Meet the dedicated Solley's Team

Solley's is a family business which has been through the generations - but there is still a fantastic team of ice cream geeks behind the scenes.

Keith

Chief Taster

Loving all things ice cream, Keith relishes his role as chief taster. His favourite flavour is whichever flavour is in the cone he is eating. Enjoying running and all things petrol when not at the Dairy, Keith also likes to travel and discover the next new flavours preferably in a far flung sunny location.

Katie

Beans, Events & Parlour

Having been involved with Solley’s Ice Cream since its conception Katie has enjoyed watching the family business grow. She can often be seen driving through the country lanes in the vintage ice cream van on her way to another event. Favourite flavour? It’s got to be coffee.

Amber

A beautiful fox red Labrador, Amber is the Lady of the Manor and roams freely across the Farm. She has a real love for ice cream so toddlers and little people beware she has been known to steal a cheeky lick.

Shirley

Abacus in Chief

Shirley is our bookkeeper and does all things financial each Wednesday using her abacus and a quill pen she swears used to belong to Charles Dickens.

Claire

Just done it

Claire is our customer care specialist and is known in the office as “just done it”. Highly efficient and super quick she is the keeper of the phone and the taker of orders extraordinaire, with a fun loving approach to life and an ability to get the job done. She has a hankering for us to make Gin and Tonic ice cream.

Jordie

Head of Napolis

Jordan is our new business generator and is an expert in all things ice cream. From cone types through to point of sale, Jordan is our man on the road and often the first point of contact to people getting to know Solley’s. He loves giving away free stuff and his favourite flavour of ice cream is our new Black Forest Gateau.

Gavin

The Ambassador

Gavin is our Number 1 driver, dashing from pillar to post whatever the weather, he is our eyes and ears on the ground and knows nearly all of our customers. A cheeky chappy with a twinkle in his eye he is a huge asset to our business and one of our longest serving employees.

Hip Hop John

Where would we be without him? Now in his third season with Solley’s Ice Cream, with his Yorkie Bar by his side and the road ahead, Hip Hop John will arrive with your delivery in Zebedee, our trusty delivery van. Sometimes with a cheery smile!!

Andy

Making Magic

Andy is one of two magicians who make the ice cream, tame the temperamental Italian machinery and turn the finest of raw ingredients into over 24 flavours of ice cream and sorbets. His favourite ice cream is a closely guarded secret so that he shows no bias. Andy is also super fit and runs or cycles to or from work because he can!

Tim

Making Magic

Tim is our other resident magician making our fabulous ice cream, fixing and tweaking, label guru and boss of boxes and all things packaging. Always with a cheery outlook on life, Tim is a busy Grandpa when he isn’t at work, and unlike Andy, Tim drives everywhere – because he can!

Gone Fishing John

Gone Fishing John is joining us for a second season because he enjoyed his time with us so much last year! Gone Fishing John is always ready to step in at the last minute if we get really busy. Once he’s loaded up Ermintrude, the newest van of our fleet, he’ll be with you in no time – unless he’s gone fishing!!
