During a major refurbishment of City Hall in 2009 Belfast City Council sought the advice of its residents to name a new coffee shop. More than 1400 people voted in an online poll and the winning name was ‘The Bobbin’. The popular eatery is named after the city’s once-thriving linen industry, a catalyst for our industrial revolution in the 1820s. A bobbin is a spindle or cylinder on which yarn or thread is wound. Bobbins were also used on a larger scale in other industries such as ropemaking.
The coffee shop is managed by Loaf Catering and Cafes (link opens in new window) providing training and work experience places for people with a learning disability, autism or Asperger’s. All profits go to parent organisation NOW Group (link opens in new window), a social enterprise supporting people with learning difficulties and autism into jobs with a future.
