Introduction

The COVID-19 pandemic, and the measures taken by the government to protect the populace, have had a major impact on most of us. As the retail sector, and the city's hotels, restaurants and cafés are vital for residents and visitors, and to ensure the capital retains its appeal, the College of Aldermen has made a number of decisions to provide as much support as possible to businesses with premises in the city.
This scheme will be rolled out in several stages, the first of which is a direct voucher purchase campaign.
