What is Scunthorpe is well-known for?

Scunthorpe is an industrial town situated in North Lincolnshire, which sits within the ceremonial county of Lincolnshire. It is the county’s third biggest settlement, with a population of over 80,000 residents. An industrial town, Scunthorpe is the UK’s largest steel processing centre, often referred to as the ‘Industrial Garden Town’.

The town actually first came about due to the exploitation of the local resources of ironstone, and the formation of iron works that accumulated from the 1850s onwards, increasing the local population rapidly. The town became an urban district during 1891, and then a municipal borough in 1936. Scunthorpe appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as ‘Escumesthorpe’, from the Old Norse ‘Skumasporp’ meaning ‘Skuma’s homestead’, a historical site which is believed to be in the town centre close to where the modern Market Hill sits.

Scunthorpe is home to a rich and bustling culture, with the Scunthopre Co-operative Junior Choir even winning the title of BBC Radio 3 Choir of the Year in 2008 at the Grand Finals in London’s Royal Festival Hall. The choir consists of 90 members aged between 9 and 19. The town was also the setting of a 2012 Cultural Olympiad community opera called Cycle Song, composed by Tim Sutton, about an ex-steel-worker and Olympic cyclist called Lal White. The choir even participated in the production, along with a thousand locals and the Proper Job Theatre Company.

Attractions in Scunthorpe include the North Lincolnshire Museum sits near the railway station on Oswald Road, as well as the Visual Arts Centre, formally the church of St John the Evangelist. There is also the Plowright Theatre, dedicated to John Plowright, which is situated on Laneham Street. The Baths Hall, another popular venue, hosts theatrical events with a capacity of almost 2000 guests.

What security accreditations do Taybar Hold?

We are an SIA (Security Industry Authority) licensed contractor, meaning we are legally permitted to work within security-related matters throughout the UK. The SIA is a statutory organisation, and before their introduction during 2004, a national licensing system such as this didn’t exist in the UK’s security sector. Local councils were having to licence workers themselves, often skipping out crucial background and experience checks in the process.

Today, the SIA has given countless security professionals the chance to raise the standards of the industry to the level it always deserved to be, providing proper safety and protection for those in need. When you work with Taybar, you can rest assured that you’ll always be working with fully licensed, SIA-approved security guards and officers.

All of Taybar Security’s services are audited and assessed by the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) against best practices and industry benchmarks for excellence. We are also registered with the NSI directly and are certified under their Guarding Gold scheme, the organisation’s highest certification tier that combines ISO9001 accreditation and Product Certification of our related security services.
