Graaf­fReinet, the clos­est “large town”, is 135km away. The dis­tance to Coles­berg is 146km and to Bloem­fontein 370km.

The Oercy su­per­mar­ket stocks all ne­ces­si­ties. You’ll also find a Stan­dard Bank, an ATM, a bot­tle store, two me­chan­ics, a few cafés and, of course, a fuel sta­tion. There is no phar­macy but the hos­pi­tal can as­sist with pre­scrip­tions.

There are state hos­pi­tals in Rich­mond and in Coles­berg, and a pri­vate hos­pi­tal in Bloem­fontein.

The lo­cal Drie­fontein re­tire­ment vil­lage is on the premises of the for­mer Rich­mond Ho­tel.

There are three state schools in Rich­mond: Ben­nie Groe­newald Pri­mary, Ikhaya Se­nior Pri­mary and Rich­mond High School.
