Just Getting Going?

Establishing a new business can be daunting - we can help

"Through our members there’s lots of resources and experiences to share and even if some of the members are competitors, it’s good to get to know people and know what they have to offer. As an Association we get to find out what’s going on in town and can influence decisions made by the Council regarding planning applications and other issues affecting the town.”

Alyson Swift, King Street Kitchen and Gift

How the Association helped me...

“The Association has helped to make Just the Job part of the wider business community and as members we are able to help with improvements and creating a better town for everyone. It is good to be kept informed of what is going on in the town and for us to feed our business information to the group. I have also found the talks to be interesting and useful.”

Supporting Tourism

Supporting Tourism

Through our sub-group, Welcome to Richmond, ORBTA promotes tourism in Richmond and the surrounding area. The group organises Love being Local, the Town Ticket, Richmond Town map and manages Richmond’s visitor website.


The Information Centre in the Market Hall is managed and run by volunteers and is supported by ORBTA.

Richmond Walking and Book Festival

Richmond Walking and Book Festival

ORBTA and local businesses support the Richmond Walking and Book Festival, which is held annually in late September, early October. The Festival combines daytime walks led by knowledgeable guides with evening talks from well-known and emerging authors. This long-running event attracts many visitors to the area to listen and walk, just listen or just walk!
