Local businesses are getting behind our Ribbon of Remembrance as the centenary anniversary of the end of The First World War approaches.
Over the past few months, local people have been encouraged to submit images and information about those affected by the events of 1914 to 1918. Hundreds have responded to the call, and our online Ribbon of Remembrance continues to grow as we head towards this historic date.
Next, the Ribbon will become reality – with profiles being made into display boards and lining the route between Catterick Garrison and Richmond.
And the town’s businesses with links to The First World War are joining in too.
They will display their Ribbon boards, starting on the launch of this year’s Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal on Saturday 27 October.
Many thanks to Richmond businesses who are supporting the Ribbon of Remembrance:
King Street Kitchen and Gift
Pickford and Bow
Castle Hill Bookshop
Phi Music Shop
King Street Pharmacy
We will also be displaying our own ‘Blow’s Penny Bazaar’ board in the gift shop window.
