Two-and-a-bit weeks from now, the nights will start getting shorter and the days longer. Woo-hoo!
In the depths of winter this can be hard to believe - but Spring will come, Covid anxiety will fade, and visitors will return. That will be a huge relief for hundreds of small local businesses which have been under terrible pressure. Here at RIC, we are determined to help those visitors and those businesses find each other. Could you be part of this effort? Do you know someone who might?
We have a team of about 20 volunteers who staff our Information desk in Richmond Market Hall or work behind the scenes. As things get back to normal we want to double that number. There's no entrance exam; there are no fixed hours; what we really want is enthusiasm and a bit of your time. The reward is the sheer fun of helping people discover the fabulosity of our home patch.
If you're interested, or simply curious, in or out of work, a student looking for valuable experience or an energetic retiree, see our Volunteering page for details. We'd love to hear from you.
