Lodge Service Wins Marble Arch BID Contract

Lodge_Service_LogoMarble Arch London BID has recently appointed Lodge Service as a partner in its security and resilience portfolio, marking an important development for the organization.

The key focus of this collaboration lies in the Marble Arch Street Team, which was established in August 2016. This dedicated team plays a crucial role in maintaining a visible presence on the streets, promptly addressing instances of theft, robbery, anti-social behavior, and shoplifting. In addition, they provide valuable assistance to vulnerable individuals through welfare checks and referrals to support agencies.

The Street Team operates across the entire BID area, encompassing a wide range of locations from Park Lane in the south to Paddington Green in the north, including Connaught Village to the west and Marylebone to the east. Their services are indispensable for pubs, hotels, shops, late-night venues, restaurants, office occupiers, and schools within the BID area.

Kay Buxton, Chief Executive of Marble Arch London BID, expressed the appreciation for the Street Team’s significant contributions. She is quoted as saying, “Those who live, work, do business and visit Marble Arch understand the valuable service and support our Street Team provides. Whether it is guiding tourists around the BID area, tackling environmental issues, or dealing with crime and anti-social behaviour, our Street Team ensures the district is a welcoming place for all and helps to inspire confidence for businesses, their staff, customers, guests, and the wider community. “We look forward to working with Lodge to ensure our Street Team is equipped to take on new initiatives and continue to offer much-needed support to all our stakeholders and partners across the BID area.”

Darren Conway, Group Managing Director of Lodge Service, expressed his delight at being awarded this prestigious contract with Marble Arch London BID. He said, “Lodge has always been at the forefront of community safety, pioneering the ‘Business District Support Officers’ in 1994, with today seeing us Spearheading the ‘Safer Business Action Days’ in partnership with Policing. To be awarded this prestigious contract with Marble Arch London BID, allows us to work together in delivering to the community the reassurance and safety they deserve, making Marble Arch BID area the destination of choice.”
