Dairy delights as Liverpool children ‘meet their milkmen’
Local schoolchildren had a taste of the countryside when milkmen brought their traditional milk float into the heart of Liverpool, Mortons Dairies visited LIPA Primary School in the city centre as part of our new initiative to educate local children about dairy products.
We arrived on an iconic milk float to teach the youngsters about milk, the cows it comes from and its health benefits. We also shared samples of dairy products with the children.
Our very own Julian Harrison, operations director of Mortons Dairies, said:
“We’re delighted that our milkmen are able to help educate children in our local community about milk and the products we produce with it. It’s great to be able to let them sample some products and sit aboard our traditional milk float. Our milkmen are out in the early hours and many children never get the chance to see a real milk float in action.”
Greg Parker, Head Teacher at LIPA Primary School, said:
“We aim to immerse children in enjoyable learning experiences, so we were thrilled when the milkmen from Mortons Diaries offered to visit with their milk float. The children were excited to find out more about where their milk comes from and loved being able to see the traditional float.”
