Residents are rightly getting concerned about what the future holds for our city centre and waterfront once the lockdown is eased. One sector most definitely badly affected is the hospitality sector especially our restaurants but not forgetting hotels and bars.

Engage is trying during this difficult and challenging time to do what little we can to support our independent restaurants and food suppliers by connecting residents with restaurants once a week on a Wednesday and at the same time hosting an on-line conference call for anyone who wants to connect with their neighbours. You can keep a check on this work HERE in our Engage with… project page.

We will try to bring you regular updates and comments from the national and local media about what the future might hold:
