Night Czar, Amy Lamé visits Wimbledon Town Centre

Mayor of London’s Night Czar delighted to see our “diverse offering with impressive co-operation”

Just over a year ago, The Mayor of London appointed a ‘Night Czar’ to make London’s night-time economy even better.  Amy Lamé is a writer, broadcaster, DJ, performer and campaigner and has run her own performance night in Vauxhall for many years. On Friday 1 December she visited Wimbledon upon the invitation of Love Wimbledon BID at expressed her delight at “our diverse offering with impressive co-operation”.

We were very honoured to have Amy Lamé accept our invitation to join us. Wimbledon Police organised a tour of the night time economy for her with Merton Councillors and Merton Licensing staff as well as Love Wimbledon. We visited a number of the late night operators in Wimbledon and she heard first hand about the strong partnership working in Merton that enables a safe and diverse evening time and how this had positively impacted on the businesses and significant reduction in crime over the past few years.
