Meet Lily, an original 1980’s Bedford CF Ice Cream Van, adorned with retro candy stripes, ready to serve luxury ice cream and sweet treats to you, along with her owner Poppy.
She has been lovingly dolled up and given a new lease of life, and loves bringing an added element of sunshine, happiness and nostalgia to any occasion.
She especially loves attending:
Birthdays - children and adults alike (‘Ice Cream Smash’ Photoshoots also offered!)
Corporate Rewards Events
Lily is a real crowd pleaser, and is sure to be a long lasting talking point, making your special event one to remember.
She will make a fabulous addition to your wedding or party photographs, as well as delighting your guests with the delectable treats that she has to offer on board!
Lily also loves to join in at all kinds of local public events, including:
New business/shop openings
Horse and dog shows
If you are organising an event and would like Poppy’s Vintage Ices to attend, selling ice creams, sorbets and sweets please get in touch with Poppy to discuss your requirements and receive a quote.
Lily is also available to hire for photo shoots, television and film work, with or without ice cream.
Lily is available to hire between 1st April and 30th September, come rain or shine, within a 25 mile radius of Caldicot, Monmouthshire, South Wales (some venues slightly further away than this may be considered if access is easy, such as straight off the motorway. Please get in contact with Poppy to check if your venue is possible for us to travel to). In the event of our British weather not being too kind, so long as she can fit, she will happily join you inside a marquee, barn or other large indoor space. The ice cream van freezer arrives at your event fully charged, so there will be no noise or fumes from needing to run the engine or running a generator. Feel free to set up any gazebos or sun shelters next to or over her too, she can be flexible to help keep your guests happy and comfortable! We also have colour coordinated umbrellas for your guests to use whilst in the queue if needed to stay dry
Rest assured in the knowledge that Poppy’s Vintage Ices has Public Liability Insurance, comprehensive vehicle insurance, up to date Food Safety training and is registered as a food business with Monmouthshire County Council, with a Food Hygiene Rating of 5. Paperwork can be provided to you on request.
