Well hello Spring 2016 ~ the daffodils are out & ice cream scooping is in the air!
Last year was our most successful with Florence. Not only were we the busiest we have ever been but personally it was the most fulfilling. We drove thousands of miles & waved at hundreds of people along the way.
We started the year off with Matilda & drove all the way to Sandown Racecourse in Surrey, the Volksworld Show had asked us to show ‘Matilda’ as she was on ‘George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces’. She also managed to get the coveted front cover of ‘Camper & Bus’ magazine too! A complete honour to say the least!
Florence’s year started off at Gloucester Quays ~ we have been there for a few years now & throughly enjoy our time not only serving ice creams but working with a wonderful events team.
Mark & I managed to find ourselves on the TV ~ again, Central News this time, it was live too!! I was very nervous but few questions later it was all over ~ phew!
We love working locally & for us Shrewsbury Food Festival is up there as one of our most favourite
events of the year! Florence has such strong local support it is quite overwhelming! Oh & I think people love the ice cream too! Mark did a wonderful interview on Shropshire Radio to promote the festival.
Throughout the season we do very few VW shows ~ we feel CamperJam ~ Stanford Hall & Dubdayz Summerfest are some of the best ~ not just because we are there :O) but they still retain their laid back family feel.
We worked with some wonderful corporate clients this past year too from KitchenCraft ~ Footman James ~ Mamas & Papas & the fabulous Meguiars. Florence really seems to appeal to everyone.
Florence found herself in a 2015 calendar ~ the month of August! Myself & Florence even managed to find ourselves inside a book! by the talented Miranda Dickinson!
As if our year could not get any better our last outing was to the Classic Car Show at the NEC! Florence sat amongst the best of the best on the Meguiars stand ~ we were serving ice cream too! What a way to end the most wonderful year!
Well here’s to another busy & exciting year ~ thank you all for your support ~ as you know we are your biggest fans! we wouldn’t be here without you!
