Dine, discover here

THROWING his full support behind the rollout of the Dine and Discover NSW scheme, Cumberland City Mayor Steve Christou is urging everyone to use their $25 vouchers to support local businesses.

“This is a fantastic initiative,” he said.
“Cumberland City is a thriving hub for local dining and eateries, entertainment and arts.
“We have a unique array of foods options available and there is no shortage of great local restaurants and cafes to eat out at.”
Cr Christou also encouraged all eligible small businesses to register for the State Government scheme to ensure they benefitted from the stimulus boost.
Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the program would bring much needed relief to some of the State’s hardest hit industries.
“Whether it’s a café, restaurant, cinema or gallery, these industries have done it tough during the pandemic, and these vouchers will encourage more customers to come through the door and spend,” he said.
Under the program, each NSW resident aged 18 and over is eligible up to $100, divided into two $25 dinning vouchers to be used at restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and clubs plus two $25 vouchers for entertainment and recreation venues, including cultural institutions, live music, and arts venues.
Both sets of vouchers can be used seven days a week, excluding public holidays and are valid until June 30.
Residents can apply online for their vouchers through the latest version of the Service NSW app and website, with a non-digital solution also coming for customers who don’t have a smartphone or compatible device.
Eligible businesses can also apply to participate at any time.
