Put simply, because we love where we live! (well, who wouldn't! ;-)
Richmond Online is the community web site for Richmond, designed and maintained by Andy Russell of Moonburst. It was created in order to promote Richmond to a global audience, to encourage visitors to the town and to produce a centre of information for the local community.
In 1999 this web site was handed over to Richmond Online Limited, a partnership between Richmond Town Council, Richmond Business & Tourism Association and The Richmond Partnership. This encouraged greater communication between the three organisations with the common purpose of increasing Richmond's profile.
In 2007 the web site was handed back to Moonburst in order to continue its development and it remains today an important asset for Richmond and its community.
Richmond Online is privately funded through advertising and sponsorship along with the continued input of time and money from Moonburst.
For a number of years the Town Council was a major partner and supporter of Richmond Onlne, with their web pages intergrated into this web site. In 2009 the Town Council created their own web site and Moonburst has took on the creation and funding of the community pages.
We are not linked to, or funded by the RDC, though they have sponsored a couple of pages in the past. District Council web site
We are not linked to English Heritage though we have some pages about English Heritage locations (e.g. Richmond Castle) using information supplied by them. The English Heritage logo is visible around the site on relevant pages
