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!
It is Valentines Day, so come in with your partner, husband, wife, tennis coach, or significant other on Tuesday and we’ll give them a free coffee! One of our fabulous cake bakers has created some heart-shaped shortbread for everyone to enjoy as well.
Love is in the air? We think so!
We’re delighted to be back to normal this week, following the seasonal festivities. There are volunteer shifts available on most days in the coming week, so please log in and help yourselves! Our volunteer cake bakers are already getting ready, so we look forward to bringing it all together again on Tuesday at 2pm.
To our customers, we look forward to welcoming you back to Barnaby’s, and to restoring our position as an active hub for the community once more.
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:
- Monday 19th December (10 to midday)
- Tuesday 20th December (10 to midday)
- Wednesday 21st December (10 to midday)
Our wonderful volunteers will return to full service again on 3rd January 2023.
As part of our ongoing support for charities with a connection to the village, we will be supporting the work of Trinity Winchester between now and Christmas. Our “Tap n’Go” payment option will be available to you if you wish to make a personal donation, and we’ll be adding half of Saturdays takings to that.
Trinity Winchester addresses the effects of homelessness and vulnerability through specialist practical and emotional support. Theses effects can include addiction, physical and mental ill health, poverty, social isolation and domestic abuse. Head to trinitywinchester.org.uk to find out more.
Our December offer is 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 those colder days. Bring a friend and try one each!
Barnaby’s fabulous Pokito collapsable reuseable takeaway coffee mugs are now available at just £10 for two! They make for great stocking-fillers, and are very easy to wrap.
Finally, we have a limited supply of lovely Apple & Ginger juice from local suppliers Hill House Farm. Pressed from Hampshire apples and finished with a hint of freshly crushed root ginger, this is a zippy and fruity alternative. Available at just £1.50.
For this Autumn half term week, our hours will be slightly different.

For those wishing to volunteer during Half Term week, it is now possible to pick your preferred options in ShiftController. We look forward to seeing you all!
Barnaby’s is 8 years old this week. In celebration, there are two cool things going on:
- we have a series of 60 slides on the big screen showing some of the fabulous things that our volunteers have achieved over the past 8 years. Well done everyone!
- all our customers can enjoy a ‘Buy One, Get One Free’ offer on all hot & cold drinks this week.
