About Us | The story behind My Richmond

About us

Hello everyone!

We try and keep the focus of My Richmond on the local businesses we feature and our local area, however we wanted to share a bit more about us to shed some light on who’s behind all of this! 

We are a local couple with a connection to Richmond through family who work at the Richmond Duck Pond Market (open every weekend in Heron Square!). With a background in marketing, we set out in December 2016 to create a platform that would help local businesses like the market attract people from the local area and beyond. 

Fast forward to 2023 and what started as a hobby due to our love of the borough has now grown into a full time family run business! Over the past 7+ years we've worked hard to organically grow the largest social media audience of people who live or work in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames with over 55,000 followers!

We hope My Richmond will help you to easily support local businesses and spend more time in our local area, we are lucky to have so many amazing businesses and such beautiful scenery on our doorstep.
