Christmas boost for Clarence & Richmond Valley Small Business

 COVID-rattled Clarence and Richmond Valley hospitality businesses are to receive a timely boost with the Nationals in NSW Government issuing all local adults additional $25 Dine & Discover vouchers, Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis says. 

“We know how popular these vouchers are from the huge take up in the first edition issue earlier this year and with Christmas and the holidays around the corner, I encourage everyone to claim and spend locally their extra $25 Dine and extra $25 Discover voucher which are now being rolled out,” Mr Gulaptis said. 

“If we all do that, it means millions of extra dollars for local cafes and restaurants and more local jobs.” 

The Nationals in NSW Government scheme provides each applicant with vouchers to be spent at participating NSW dining, hospitality and entertainment venues. 

People who did not claim in the initial allocation are entitled to three of each voucher worth a total of $150 per person. 

People who did take advantage of the scheme and are digital customers will have the new vouchers automatically delivered to their Service NSW app which they may need to update. 

New customers should contact Service NSW via or by calling 13 77 88. The agency is happy to provide paper vouchers for people who prefer this method. The app and the web site can also be used to find participating businesses. 

More than 15,000 businesses and 4.8 million customers have registered for the Dine & Discover NSW program, with almost $276 million vouchers used so far. 

Participating registered businesses do not need to re-register, while those who want to join the program are encouraged to sign up now, download the Service NSW for Business app and get ready to redeem.
