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.

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.
