Barnaby’s hosts coffee mornings and get-togethers all the time. Details here, and on our Facebook page.

2024 kicks off

We’re delighted to be back to normal, following the seasonal festivities. There are volunteer shifts available on most days in January, which you can now access through our upgraded ShiftController system. Please log in and help yourselves.

To our customers, we look forward to welcoming you back to Barnaby’s. It’s our 10th year this year, and we’ll announce our plans to celebrate that soon.

Free mince pies this Christmas Week

This Christmas week, you’ll receive a free mince pie with every hot drink at Barnaby’s. For some reason, we think this will be quite popular! Our hours in Christmas week are:

  • Tuesday 19th December (10 to midday)
  • Wednesday 20th December (10 to midday)
  • Thursday 21st December (10 to midday)

Our wonderful volunteers will be back to welcome you in to Barnaby’s at 2pm on Wednesday 3rd January 2024.

Christmas goodies from BW Men’s Shed

On Saturday 16th December, we will welcome the creative chaps from Bishop’s Waltham Men’s Shed.  After the weather unfortunately ruined their recent event in Bishops Waltham, they still have lots of Christmas goodies to sell, so they will be set up outside Barnaby’s from 10am.  Please come and support them.

Inside, we’ll be supporting the works of Trinity Winchester once again. Trinity Winchester addresses the effects of homelessness and vulnerability through specialist practical and emotional support. Head to trinitywinchester.org.uk to find out more.

December at Barnaby’s

Our new Christmas specials are here! Choose from:

  • a yummy homemade gingerbread man and a  delicious gingerbread latte for just £3!  It’s a classic combination that’s well worth a try, particularly on colder days. Bring a friend and try one each!
  • our famous Festive Hot Chocolate now features cream, marshmallows & sprinkles in a large cup, all for just £2. Perfect for our younger customers.
  • finally, our wonderful bakers have made you yummy Snowflake Cookies, available at just £1.50. Come on in to Barnaby’s and have a try!

During Christmas week, Barnaby’s will be open on Tuesday 19th, Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st, when free mince pies will be available to everyone for whom we make a tea or a coffee. We look forward to seeing you then!

Calling all cake bakers!

Once more, we are delighted to be playing our part in the Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning in support of Macmillan Cancer Support. So on Saturday, our amazing volunteers look forward to serving you  with coffee and yummy homemade cake from 10am to 1pm. Save the date! Bring your family and your friends and be part of something truly amazing!

Fancy baking a cake for Macmillan?  Please drop your marvellous creation – large or small –  in to Barnaby’s at 5pm on Friday 29th or at 9am on Saturday 30th. It all counts, so thank you!

Supporting Homestart Hampshire this Saturday

This Saturday, we will be supporting the work of Home-Start Hampshire through our Charity Awareness Scheme.  This scheme raises awareness of local causes, and supports them financially. Even if you just pop in for a coffee, you’ll be doing your part – buying some cake will make it even better!

What do Home-Start Hampshire do?
Being a parent, whatever the situation, can be very challenging. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also coping with issues such as post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple births. That’s when parents need support. That’s when Home-Start Hampshire can help. Head to home-starthampshire.org.uk to find out more about their work.

Barnaby’s set for The Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning!

Almost £30 million has been raised through The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning over the years, and Barnaby’s are delighted to confirm that we’ll be getting involved again in 2023.  Set your calendars for Saturday 30th September and pop to Barnaby’s for a yummy coffee and a slice of homemade cake. We’ll also have some games for our younger visitors to enjoy.

Fancy baking a cake for Macmillan?  If so, please drop your creations with us by 9am on the day itself, or at 5pm the evening before. Please include a list of ingredients. Thank you!

The Irish are coming…

St.Patricks Day is on Friday 17th March. It is an event that commemorates the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and the heritage of the Irish in general. Celebrations first began in the 17th Century, and today they generally involve public parades, festivals, cèilidhs and the wearing of shamrocks.

To mark the occasion, we’ve got a rather awesome Guinness cake coming, made by one of our fabulous volunteer bakers. When it’s gone, it’s gone!
