It’s the best news. We have been resoundingly re-elected to manage the Angel for another five years by 86% of businesses who voted YES. We have secured the support of 93% of the amount of rateable value.

Says angel.london CEO Christine Lovett: “This is a brilliant victory! We are delighted to be able to continue serving businesses who have placed such faith in us. We are thrilled the Angel will continue to receive the services of the police and recycling teams who have worked tirelessly to make the Angel safe and clean.

“This result is a great reflection of the amount of work we have all done to make the Angel a better place. Local residents have even written to businesses to encourage their support. It’s a perfect example of a town centre coming together.”

In order to be re-elected, under Local Government legislation we needed to secure over 50% of the number of businesses who voted, and also over 50% of the total amount of their rateable value.

Says David Werthiem of Japanese Gallery: “I am not surprised this result is so good. As soon as a business gets involved with angel.london and starts using their services, you realise how much time and money they save you. And being able to make one phone call and get graffiti or planning issues sorted out is an invaluable service.”

Our Christmas lights are being installed today – we look forward to a brilliant festive season at the Angel.
