Free ‘Fix Your Bike’ £50 voucher scheme has been quietly shut down for good – mirror.co.uk
The government issued 400,000 vouchers worth £50 each since last summer to help people fix up their bikes – but this week announced it ‘does not plan’ to issue any more
A £20million voucher scheme to help people fix rusty bikes during the Covid pandemic has been quietly shut down for good.
Some 400,000 £50 vouchers were issued between July 2020 and May 2021 to redeem at bike shops across England.
Until this week, the government had held out the possibility that the scheme could be extended.
Its website said: “Any updates on future releases of vouchers will be published on this page.”
But on Monday that was ditched.
