More than fifty years of operation coming to an end. | Gelats Valls

The Gelats Valls ice-cream kiosk in Puerto Pollensa will close today. At four this afternoon, there will be free ice-cream, a gesture to thank those who have supported the family business in its attempts to stave off eviction and so bring to an end more than fifty years of operation at the kiosk.

The closure was inevitable once mayor Miquel Angel March confirmed the eviction order last month. There had been a six-month delay in effecting the order, which led to a charge of malfeasance against March and former mayor Tomeu Cifre being presented to a court in Inca.

The town hall's eviction order was the result of a previous charge that it had been showing favour to Gelats Valls without there being a public tender for the site.
