We’ve been over in Rimini, Italy exhibiting at Sigep and bring you the latest from there. This month we’re also proud to introduce our very first Ice Cream Van built on a MAN chassis. We’ve got opportunities, fundraising updates and have a catch up with another member of the Whitby Morrison team. Welcome to February…
Welcome to a new decade, we’d like to wish each and every one of you a healthy and prosperous 2020. The Mobiling industry has progressed significantly during the last decade and this one will be no different. We begin 2020 with a look at what’s to come, celebrate more community involvement and learn more about another member of the Whitby Morrison team.
As another decade draws to a close, we can look back proudly at how far the Mobiling industry has progressed. There’ll always be downs, but there have been so many more positives. This month we look back at the Street Food Live exhibition and the new Chocmobile. We also talk about the latest charity support from Whitby Morrison as well as having a chat with one our of longstanding team members.
We’re getting back on track after what proved to be a fantastic two days at the Whitby Event. Fantastic support from both the industry and the weather. This month we look back at the event, review the charity fundraising, look at a new concept from Whitby Morrison and much more.
It’s been a mixed month of sunshine and showers, cold mornings and warm days. This month it’s all about the Whitby Event 2019. We take a look at what’s taking place, who’s going to be there, what vans will be on show and what we have for you take away. There is some great news from Pinky and Friends too.
The bank holiday weekend wasn’t a bad way to draw the summer months to a close. This month we look ahead to the Whitby Event and what we have in store for you. We also look back at the recent Commercial Motor article and rekindle fond memories with some classic adverts!
Whitby Morrison are delighted to officially announce the dates for the 2019 Event. The two-day celebration will be held on Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 October at the Weaver Stadium in Nantwich.
The event will follow a similar format to previous years with a vast array of trade partners, the latest and vintage Ice Cream Vans, free catering for all and… a bar!
Tickets will be available in due course – please wait for the announcement for the request process to open.
All Ice Cream Vans are beautiful in their own right and everyone has a favourite model. For myself (Ed) and a high percentage of the Mobiling fraternity, there is none more iconic than the Morrison CF.
Oxford Diecast have produced a stunning range of Ice Cream Van models in recent years but have outdone themselves with this unbelievable Morrison CF replica.
Built using tooling from the Mr Whippy CF in the Whitby Morrison collection, there’s no detail left unturned and it even includes replica price stickers on the windows!
The models are available to order from Oxford Diecast by clicking the link below, priced at £16.95. Keep an eye out for the Mister Softee model due out later this year.
Its been a busy time of late for Mobiling in the media. Here at Whitby Morrison we always endeavour to work with the media to try and portray our industry in the most positive of lights.
With the emissions story bubbling on, Whitby Morrison have worked hard to present a more positive look at things. We have recently taken part in interviews with several radio stations including a positive piece on BBC Radio 4’s You and Yours – their biggest audience show.
BBC’s The One Show are about to show a piece talking about the positives of the industry and the plans for the future. Both BBC pieces included interviews with Mobilers John Bonar and Moz Murray too.
Beyond this, Whitby Morrison also spent the day with Commercial Motor magazine as they wrote a seasonal piece on the Ice Cream industry. The 8-page article is expected to be published in one of the early August editions.
Keep an eye on the Whitby Morrison social media channels for further information.
The 2020 edition of the Guinness World Records book is due for release on 05 September 2019. We are optimistic that the World’s Largest Parade of Ice Cream Vans will be featured in there along with a selection of images from the day.
The world record set by 84 Mobilers on 16 October 2018 received national media coverage and was supported by Guinness World Records themselves. They sent up an adjudicator and their media team; there are not many record attempts that receive this!
We’ll keep an eye on things and let you know via social media if we find out anything more.
