Wrexham and Denbighshire Councils will help administer the Welsh Government funds for businesses impacted during Alert Level 2 restrictions. And businesses with a turnover greater than £85,000 can apply through the Welsh Government’s Business Wales platform, while those with a turnover less than £85,000 can apply through the Council.
Eligible businesses include:
• Nightclubs, late entertainment venues and ice skating rinks
• Events and conference venues
• Business unable to open indoors between May 1 and May 17 and who experienced a drop in turnover
• Hospitality trading under Alert Level 2 conditions from May 17 to June 30
• Supply chain and related business with material impact on turnover
Commenting, Simon Baynes, MP for Clywd South, said:
“I urge all eligible businesses in Wrexham and Denbighshire to apply for this funding. It’s so important that this support is grasped so that we can protect jobs and livelihoods in both counties.
“I would also ask residents in Clwyd South to take every opportunity to support our local businesses during this difficult and turbulent time as they have been impacted by months of restrictions. This will help ensure that the financial support given reaches its full potential for the benefit of the local economy.”
