A £350,000 fund has been launched to support businesses across Three Rivers District with the aim of boosting the post-pandemic economic recovery.

Three Rivers District Council has agreed the new fund in a bid to support local businesses, drive innovation, growth, efficiency and productivity for companies hit by Covid restrictions
