For now there are less of them, with Flamingo the only brand operating in the capital and Jump holding back after being purchased by a competitor. Do you welcome the return of this cheap and environmentally-friend way of getting around the city or do you wish these hazards to pedestrian safety had been cosigned to pre-Covid-19 history?

Small businesses are vital to the recovery of our economy.

During the Covid-19 restrictions, business owners have shown initiative, hard work and resilience to keep afloat.

But many have been hit hard.

Lack of clarity about just how heavy the toll of the restrictions have been on individual businesses and their ability to quickly rebound adds to the uncertainty of the national economic recovery.

Therefore, Prosper is launching a survey targeted at finding out the scale of Covid-19's impact.

You can take that survey right now – it will only take a few minutes.
