We frequently host over 60 cars at each event, so you’ll find us in the main car park opposite Barnaby’s (see pic above). If you are planning to display a car or two, you may arrive any time from 0945, when a marshal will show you to a space.
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!
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!
Barnaby’s Summer Schedule kicks off this week. Our opening hours from now until Tuesday 6th September will be:
- Thursday (10-12 and 2-4)
- Friday (10-12 and 2-4)
- Saturday (10-1)
If you are a volunteer and would like to pick up a shift or two, please log in to ShiftController today and grab the shifts you’d like. We look forward to seeing you!
The second in the Classic Cars @ Barnaby’s series was a great success, with a large number of cars on show for the first time. Some came from as far east as Bosham and as far north as Guildford. Word is clearly getting out!
As before, Barnaby’s popup coffee shop was there in support. Event organiser Alastair Walton offered to give all of the days takings to the Jubilee Sailing Trust, and £182 was donated! As luck would have it, JST Ambassador Roger Morfill was in Barnaby’s having a coffee, so we sent him home with a big cheque! The picture shows Sarah Walton handing it over to a very happy Roger.
Thank you to all who came, enjoyed, and donated. Our next Classic Cars @ Barnaby’s event is on 25th June.
