Richmond Station and the Market Town

The Station typifies what is great about historic market towns like Richmond. A strong community effort enabled the closed station to re-open as a mixed use centre, combining a café/restaurant, wonderful artisan food producers, small businesses, a cinema and an art gallery.

Supporting Local Businesses in Northallerton

Today I spent time meeting with various Northallerton businesses like Allerton Steel and Barkers department store. Supporting small companies and maintaining thriving market towns are priorities for me.
