A few local people have been live streaming or setting challenges to keep you entertained. If you’re still at work, then maybe you just need something to break up the weekend, other than a trip to the shop and a walk around.Continue reading LOCKDOWN LIVE STREAMS & ACTIVITIES
You might have a bit more free time on your hands of late and find more time to discover new music. So I’ve put together some songs, past and present from Scunthorpe and North Lincs artists and bands but if you can add to it, please do!
Local independent & original artistsContinue reading STRAIGHT OUTTA SCUNTHORPE // LOCKDOWN PLAYLIST 2020
Who are the Saviours? Well they are a local 4 Piece Originals Alternative Rock Band. With band members, Jonny Bilton – Guitar/Vocals, Sam Gosiewski – Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals, Alex Staton – Bass Guitar/Backing Vocals & Nathanial Weatherall – Drums/Percussion.
You probably won’t have had the pleasure of seeing them perform live yet as they’ve only had one live gig but I hope that when this is all over you will head out, pay a couple of quid and attend a local gig to show your support.
I love original bands, there’s just something quite special about seeing an originals band for the first time. You could discover your new favourite song and become a lifelong fan. In some cases you just never know how far the band will go, but isn’t it great if they start playing bigger venues and you can say “I saw them down my local”.Continue reading INTERVIEW WITH // “SAVIOURS” BAND
Last night, I just could not be bothered to cook. I’d seen on social media some tasty looking food boxes on Ashby based Indian takeaway “Miah’s Kitchen”, which I kept meaning to try. So last night was the night.Continue reading FOOD REVIEW // MIAH’S KITCHEN

Fancy an Indian takeaway then this is one we highly recommend. They also seem to do a variety of different curries like Sri Lankan, Lebanese, Persian, Indo- Chinese & Thai. There are various banquet options but we only needed enough for 2 people.Continue reading QUICK REVIEW // MESSINGHAM TANDOORI BANQUET MEAL

Message to our customers and colleagues.
The welfare of our customers and colleagues is of the utmost importance during this challenging time with the rapidly developing Coronavirus situation. In light of recent government communication and advice we have made the very difficult decision to close our venue until further notice.
We will keep you informed of any changes to the current situation and wish all of our customers, colleagues and friends well. We look forward to seeing you again very soon 🍸🍾🍹🥂🥃
Following the developments, we’ve decided that Saturday is too far away and the risk too great.
We are respectfully closed from now until further notice.
It’s worrying when our little project is more responsible and swift to act than those who can really make a difference. We hope that financial support reaches the people who need it right now and quickly. Now is not the time for a trickle down tickle. This will hit us but we recognise that there’s many people out there who it will hit harder.
To all our volunteers and young people:
You can still access us, if you need us.
A Youth worker will be available between 2-4pm Monday – Friday to see young people on an appointment, one to one basis. We’ll email you to let you know how to book (part of the risk management is the booking, don’t just turn up!).
We’ve set up Skype and that will be staffed between 12-2pm Monday to Friday for those that can’t/don’t want to leave their house.
To anyone else that may need us: The above applies to you too. Just send us a message and, if we can, we will.
We’re keeping busy as a team whilst we’re healthy. We’re all safe and we will be back. And, we’ll treat this as an opportunity to make the place and the project better. Let’s all get better.
Thinking of you all and wishing you the safest, happiest crisis possible. Stay safe, from the Cafe Indie Team. ❤💛🤍
