowledge, adopt best practice and welcome new members to join us.
We are working hard to show the world what Richmond has to offer and we willingly give advice to anyone thinking of setting up business in the area. The Association provides a voice for business in the area, is consulted by a range of agencies and strategic bodies and has a say on developments in the area. The Association also supports and initiates activities which promote the town and contribute towards its economic success.
We are pleased that you have visited our website, which is an example of how we work on behalf of our members and the area. You do not need to be in business to find out about working, living or visiting Richmond, so do please read on.
Last year Richmond entered the Grow Your Community category of Yorkshire In Bloom and was rewarded with a silver-gilt, missing gold by only 3 points. We also won the 2018 Yorkshire Rose Discretionary Award for Best New Entry and were paid some great compliments by the judges, who said, “Formed just ten months before judging, with the aim of using ‘In Bloom’ as a catalyst to bring the community together, Richmond have demonstrated how a town of this size can pull together to improve and enhance its environment for the benefit for all.”
The Original Richmond Business and Tourism Association enter Yorkshire In Bloom to raise the profile of the town and its businesses as a beautiful place to live and visit. We have received much local publicity and last year we were filmed by Electric Ray TV working on our projects alongside Chris Bavin, the presenter of the BBC2 television series Britain In Bloom.
The resulting half-hour programme, broadcast earlier this year, gave fantastic publicity to Richmond and working on Yorkshire In Bloom really brought our community together. This year we are upping our game and have entered the category of Town. If we achieve gold, who knows, but Richmond might go through to the national Britain in Bloom competition!

A visitor to Richmond might not realise what a diverse collection of high quality businesses the town has from boutique shops to a diverse range of manufacturing businesses.
Richmond is a pretty special place to live. A cohesive and vibrant community spirit forms the background of Richmond life!
Richmond, especially on a summer's evening, certainly has a slightly "continental" feel: Prince Charles compared the town centre to Siena!
