A family-run ice cream shop Hudson’s Desserts has opened in Monton.

The shop on Monton Road has injected a new lease of life into the surrounding area and promises to satisfy residents’ sweet tooth.

The menu contains items such as ice cream as well as waffles and has so far been rated highly by its visitors.

The shop is co-owned by mother and daughter Paige and Wendy Crowther and is named after Paige’s son Hudson (pictured above).

Paige explained how it came to be.

She said: “After I lost my son in August 2022, I was at a loss so my mum decided it was time to switch up our lives and do something we both love.

“So we set our sights on opening an ice cream shop more seriously towards the end of 2023 and it all kind of came together.”

Paige said: “We love working as a family and keeping that going. Currently in the shop it’s me, my mum, my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. It keeps the shop feeling like a community and the values that we love.”
