NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has again urged local dining and tourism businesses to ensure they registered to participate in the State Government’s Dine & Discover NSW program, with local residents now able to apply for their $100 worth of vouchers.
Mr Marshall said the program was aimed at reinvigorating the hospitality and tourism sectors following COVID-19 and it was important for the local economy that local businesses cashed in.
“At this stage, only around 70 businesses across the region have signed up to accept Dine and Discover NSW vouchers,” Mr Marshall said.
“Whether it’s a café, restaurant, cinema or gallery, these industries have been hit hard by the pandemic, but these vouchers will encourage more customers to come through the door and spend.
“Every NSW resident aged 18 years and over is eligible for four $25 vouchers, worth $100 in total, to spend in participating businesses.
“Residents can easily apply online on the Service NSW app and at www.service.nsw.gov.au and a non-digital solution will be made available to customers who don’t have a smartphone or compatible device.
“Vouchers are valid until 30 June 2021, so operators need to jump online and register now so they don’t miss out on this great opportunity.”
Dine & Discover NSW vouchers will be divided into two categories:
- Two $25 vouchers to be used for eating in at restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and clubs 7 days a week, excluding public holidays; and
- Two $25 vouchers to be used for entertainment and recreation, including cultural institutions, live music, and arts venues, available 7 days a week, excluding public holidays.
The vouchers can only be used at eligible businesses that have implemented a COVID Safety Plan and are registered as COVID Safe.
