Beverley Tourist Information Centre Latest Update
As our tourism businesses adjust to the ‘new normal’ way of operating we are committed to keeping our partners informed of any initiatives to assist with rebuilding customer confidence and the recovery of the visitor economy.
This week the government launched The ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ voucher incentive scheme to encourage more people to eat out in restaurants and establishments serving food for immediate on-site consumption.
The ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ voucher incentive scheme is now open for registration. Restaurants and other eating establishments that sell food and non-alcoholic drinks for immediate on-site consumption may register. Through the scheme, eating establishments can offer a discount to diners of up to 50%, up to £10 per diner, and then claim the difference back from the government. The discount is eligible for purchases made on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3-31 August. Learn more about the scheme and how to register here. Promotional materials and guidance have been shared to support businesses in promoting the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme and the Government is going to launch a restaurant finding service next week whereby the public will be able to enter a postcode that the site will provide a list of participating businesses within a 1 mile radius. While this will be good for locals, visitors may struggle to know the postcode of the location that they are in. Guidance for businesses has been updated to inform operators registering their business that the name, address and website URL of the business will be added to a list of participating establishments that will be available to the public.
If you sign up to the scheme please let us know so that we can share your social posts and help spread the word.
