Caffe Velo Verde - Community Food Boxes Available
The Cycle Friendly Coffee Shop
Bill and Vini have recently taken over the business and have yet to meet many of you. That said they are very conscious of the small community they’ve joined and even more aware of the difficult times that may lie ahead for local people. The business has access to reliable, good quality food suppliers and in this strange new world it seems sensible to Bill and Vini that they extend their weekly orders to include orders from the local community. Though it’s not their intention to become a village shop, they strongly believe in the value of supporting their local community in a time of need.
Food boxes, for the time being, can be collected from Caffe Velo Verde on Friday mornings from 8.30 am or can be delivered to your door within 2 miles of Screveton with contactless payment. To order, please call 07523 654062 before 8pm on Tuesdays.
Whether you are a cyclist looking for a place to meet, recharge and unwind, or a local looking for a relaxing unique coffee shop we will welcome you to Caffe Velo Verde. We aim to provide a place where you can relax, feel comfortable, chat and enjoy great coffee, food and enjoy time with friends. Our coffee shop has already gained a reputation as somewhere uniquely relaxing and comfortable. We are on a farm so there is plenty to see, take a walk around and see sheep or goats, chickens, edible woodlands as well as the unique statues in the fields or take the 3 mile nature trail. Or just sit with your coffee and cake. Link to website: https://caffeveloverde.wordpress.com/

Fearless Youth Association
We run a safe space and the Basement studio at 167 Alfreton Road, whose music has been recognised and won awards at local, regional and national levels. We also have a training facility at 151-153 Alfreton road where we offer digital storytelling, media and fashion programs and countryside / environmental programs in partnership with Farmeco. These three spaces enable us to provide safe space, training and placement opportunities and active lifestyle with opportunities for the young people to interact and engage with one another actively. This is through training, skills development, music and digital contents production, organising and managing events and activities. Link to website: www.fyaonline.com
Mojatu Foundation is a Registered charity which transforms communities through media, gender equality, health and training. We develop the capacity and skills of socially and economically disadvantaged and ‘hard-to-reach’ groups, in particular but not exclusively women, girls and young people of African and Caribbean communities, in such a way that they are better able to identify, help and meet their needs and to participate more fully in society.

GAIN aims to promote growth, cohesion, resilience and sustenance amongst and between African groups. This can only be achieved by the identification of the needs of African communities in Nottingham to ensure that specific solutions tailored to the needs of the people are provided. African groups will be given the support they require to survive and be effective to their members. There are a good number of disengaged African groups in Nottingham that are not functional; having a body that supports them in manpower and finances will ensure that the groups are sustainable and can cater to the needs of their members.
