The Lord Mayor of the City of London is leading a Reopening the City Initiative, as we seek to rebuild from the COVID-19, to ensure that the City recovers as fast as possible and once again becomes a great place to live, work, play and invest.
Later on in the year, the City of London Corporation will be delivering a Recovery Campaign and the Reopening the City Initiative is kick starting this work by highlighting the return of businesses, hospitality, culture and many other sectors to the Square Mile.
The first Reopening Week from 12th April saw Lord Mayor visits to the Royal Exchange, One New Change, Middlesex Street, the Bloomberg Arcade and Fleet Street, seeing the return of non-essential retail and hospitality. The Lord Mayor visited offices at JP Morgan, WeWork and N+1 Singer to see how employers are adapting their workplaces to make them safe for the return of workers.
The Lord Mayor reopened the Barbican Community Library and visited Howden Group to highlight their work rolling out the City Gift Card to their workers and encouraging this across the insurance sector. The Lord Mayor’s activity has featured in Cityam, the Telegraph, the Financial Times and the Times, as well as across on social media.
