MP backs local ice cream man

Chingford MP Iain Duncan Smith met with Michael Bell and his supporters on Friday 4th March to discuss the future of his ice cream business after Waltham Forest council decided to put his contract out to tender.

Iain Duncan Smith agreed to write to the council in support of renewing Mr Bell’s contract.

He said: “The council’s decision on this will impact greatly on the livelihood of both Mr Bell’s business and the local community, who have enjoyed ice cream in the park for the last 20 years.

“I don’t know why the council are doing this and am urging them to renew Mr Bell’s rolling contract in time for the summer season.”
