Opportunity to bid for Summer ice cream pitch

In line with our Mobile Vendors on Town Council Land Policy, the Town Council is seeking to license an ice cream van to operate on the Mundy playing fields during the Summer months only from 2023 to 2025 inclusive.

Permission to operate will be given to one vendor only and the licence will be granted for a period of 3 years. Bidders will be considered on the basis of how frequently/regularly they intend to be available on site, environmental factors and any appropriate governance (e.g. insurances, hygiene certification). An annual payment in excess of £1,100 will be required to be made to the Town Council in consideration of this licence.

The vendor will be required to take adequate steps to minimise the litter created from the products they sell.  This requirement, as well as the general conduct of the vendor, will be monitored by Council grounds staff.

If you wish to bid for the opportunity to hold the ice cream van licence for the Mundy Playing Fields for three years from the Summer of 2023 please email us on tenders@thornburytowncouncil.gov.uk by the close of play on Tuesday 13 June 2023 setting out/supplying the following:

  • An environmental statement
  • Any relevant food hygiene certificates
  • Public liability insurance certificate
  • The annual amount you are bidding to pay for the licence (must be in excess of £1,100 per annum)
