Love Local Calne – Day 2

By Anita Jaynes on 4 October, 2020

It’s day two of our Love Local Calne campaign and today we’re putting the spotlight on artisan ice cream and sorbet business, Fluffy Puffin.

Fluffy Puffin specialise in ice creams and sorbets for weddings and events. The business is owned and run by experienced chef, Chris Wooldridge who is absolutely passionate about ice cream and delivers his foodie art with flair and pizzazz.

2020 has been a tough year for the business with most weddings and events cancelled, but during lockdown the business diversified and started offering a home delivery service of ice creams and puddings which has gone down well and has been a real life line to keep Fluffy Puffin trading. 

This summer despite the events season being practically cancelled due to Covid, Fluffy Puffin scooped two prestigious national awards. It took home the ‘Special Touch’ category award at the national Wedding Business Awards 2020 and an Innovation & Excellence Award at the Corporate LiveWire Awards. 

The Business Exchange is a Fluffy Puffin fan and has booked Chris and the team for the last three years to provide the interval treat at the annual Techies Awards. This year Chris is pulling out the stops to continue to work with us. Attendees of our virtual Techies Awards will receive Fluffy Puffin ice cream to enjoy at home on awards night. We can’t wait!
