I was born in 1963 and from the age of 11, I have sold ice-cream either from a van, or from an ice-cream barrow. My uncles had pitches all over London including Regents Park, Hyde Park, Houses of Parliament, and Madam Tussauds. Today we only have ice-cream vans, and do most major shows around the country.
My uncles have now retired and I run the business with the help of my family and staff. Our vans are the best in the country, they are all Whitby Morrison Built and we now have 11, none of which are over 5 years old. They are all identical and most of them are nearly new, as we buy new vans every year, and sell off the older ones.
