If you live in a more rural area, what mobile businesses do you have?

So obviously there's the mobile library, youth bus, the chip van (Starchip Enterprise is one locally) and so on, but recently I've seen a mobile barbers van which parks up in different villages and theres a soft play double decker which has started.
Anything else around? I love the idea that people are taking themselves to the villages and getting round the problems with transport

Did all here, I wish we did have some though! A mobile library used to come but doesn't anymore, we have a phone box library instead now.

Pizza oven once a week

The pizza oven is impressive - how long does it take to start working? Theres one in a morris minor that you see at events locally, but it takes forever to serve a queue

We have a pizza can (wood fired oven in the back of a long wheelbase transit type van) and a fish n chip van (the Cornish Codfather!), but our village is quite well served with a shop, pub, deli, tapas restaurant etc. I do know there are other mobile services e.g. Hairdresser and the usual but no exotic niches, afaik. I'll take a look on the notice board and let you know of any!

We have a dessert van, which visits the surrounding villages/small towns grin

Love the idea of mobile soft play surely anythings better than the warehouse spaces of hell

Hang on a minute, a pizza van hmm Are we talking homeshires, artisan, 2nd home, perfect roads and chocolate box rural here?

Because in the dirty North, couple of farms and the faint possibility of a half decent pub rural we get. Erm nothing!

Ok you can get your paper delivered and possibly some milk. There is a fish man and a Kleeneeze person than comes once a year for some Christmas brass but that's it!

Pizza VW van pah <<wanders off muttering>>
