This year hasn’t been so much a year of two halves but more like a story of two economies. Businesses in leisure, hospitality, travel and events were crucified by extended lockdowns and a stop/start economy.

On the other hand, other sectors, primarily exporting businesses absolutely thrived. Of course there were those caught in the middle. Retail had a bad year but then when it re-opened things bounced back because people were keen to spend some of their new savings.
