We Do Scones.

 

Hello!  We are ‘Here Today, Scone Tomorrow’. Thank you for visiting.

We hand make and bake delicious, extra special scones made using our secret recipe aboard our wonderful mobile bakery van, ‘Alison’. 

Alison was brought over from France, and like Owner Pip, was born in the 1980s. But unlike Pip she maintains her 1940s character. Alison has been lovingly restored and will soon be the mobile home for our brand new and unique bakery.

About Pip

Pip was born in Reading, raised in Birmingham and now lives with her husband Monty, several chickens, and a cat called Dot in Bristol. She is the baker of all our scones and each one is mixed and hand cut by her as well as all of our home baked treats.

 "I believe in treating yourself and eating food that perhaps isn’t the healthist, but is always GOOD food. Organic food is becoming more of a part of our lives, and supporting small local businesses is an important thing to hold onto. Our scones and products are always made using organic ingredients wherever possible and if not, then ones fairly-traded and or made locally. All our food and drink is vegetarian as standard. Our packaging is either compostable or recycled. I hope you see the passion I have for baking and I don’t know if its jam or cream first!"

The Citroën H VanType HH-Type or HY is a panel van (light truck) produced by the French car maker Citroën between 1947 and 1981.[1] It was developed as a simple front wheel driven van after World War II. A total of 473,289 were produced in 34 years in factories in France and Belgium.

Like the 1934 Citroën Traction Avant, the H had a unitary body with no separate frame, four-wheel independent suspension, and front-wheel drive. For a commercial van, this combination provided unique benefits - a flat floor very close to the ground, and 6 ft (180 cm) standing height, with a side loading door.

The distinctive corrugated body work used throughout the period of production was inspired by German Junkers (Aircraft) starting from the First World War until the 1930s, the three engined Junkers Ju 52 being the last to use this construction. Henry Ford also adopted this construction for the Ford Tri-Motor passenger aircraft. The ribs added strength without adding weight, and required only simple, low cost press tools. The flat body panels were braced on the inside by 'top hat' box sections, at right angles to the ribs. The welded floor was strong enough to support a horse.
