Coronavirus: Richmond Shops Offering Delivery and Collection

Working together to help everyone manage self-isolation and other difficulties that we shall experience over the coming weeks. Whilst it can be hard to find what you want from the ‘big’ shops online, because they are being stretched to keep up with demand, many local businesses have the food, groceries, and key supplies you will need.

There are butchers, bakers, fruit and veg, grocers, licensed grocers all able to help you with food. Treats and gifts can also be ordered and delivered for Easter, birthdays or just to cheer you or somebody else up. Other helpful contacts are at the foot of the list.

All our business owners and their staff are kind and willing to help you with your orders and a cheery word. Don’t hesitate to phone or email. As well as helping you now, this will also help keep Richmond businesses alive so that the shops and other businesses will still be there for you when this crisis is over. All of the following businesses offer delivery and/or postage - phone or email with your order.

After careful consideration and with great sadness, we have decided to temporarily close all our Inns and Hotels from Monday 23rd March 2020. At Provenance, people are our primary consideration, and our priority is the health and wellbeing of our guests, team and suppliers.

A difficult decision was required to ensure that we play our part to try to reduce the spread of the virus. We would also like to give our team time to make arrangements and organise themselves to isolate if required to do so.

Thank you so much for all your kind words of support, and we apologise for cancellations we have had to make. This is a challenging time for all of us.

We all need to look after each other in these uncertain times. We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as it is practical and safe to do so.

Kind regards,
The Provenance Inns & Hotels Team

Students get smart with their driving skills

Two students have benefited from advanced training in safer driving thanks to the generous support of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM). Lee Porter, IAM RoadSmart expert, delivered one-to-one advanced lessons to Hollie Butler and Ashleigh Green, Year 13 students at Richmond Sixth Form College, as part of a wider campaign in college to develop safer driving awareness.
