Warsop Vale Historical Society had a talk I believe last month by Mr Terry White who I believe owns the Vale Hotel at Warsop Vale, perhaps contact him, he may have the information you are looking for

Yes, I remember the ice cream vans being parked in the driveway of a house on the left hand side just before the Windmill.

At least one of the vehicles was battery powered.

Mrs White used to have to judge it right to get back up the hill before her batteries gave out.

My brother used to buy a sixpenny cornet from her long after she was charging everyone else a shilling. He always did look like he needed fattening up.
