My Beautiful Day ~ A pictorial post about interesting people!
Meet our friend Ben from Winestones Ice Cream / www.winestonesicecream.co.uk
Breakfast: Which I don’t often eat as I’ve become a health freak in a drive to run two marathons for charity towards the end of the year however when I have a morning off I head to soak up some atmosphere and read in Bath or a spot of breakfast with friends at Hobbs House (of Fabulous Baker Brothers fame).
Where I work/my route to work: My family’s ice cream factory sits on the beautiful slopes of Rodborough Common, managed by the National Trust, its Europe’s largest, pre-historic limestone common land which overlooks the Stroud valleys, made famous by Laurie Lee’s superb ‘Cider with Rosie’. Views are endless and breath taking.
What I do at work: My family have been making award winning ice cream since my great grandfather founded Winstones in 1925. It’s so popular that our shop (and me) can’t even cope, please do pop and say hello but expect queues!
Coffee Break: If the weather’s gorgeous then I spend my coffee break, just like all of our customers, soaking up the views, amongst the cows and rare butterflies, with a good book.
How I relax: I wrote my first book ‘Make your own organic ice cream’ (which is available on Amazon/Waterstones) last year and am totally obsessed with reading, but if its a Friday or Saturday night, I’m usually out drinking cocktails.
