A GLASGOW MP has pledged to help safeguard a popular Govan cafe that suffered its seventh break earlier this week.

The owners of Cafe 13 in Govan said they had been left ‘sad and unsure’ for the future of the business after being targeted by thieves every year since the business opened in 2013.

They claimed that repeated pleas for funding help from heritage project Govan Cross THI for additional security measures including shutters had been ignored.

Chris Stephens, MP for Glasgow South West, said a meeting is planned to help, “secure the long-term future” of the business.

He said: “Cafe 13 is a fantastic community business in Glasgow South West and I was very sad to hear about the break-in to their property.

“I have been working closely with the owners and local groups to improve security and support, including putting in place temporary insurance measures and investigating access to funding for shutters.

“We have another meeting planned this week, and I sincerely hope we can find solutions to secure the long-term future of this much-loved local business.”
