Sooooo……… The weather has been abysmal! As I’m writing this, the weather has been sunny (not for long)…… Then rained……. Very windy & now it’s sleeting!?
Luckily, when we visited Manchester earlier this month we survived the rain. However, it was bitterly cold! The lovely people of deansgate were queuing up to try our ice cream with coats zipped up whilst donning woolly hats. This just proves ice cream is enjoyed all year round!
we became something of a tourist attraction when we were there. With people taking pictures of our lovely shiny trike. We also got a few wedding enquiries on the day, with one being as far as Reading! We explained, we’d be more than happy to travel anywhere.
We serve our award winning ice cream at weddings mainly in Merseyside, Cheshire, Cumbria, greater Manchester, Lancashire & Yorkshire regions. We love this area as there’s some beautiful venues tucked away!
We missed the first day of spring by 1 day, the sun shone all day the following day & I was sat at home gutted ?! However, because we were so impressed by ‘makers market’ in Spinningfields. We’ve decided to go back twice in April……. Cross your fingers, get your friends & family to cross theirs too. We’re due some good weather and April is were it should start?!
seriously though, the makers market in Manchester is a great set up. It brings together all local traders…… From artists to pie makers! It’s extremely impressive, so get yourself down there. You won’t regret it!!
We can’t wait for the summer months to arrive & the diary is Filling up fast! Artisan food events, wedding fairs, summer fayres & of course some lovely weddings!
we can’t wait!
get in touch to have your favourite Cheshire Farm Ice Cream flavours at your event!
Our first post!!
Sooooo……… It’s been a very busy week, so we thought we’d do our first post to keep you all updated!
Firstly, we’ve got our shiny new van so we can transport our trikes to you in style!! We’ve fitted it out with a huge ramp to make logistics nice & easy. Next step to get it sign written so we can be seen across the North West everyday.
Our hygiene score!
We’ve had a visit this week by the ladies of St Helens Council who were extremely nice & helpful and were very impressed by our cleanliness……… This led to us being granted a 5* hygiene rating! We were delighted with this & our standards will not drop at all for all our future customers. When you attend weddings & events, cleanliness is imperative! Anyone who has attended ‘The Ice Cream Farm’ in Cheshire will know how extremely impressive it is, this is exactly why we decided to sell their products. And of course they take their hygiene seriously & have many certifications to prove this.
Weddings……. Weddings…… Weddings!
The biggest addition this week……… Is dates in our diary, lots & lots of exciting times in the spring/summer coming up. It will take us across Cheshire, Merseyside, Lancashire, Cumbria & Greater Manchester!! We can’t wait to scoop your favourite flavours of ice cream at all the upcoming lovely weddings across the country. 2016 will be a great year!!
Vintage is massively ‘in’ these days, and you won’t be surprised to know….. We love it! Vintage to us means ‘classy, classic, retro!’ So when Joanne turned up with a bright green battered old table, I did wonder what on earth she thought we could use it for?! However, she’s got a great eye for these things & told me to have a go at up cycling it as we’ve done it before. As soon as I touched it with the belt sander, I realised it was a classic! It’s solid oak, needed a bit of a repair here n there. But it’s now been sanded, chalk painted, varnished, legs repaired & hinges repaired, waxed & is now our shabby chic trike table for all our sauces, toppings & napkins!!
The first sunny day
We decided today was a good day to go out & take some new pictures of the Ice Cream Trike. We didn’t drive for long but ended up in Upholland and found a lovely spot……. Joanne won the competition with this pearl of a shot!
The trike looks great in the local countryside…….. It’ll look even better at your wedding (let’s hope the weather is just as good!)
Thanks for having a look at the first attempt at our blog……… We can only get better haha!!
Welcome to our blog. We will be posting our latest news and updates in this section and hope you will join us. We look forward to our future adventures with Vintage Delight Ice Cream.
