Last night was a star-studded occasion at the 2022 Business Excellence Awards, hosted by ORBTA at The Station.
On behalf of Richmond Information Centre, Bev Lawrence climbed into the spotlight to receive from the MC, Baroness Angela Harris, a special one-off award. The One and Only Award was presented to RIC in recognition of our role within the local community.
As Lady Harris said, it was unthinkable that a town such as Richmond should be without an Information Centre. The award was a tribute to the hard work of the entire team which had been involved in rebuilding RIC as a volunteer-run** venture after the closure of the town's TIC.
* Oscars, Schmoscars. It was a lovely evening, and as glitzy and red-carpety as Richmond ever gets.
