IT was an indication that something more like normality is slowly returning.
We are talking about the simple pleasure of getting an ice cream on a sunny day like today – when the temperature topped 23 degrees centigrade – at Ballymena’s People’s Park.
Syd Bruce of Syd’s Ices was in his ice-cream van at the park on Monday and he told ‘Ballymena Daily’: “It’s great to be back.”
The play sections at the park may still be closed as lockdown restrictions have yet to be totally lifted but thankfully Syd’s Ices was open.
There was a steady stream of families keen to get an ice cream as the temperatures remained high.
On a day like today – or indeed any day – we can think of at least 99 good reasons to get one of Syd’s ice creams.
