As we get to the end of the year, Mabels’ second year of being on the roads of Devon, we look back on 2014 with great happy memories. Mabel met lots of new people and also customers from the year before…she’s beginning to get a right little following now!
The lovely thing about being in Devon, is that she meets lots of lovely local people, but also we met lots of lovely tourists from all over the country on their lovely holidays by the sea, and the one thing that they all had in common is that they love Mabel and and love the ice cream that we sell! The flavour of the year was of course clotted cream vanilla , closely followed byMabels’ rich chocolate – delicious!!
Some of the highlights were Victorian Week at Ilfracombe, the fantastic costumes and we felt there for a moment that we were actaully in a different era. Also the same weekend was the morris minor’s on tour, what a great procession of them, it was great fun!
Mabel loved the Dog’s Show’s too, the Dog’s Trust event in Braunton is always a highlight, and the dogs enjoy the ice creams too. They dont last very long with the dog’s though!!
Also the vintage car rallies, with mabel being vintage too, she loves meeting other oldies, and Braunton Wheels was great, Mabel’s second year of doing it, and we love all the old cars, from the minis to the jaguars to the pick up trucks!
Mabels’ first time event was the Beer Festival in Croyde, which was a lovely weekend of vintage games on the green, and a great array of beers and ciders in the village hall, all in aid of a great cause, lets hope we do it all again in 2015! the sun shone all weekend and it was good fun for all the family.
Big Sunday in August was Mabel’s other highlight, and we love being part of the VW festival weekend, such fab vehicles and great stalls and fantastic food, and yes the sun shine came out again and we all had a great time!! can’t wait till 2015!!
A big thank you to all the lovely customers we met this year, both old and new, and the lovely brides, the charity organsiers and the owners of all the vintage cars, the tourists, the doggies and everyone who enjoyed the ice cream, thank you all very much and see you next year!!
