A group from the Arcare Parkinson Community enjoyed touring the historic Kingston Butter Factory, a landmark in the Kingston area.
Dairying was a major industry in Kingston at the turn of the century and the original factory was built in 1907 out of timber.
Dairy company Peters took over the factory in 1958 and production finally ceased 1983.
The factory has since been converted into a community centre and museum.
The Parkinson Community were fascinated to find out the rich history behind the factory and indulged in a beautiful morning tea together.
The ladies in the Parkinson Community are passionate about making a difference in the lives of others and have recently created cuddle bears and hearts for orphan children in Kenya.
The handcrafted items, in every colour and design you can think of, are created to help comfort the children.
The ladies are proud of their efforts and hope that they will make the children smile.
