The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive. Together with the North East LEP you can help us.
The North East LEP have secured funding to match some businesses crowdfunding project 50% for up to £5000 so this means if we raise £2000 they will increase this by £1000, which is amazing! We are eligible for this funding!! Yippee.

We are now selling gift vouchers for you to redeem at Caboose when we are able to re-open...
Why didn't you do this before? we hear you ask?? Well at the beginning of lockdown we honestly didn't know if we would survive as we had only opened in October 2019 and it would have been morally wrong of us to take money from our amazing customers knowing there could be a chance of us going bust... BUT NOW... we can confidently say that we can come through this.
With the development of Caboose Fresh products and Caboose Produce we have sustained being able to pay a few bills and it looks like we are heading for early July opening. (Fingers Crossed)
We have already made some improvements to the building and want to keep doing this until we reach our vision of opening up the original launch ramp for dining and events ... one day!
We will use this additional funding from the North East LEP to continue our building upgrades including making adjustments to satisfy regulations with regards to COVID-19 and the safety of our customers. We want to give you a venue in Blyth to be proud of.
