The kiosk in Pollensa is to be dismantled.

Fourteen months after the Gelats Valls ice-cream kiosk in Puerto Pollensa was dismantled and removed, another one is about to disappear. This is the Valls kiosk by the Plaça Major in Pollensa town.

Mayor Miquel Àngel March says that there was a meeting with representatives of Valls last week. At this meeting, it was confirmed that the Valls family had agreed to dismantle the Pollensa kiosk. It was also explained that the company is in the process of being dissolved. However, part of the family wants to continue having a kiosk by the square. It has therefore requested town hall permission for this.

The kiosk in Pollensa has been there without there ever having been a public tender, which was also the case in Puerto Pollensa. The dismantling of the kiosk in Puerto Pollensa was preceded by ten months of a campaign to prevent its disappearance. When it was first confirmed, in April 2016, that the kiosk would be going, there was something of a public outcry. The kiosk had occupied a space on the seafront for decades.

As a frequent visitor over 38 years to Puerto Pollensa it appears that the Council are victimising the Valls Ice cream kiosks. First Puerto Pollensa now Pollensa town. Other than give pleasure to the tourists & locals alike of a cooling delicious ice cream one does wonder why the Council wishes to deprive us of an ice cream?

What is it with this Mayor! Valls kiosk in Puerto Pollensa was iconic - apart from the ice cream being delicious. Ringing the bell when you left a tip for the girls who were all so nice. Their cafe is just not the same. Then the bus service along the seafront was destroyed making it difficult for tourists to travel from one end to the other. And now the last piece de resistance - they have moved the taxis to way back of beyond - just the handy place you would expect to find a taxi - nowhere near the centre. This ruling body is ruining a lovely resort.
