Ocean Village Airport Donation

Ocean Village has rallied round one of Gibraltar’s most important trading hubs – the airport – by donating complimentary hand sanitisers to help battle  COVID-19.

Emilia Hazell-Smith, from Ocean Village said, “We are delighted to be able to donate our hand sanitizers to Gibraltar Airport to help keep travellers safe. We have donated over 30,000 hand sanitizers throughout Gibraltar since we started distribution at the beginning of August.”

The CEO of Gibraltar Airport, Terence Lopez added, “Despite the reduction in passenger figures this year, we are equally concerned for the health and wellbeing of all our passengers and staff, and look forward to Gibraltar’s safe and profitable return to normality.”


Hero Hire

…is a new free app that acts as an interactive directory designed by local company Koffee Studios, run by Aidan Serra and James Linares, who specialise in web/app/software design and development. Hero Hire itself is a simple proposition that uses integration with social media as well as word-of-mouth recommendations to put the user in touch with the right person for the services required, an electrician for example. Extra features will be added over time, and there are plans to expand beyond Gibraltar.


A Perfect Storm?

The Deputy Chief Minister Dr Joseph Garcia said that the combination of leaving the EU and the COVID-19 pandemic had the potential makings of a perfect storm, during a virtual panel discussion entitled “Brexit in times of COVID-19” at the online conference of the UK’s Liberal Democrats.
