We are currently looking for a venue for our next The Aldgate Business Forum meeting for Autumn 2016.

We require a space for at least 50 people along with the provision of drinks and finger food / canapes if possible.

The event will last for around 2 hours and the provider of the venue and food will be published and promoted as the sponsor for the event

We will run the event as a business networking event and will have a guest speaker present for a presentation.

If you can offer your venue to The Aldgate Business Forum or you would like to come along to The Aldgate Business Forum please contact me directly.

City Giving Day 2016

City Giving Day 2016

City Giving Day is an annual initiative run by the Lord Mayor’s Appeal that any companies in or linked to the city can get involved in.

This year it is on Tuesday 27th September which will be a day companies all promote and celebrate our charity and community at the same time. If you are a company in or linked to the city you can involved in the following ways;

1. Running an activity that raises employees engagement with your charity/community work

2. Holding a fundraiser to support either your charities or The Lord Mayor’s Appeal

3. Making a donation to the Lord Mayor’s Appeal which will be recognised through media opportunities and exclusive events.

All companies that take part in City Giving Day 2016 will also be invited to share their own charity/community stories as part of the bigger PR campaign.

Mitre Square

Mitre Square Update

The City of London is delivering a new public square in Mitre Place in Aldgate Ward (separate to the adjacent Aldgate Square also being delivered by the City), and in conjunction with the private development at Creechurch Place improving the streets in the area.

Work is coming along well and now around 15% completed; paving works have been completed in Creechurch Lane and Mitre Street, works continue to facilitate a new ‘toucan’ crossing on the north side of Dukes Place and investigations to ensure the new vehicle turnaround in Creechurch Place have begun.

In order to deliver an enhanced public realm, the City is proposing to fully pedestrianise Mitre Square. As a result of the changes vehicles will no longer be able to park in Mitre Square, and the two existing disabled parking bays only will be relocated to Mitre Street and Creechurch Lane.

The small number of parents for Sir John Cass School who currently use Mitre Square to wait to pick up children will be provided with permits to wait on Mitre Street for a short period of time. Parents will be contacted directly in regards to this.
