18 February 2021


The Parks Trust are seeking tenders from an ice cream concession to sell products from a static ice-cream van(s) across various parkland locations within Milton Keynes. The trader will be required to enter into a two-year agreement to sell ice cream, non-alcoholic cold beverages and other foods and snacks as may be agreed with the Parks Trust and must be prepared to trade every Saturday and Sunday during the period 1st April - 30th September each year and every weekday of the same period during School Holidays.

The opportunities to trade are for some of our well-loved and most visited parks; Willen Lake North, Campbell Park and Caldecotte Lake North. We would expect any successful trader to help the environment by using biodegradable and sustainable products and help welcome our park visitors by keeping the areas clean and tidy. We will also look favourably on a concession operator using electric or hybrid vehicles.

We are looking for the successful tender to trade for 24 months from 1 April 2021.

Interested parties should read and complete the request for tender documents and apply by email to j.dawes@theparkstrust.com by 12pm on Friday 19th March 2021.
