Meet the Neighbourhood Watch on Thursday 23rd January

Charity Awareness Day – Royal British Legion

This Saturday, Barnaby’s will focus on the work of the Royal British Legion as part of our Charity Awareness Scheme. The RBL was formed in May 192 with the objective of bringing together four national organisations of ex-Servicemen that had established themselves after the First World War:

  • National Association of Discharged Sailors & Soldiers
  • British National Federation of Discharged & Demobilised Sailors & Soldiers
  • Comrades of The Great War
  • Officers’ Association

The amalgamation of these diverse bodies can be attributed largely to two men: Field Marshal Earl Haig and Tom Lister. Lord Haig served as President of The RBL until his death in 1928. For more information, head to britishlegion.org.uk.

“Cuppa & Colour” is back

“Cuppa & Colour” is a fun way for your kids to get stuck in to a little bit of creativity in a lovely safe environment. All this week, Barnaby’s will have drawing ideas available for the U10’s, while you sit back and enjoy a nice velvety coffee and some free wifi!

What will you do with your new found freedom? Read a book? Catch up with friends? Launch a new business? Either way, you’ll find drawings and pencils ready for little ones when you get here. Pin their creations up on the noticeboard to win a prize at the end of the week!
