We know that in the current climate security is a concern to businesses and the wider community within Midtown with many buildings being unoccupied.
As a consequence, BEE Midtown, working in close dialogue with our neighbours, The Chancery Lane Association, have deployed a security team to patrol our district Monday to Friday, from 10.30 to 17.30.
We can be contacted via our all normal channels should any of our Members require specific help or advice relating to this initiative.

We also invite all Member businesses to inform us of any experiences, initiatives or advice that can be shared and promoted for the benefit of all of our constituents.
Our online portal BEE THE CHANGE, for reporting and supporting the homeless and rough sleepers within our district, in addition to providing links for reporting additional street related issues, will be regularly updated to changing events.
