Residents already know this, but the Office of National Statistics (words to bring a momentary gloom to anyone's day) has just discovered that Richmondshire is the happiest place in the whole of the UK.
With a score of 8.35/10, we come first out of all the districts in the country (124 places ahead of Richmond upon Thames, since you ask). Anyway, gloating's not nice, so we won't gloat. We know we live in a wonderful part of the UK, which is why we're always pleased to welcome visitors - particularly if they come from poor old Kensington and Chelsea, bottom of the list in 416th place...
