Richardson’s Proud to Announce Sponsorship of Norfolk Day 2018!
Richardson’s is proud to announce that we will be sponsoring Norfolk Day 2018, which takes place on the 27th July. Backed by the EDP, Norwich Evening News and BBC Radio Norfolk, we are pleased to be sponsoring this fantastic event alongside Woodfordes.
The aim of Norfolk Day is to encourage local individuals, communities, and businesses to celebrate their passion and pride for the beautiful county we work in, and at Richardson’s we’ll be celebrating our years of work and play in Norfolk by hosting family fun events at Hemsby Beach Holiday Park!
Greg Munford, our chief executive, notes that it makes sense for Richardson’s to get involved with Norfolk Day, owing to our history in the county: “Mr Robert Richardson founded the business now best known as Richardson’s over 70 years ago.
“Beginning with just one hire boat, his amazing story of successful business operations spans the length of the country all the way from Norfolk to the Thames and even the Isle of Wight.”
Our guests will be familiar with our holiday park on the Norfolk coast, as well as our boat hire, boat building operations, and venues all within the leisure and tourism industry.
“Continuing his legacy and returning to our roots, today at Richardson’s we have refocused our Norfolk based operations.
“We’ve used the sale of several operations located outside of the county to support investment in our Norfolk Based operations: building the next generation of inland broads cruisers available to hire from our Stalham Marina and also investing over £10m in our Hemsby Beach Family Holiday Park.”
Greg understands that our success isn’t solely built on having a great range of boats, or our recently refurbished, extended new holiday park.
“People holiday with us because they want to visit Norfolk and the Broads National Park.
“This is why Richardson’s has chosen to support Norfolk Day.
Norfolk is a fantastic place to get away, whether you’re on the coast by the gorgeous golden beaches and lively seaside towns, or relaxing on the Norfolk Broads, an area of ultimate peace and wonderful wildlife.
“All of this is brought together by the wonderful people of Norfolk. It’s these people who make our county so special, and by sponsoring Norfolk Day we are championing the people and the place where we work, rest and play.”
Everyone at Richardson’s is looking forward to celebrating Norfolk Day on July 27th 2018 – we hope you’re all looking forward to expressing your passion for our wonderful county, too!
