2024 Business Awards

Original Richmond Business and Tourism Association 

Business Excellence Awards 2024 in association with The Company of Mercers, Grocers and Haberdashers of Richmond, Yorkshire.

2024 Business Awards

We are proud to work with the Company of Mercers, Grocers and Haberdashers of Richmond (Yorkshire) to celebrate the best of local business.

The awards are free to enter and are open to any business or organisation that is a member of the Original Richmond Business and Tourism Association (ORBTA) or that trades in the DL10 area, whether they are a member of ORBTA or not.

The earliest recorded minutes of the Mercers, Grocers and Haberdashers in 1580, indicate a strong trade association, established to promote, train and assist its members – whilst the exact nature and purpose of the company has evolved over the years, these strong values are as relevant today as they were 440 years ago.

Russell Lord, Freeman of The Mercers, Grocers & Haberdashers of Richmond (Yorkshire) said, "We are delighted to be involved in the Business Excellence Awards 2024. The Company is proud to be working alongside the Original Richmond Business & Tourism Association to make these awards a success in recognising the contribution business makes to our local community. The Awards in 2020 and 2022 highlighted the wealth and diversity of businesses within the area and we look forward to celebrating their success again at this year’s Awards ceremony."
