Ten years ago the idea was simply to have a bit of fun with the ice cream bike. It went down so well that Steve had to buy another three to keep up with the demand.
Providing a perfect photo opportunity, these ice cream bicycles always raise a smile.
Debbie and Steve first met on the miner’s strike in 1984.
Steve was a policeman with the Cambridgeshire Force. He met Debbie, a local girl from a small mining village, in the only pub that the police were welcome.
Married for 33 years they have four children.
Debbie worked in the caring profession for many years. More recently she has concentrated on voluntary work in the community.
When Debbie was a girl she helped her dad working on an Ice Cream van in Chesterfield. Once set up on a pitch he left her to it whilst he worked elsewhere.
‘I often had threats by rival Ice Cream vans if they thought we were in their area. I never thought that I would one day be serving Ice Cream again and actually enjoying it’.
Now retired from the Force after 36 years and after stints as both a Cambridge Chauffeur and as a Security Manager, he is now concentrating on expanding the ice cream bicycles business.
