Colin Iles from Hampshire Ices tells us "John Carter from Carters Steam Fair back in 1997 saw a rusty old Morris shell and said we should buy it immediately for £1000, we thought he was mad... well, we restored it at Whitby Morrison Ice Cream specialists in Crewe and have never looked back..." Looking forward to seeing you at the Pageant! :)
