Red Cross Buns for Easter Week

In support of our donations to the work of the International Red Cross in the Ukraine, our friends at Bishops Waltham Country Market have made us some fabulous Red Cross buns! They will be in Barnaby’s on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday only, so grab yours while you can!

We’ll be closed from 4.30pm on Thursday to start Barnaby’s Annual Spring Clean. We’ll be back at 10am on Saturday 23rd April to welcome the return of our Classic Car weekends.

We loved it!

Barnaby’s hosted “Hamish” and “Mouse” from local charity Helping Hooves on Saturday. Loads of you came out to meet, brush and love our two new furry friends, and donated almost £200 to the cause!

Speaking to Abbie at the end of the morning, she said “We loved it! Thank you so much for having us, and for helping to raise our profile.”  It was Abbies birthday too, which made the whole thing all the more special. Apparently, she particularly enjoying having Alastair (BBT) and Gary (Village CSO) singing “Happy Birthday” to her quite loudly across the car park…

The Irish are coming…

St.Patricks Day is on Thursday. 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!

Special hours confirmed for Christmas Week

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.

 

Charity Awareness Day – Saturday 6th November

This Saturday and all next week, we will be championing the work of the Royal British Legion. It has particular resonance this year, as it marks the 100th Anniversary of the RBL. There will be lots of slides on the big screen in Barnaby’s recognising the events of Armistice Day,  the daily Act of Remembrance at the Menin Gate in Ypres, and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in London. As always with our Charity Awareness Days, half of Saturday takings will be given to the RBL.

Please head to barnabys.coffee/charityawarenessscheme to find out more about our Charity Awareness Days and to put forward a charity of your choice that we could support as part of the scheme.
