Lola Vintage Ice Cream Van Activity at Peverel court care

To celebrate Peverel Court Care being recognised by as a Top 20 Care Home Group in the UK in their 2022 Awards, we hired the Lola vintage ice cream van to visit us to serve delicious ice cream to both our residents and staff. 


Lola, the vintage ice cream van (link to:, was born in 1973. She’s been serving delicious ice creams and waffles for private events, weddings, anniversaries, special birthdays and corporate events ever since. They cater for all dietary requirements, with treats suitable for vegetarians, dairy intolerance and gluten free. 

Reminiscing about the past

Our resident Christopher James was one of many of our residents who thoroughly enjoyed trying various ice creams from the vintage van.

Christopher reminisced about working as a cold store porter for Wall’s ice cream in the 1970’s. He worked 3 summers in a row between July and September for £20 a week! He laughed explaining: “£20 a week was a lot back then!”

Christopher enjoyed the quiet village areas as he travelled between north and south Oxfordshire delivering stock. He said he preferred the ice cream back then: “it’s not as creamy as it once was!”
