New National Living Wage Introduced

A new National Living Wage to be introduced in 2020 will see low-paid workers earn nearly a thousand pounds more a year.

The new rate of pay will come in on 1 April 2020, a rise from £8.21 to £8.72 for workers over the age of 25, marking an increase of 6.2 per cent.

It means a full-time worker aged 25 or over who receives the National Living Wage will get a pay rise of £930.

The raise will also see younger workers receive a boost to the national minimum wage of between 4.6 per cent and 6.5 per cent depending on their age, with 21-24 year-olds seeing a 6.5% increase from £7.70 to £8.20 an hour.

New Vision for Welsh Visitor Economy

First Minister Mark Drakeford and Deputy Minister for Tourism Lord Elis-Thomas unveiled new future for the Welsh Visitor economy recently by publishing its five-year plan to grow the visitor economy, focusing on Wales’ strengths – its landscapes, culture and places.  The new plan – Welcome to Wales: Priorities for the Visitor Economy 2020-25 – will be backed by two funds to support the industry: A new £10m fund – Brilliant Basics to support the all-important tourism infrastructure which will complement the £50m Wales Tourism Investment Fund focusing on high-quality, reputation-changing products.

Further details on the priorities can be viewed here – https://businesswales.gov.wales/tourism/welcome-wales-priorities-visitor-economy-2020-2025

Modern Slavery

Slavery and human trafficking are illegal.  Yet, there are still an estimated 40.3 million people trapped in modern slavery around the world today.

Shiva Foundation have developed the Stop Slavery Blueprint, a free toolkit for the hospitality sector to address the risk of exploitation (including modern slavery and CSE) in their operations and supply chains. This toolkit was created by the industry with the participation of relevant stakeholders such as anti-slavery organisations, the independent anti-slavery commissioner and Operation Make Safe from the met police. It is worth noting, this toolkit can be used and adapted by any hospitality organisation regardless of their size or annual turnover.

Now that the festive period is all done, why not take time to freshen up your premises. 

I can offer a range of carpet cleaning services from spot cleans, room cleans, maintenance contracts,  rug cleans and more all with the benefit being a whisper quiet system and having carpets dry from 30 minutes.     Free demonstration available*
