$54.5 million in grants for Victorian businesses and councils to get ready for alfresco dining — and why NOROCK is the perfect partner to reconnect
Victorian hospitality businesses have had it tough for the last 18 months with long lockdowns affecting their ability to trade, so the Victorian Government’s announcement to assist will help ensure this summer is all about people reconnecting with their family and friends over a meal.
Part of the money will be put aside for a COVIDSafe Outdoor Activation Voucher program of $2,000 grants for more than 7,000 businesses, while the remaining will go to the COVIDSafe Outdoor Activation Fund for councils to transform outdoor spaces.
So why are we so excited? Well, aside from how happy we are that hospitality businesses are getting assistance in these unprecedented times, we also feel that NOROCK self-stabilising table bases are the perfect partner for any outdoor space. Our table bases love the outdoors with its uneven pavement, cobblestones, laneways, and city streets:
- Tables that don’t ROCK, NO matter what!
- NO wobbles
- NO spills
- NO time wasted
- NO problematic parts
- NO compromise on design
This is about giving businesses support to reopen in safe and new ways, ensuring they can recover strongly and quickly. Our small businesses are rearing to go and this will mean more customers and more trade.
NOROCK table bases use a simple mechanical system with four pivoting legs that are interconnected in such a way that they must reach an average weight loading on all four feet. When a table is placed on an uneven surface, the feet will move until all four feet reach a state of equilibrium or more simply, a state of stability. And what do Victorian diners need right now? Not to worry about a wobbly table: just to eat, drink, and enjoy their company and the sunshine!

As we are right by the ocean corrosion was a major concern of ours along with having uneven planked flooring. Furniture Options suggested using the Esplanade NOROCK Table Base as they are made with high-quality die-cast aluminium. It has stood up to the elements extremely well, while also being a stylish design.
