馬恩島活動支持基金旨在促進冬季貿易

政府表示,為支持馬恩島當地社區的活動,正在重新啟動一項基金,以促進冬季的貿易。

國內活動基金是在Covid-19大流行之後設立的,以鼓勵人們回到城鎮中心。

支付的費用將涵蓋舉辦活動成本的80%。

政府表示,該基金最初以50萬英鎊的預算設立,此前已支付了超過30萬英鎊,以支持約80個活動,這些活動吸引了22萬人。

酒吧、俱樂部、餐館和咖啡館也將可以申請最高1500英鎊的資金,用於舉辦現場音樂和娛樂活動。

企業部長Lawrie Hooper說,生活成本的上升意味着冬季將是 "對我們的居民和企業來說的又一個挑戰時期"。

他補充說,提供資金將 "減少與舉辦這些類型活動相關的風險"。

除了撥款外,企業部還重新推出了兩項LoveIOM禮品卡獎勵措施,以鼓勵在當地商店和接待場所的消費。

胡珀先生說,這一舉措將發揮 "至關重要的作用,將禮品消費留在我們的經濟中,而不是以在線市場券的形式轉到島外"。

"他補充說:"該卡被認為是居民和企業的雙贏之舉,因為在聖誕節後貿易不景氣的幾個月里,企業可以從顧客數量的增加中受益。

A fund to support events in local communities on the Isle of Man is being relaunched to boost trade during the winter months, the government has said.

The Domestic Events Fund was set up in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic to encourage people back into town centres.

Payments will cover up to 80% of the cost of staging an event.

The government said the fund, which was initially set up with a £500,000 budget, had previously paid out more than £300,000 to support about 80 events, which attracted 220,000 people.

Pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafes will also be available to apply for funding of up to £1,500 to host live music and entertainment events.

Enterprise Minister Lawrie Hooper said the rising cost of living meant the winter months would be "another challenging time for our residents and businesses alike".

Providing funding would "reduce the risk associated with running these types of events", he added.

In addition to the grants, the Department for Enterprise is also reintroducing two LoveIOM Gift Card incentives to encourage spending in local shops and hospitality venues.

Mr Hooper said that initiative would play "an essential role in keeping gifting spend within our economy versus being redirected off-island in the form of online market place vouchers".

"The card is seen as a win-win for both residents and businesses with the latter benefiting from a boost in patron numbers in slower trading months post-Christmas period," he added.
