We host open days and events in Swanmore Hampshire regularly. Details here.

Classic car owners raise £182 for JST

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.

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!

DOORS OPEN 1000 to 1230

With something like 50 cars expected at each event, we’ll be in the main car park opposite Barnaby’s. If you are attending, you may arrive any time from 0945, when a marshal will show you to a space where you can display your car. 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!

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.

 

Classic Cars close out the year

CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER FORECAST

This Saturday, Barnaby’s will play host to the last in our series of Classic Car Summer events.  Any pre-1990 vehicles are invited to attend and showcase themselves. Doors open at 10am.

All visitors, kids, dogs and families are welcome too!  Barnaby’s popup coffee shop will be there with teas, coffees and homemade cakes from our friends at Bishops Waltham Country Market.

Our Classic Cars events will return in April 2022.

Classic cars gather at Barnaby’s

Last Saturday, Barnaby’s played host to a unique collection of classic cars stretching as far back as the 1920’s. Five of the cars on display were Austins, including an Austin 7 Swallow, Austin Heavy 12/4 Mulliner, an Austin 10, and two Austin 7 Ruby’s. Younger cars on display included a Lancia Fulvia, a TVR S2, a Mercedes 280 SL, and a 1978 Lincoln that was too big to fit in our car park!

There are some fabulous images now available on www.facebook.com/swanmorecoffee.

Following the success of this event, we will definitely host another one. We are planning to do so in September, and will post details in due course.  Our thanks to all the owners who turned out on Saturday, and to Berty Ferrone for making it happen.

Classic car event planned for 26th June

In celebration of Barnaby’s return to its rightful place as a hub for the village, we we’ll be hosting a collection of privately-owned classic cars on Saturday 26th June. Full details of the cars on show will be confirmed closer to the time, but they already include:

  • 1930 Austin 7 Swallow
  • 1934 Riley Mentone 14/6
  • 1936 Austin 10
  • 1959 Morris Mini
  • 1985 Mercedes 280 SL Sports
  • 1986 Lancia Fulvia

‘Trial days’ announced

The easing of Government restrictions this week allows for non-essential shops and business to open.  Because Barnaby’s is such a vital hub for our community, we are now finalising a plan with the help of the PCC that ensures we can open Barnaby’s as safely as possible, particularly so far as the rules on social gathering are concerned.

Our intention is to run two “trial days” on Saturday 24th April and Saturday 1st May between 10am and midday. Both days will feature a takeaway-only service. The outdoor seating will not be available. We sincerely hope that you will support our trial dates by coming along to enjoy a lovely coffee!
