Graphics on empty shops to celebrate Richmond's cultural scene

By The Editor

20th Jan 2021 | Local News

Empty shop units in Richmond town centre have been transformed by the application of stylish, colourful graphics which showcase the rich cultural, architectural and natural heritage of the area.

Themed around history, culture, nature and local poetry, the graphics have been funded by members of Be Richmond, an alliance of over 300 businesses in the town centre area. Feedback from businesses and residents has been very enthusiastic.

Be Richmond Chair Ann Chapman-Daniel is a committed supporter of local arts.

She said:"As in many places around the country, the Covid-19 pandemic has led to the closure of several shops.

"In Richmond, the empty units are in prominent areas and were having a detrimental effect on the aesthetic impact to visitors to the town.

"The new graphics not only brighten up the streets, they also highlight the outstanding cultural and natural features of the area.

"We are thrilled that they have generated such positive responses and proud to have made a positive contribution to the town."
