Milkshake Day at Rectory House

Residents at Rectory House recently got together to celebrate National Milkshake Day and to make their own milk shakes with ice cream.

‘Tasty, sweet, smooth, frothy, and delicious’ were just a few of the words that residents described their concoctions. They thoroughly enjoyed the experience, mixing the ingredients, choosing their toppings and last but not least, drinking their own recipes!

They also commented that it brought back some great memories as some of them remembered when milkshakes first became popular in the UK and became a mainstay at ice cream shops, cafes and fast food restaurants throughout the country.

At Rectory House we strive to make our residents life as enjoyable as possible and it’s great to hold activity sessions such as these as they had so much fun making them. They all compared their recipes and it sparked off a lot of laughter and conversation.

They’re already asking when we can all do this again.
