We are collecting for two causes closely associated with events in the Ukraine. They are:
- UNICEF – supporting the half a million children in Ukraine who have already been affected as the conflict enters its eighth year under heightened circumstances.
- ASSOCIATION OF UKRAINIANS IN GREAT BRITAIN – working with HM GOV to deliver diplomatic, cultural, economic, financial and sporting responses on an international scale.
For those who feel able to support these causes, please use the collection tin or the Tap n’Go pad.
In partnership with Pete Yeoman of yeomansyearbook.org.uk, we are pleased to confirm dates for the Classic Cars @ Barnaby’s events in 2022.

PRE-1990 CARS WELCOME
NO NEED TO REGISTER – JUST TURN UP
DOORS OPEN 1000 to 1230
With something like 50 cars expected at each event, we’ll be in the main car park opposite Barnaby’s. If you are attending, you may arrive any time from 0945, when a marshal will show you to a space where you can display your car. The event will be supported by Barnaby’s “popup” coffee shop, serving coffee, tea and yummy homemade cakes made by our friends at Bishops Waltham Country Market. Barnaby’s will nominate a charity on the day, and all our proceeds will go to that charity.
Fingers crossed for the weather!
Barnaby’s commitment to community outreach ensures that we share our proceeds with local causes through a Charity Awareness Scheme. This scheme has been on hold for almost 2 years, so we have recently been working hard to re-start the program. Pop these dates in your diary:
Saturday 19th March
Based in Swanmore, Helping Hooves provide a wonderful home to a number of therapy horses. Abbie and the team will be outside Barnaby’s with some of their ponies for you to meet!
Saturday 9th April
‘Meon Valley HomeStart’
Being a parent, whatever the circumstances, can be challenging. That’s were HomeStart steps in, and we’re pleased to be able to raise their profile today.
Saturday 17th May
‘Meon Valley Lions’
The Meon Valley Lions are part of a service organisation that has over 1.4 million members in 205 countries. Their aim is to provide assistance in our community for those in need. We’re delighted to support them.

Our Charity Awareness Days help raise the profile of local charities and good causes. We are delighted to be able to restart this program after a 2-year pause, beginning with a return of the wonderful team from Helping Hooves on Saturday 19th March.
Based here in Swanmore, Helping Hooves use some amazing horses and ponies to assist people experiencing change caused by illness, injury, recovery or other trauma. Come and meet them!
Sadly we won’t be open this Valentines Day, so come in with your partner, husband, wife, tennis coach, or significant other on Tuesday 15th or Wednesday 16th February and we’ll give them a free coffee!
Love is in the air? We think so!
Barnaby’s will go a bit Scottish this week, in support of the mighty wordsmith Rabbie Burns. Your favourite coffee will come with a yummy (and free) piece of delicious Scottish shortbread!
Born in 1759, Burns is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland – a fact celebrated on the date of his birthday – 25th January. We’ll be dishing out the shortbread on Tuesday and Wednesday.
A Big Barnaby’s Shout Out goes to anyone wondering whether the New Year might be the time to take on something new and exciting. Volunteering is a wonderful way to meet people, learn a new skill, support your community, or fill a little spare time.
If you think that might be you, we’d love to meet. Find out more at https://barnabys.coffee/volunteer.
Looking for that easy-to-wrap stocking filler for the coffee lover in your life? Excellent news, because Barnaby’s re-useable & collapsible coffee cups are now in stock! Choose from green or black for just £10.
Note that during Christmas week Barnaby’s is open on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 10-12.
Many of you have been enjoying Barnaby’s in the run-up to Christmas – either to meet up with friends for the first time in a while, or to sit with your laptop and research potential present ideas, or to give your kids that special end-of-term treat. To help support this need, Barnaby’s will have special opening hours during Christmas Week:
- Monday 20th December 10am to noon
- Tuesday 21st December 10am to noon
- Wednesday 22nd December 10am to noon
Barnaby’s will be back on Tuesday 4th January 2022.
From today and right through to the Wednesday before Christmas, you’ll receive a free mince pie with every hot drink at Barnaby’s!
For some reason, we think this will be quite popular…
