Freedom Day is here!

The 19th July has arrived and there is a lot going on for businesses. With the effects of Brexit, furlough withdrawal, supply chain issues, and cash flow challenges, ‘Freedom Day’ is a welcome moment in this pandemic, however, the current picture still isn’t pretty. The hospitality sector is struggling to find chefs and front of house staff. Estate agents are battling a lack of housing stock.
