SCHOOLS closed their doors and driving conditions were treacherous, but when the country's worst snow for 18 years arrived Fenland made the most of it and had snow much fun.
Winter conditions brought with it the chance to make snowmen, go sledging and of course take part in snowball fights.
Within hours of schools announcing they were closed last Thursday, a group of teenagers had already built a snowman standing six feet tall in West End Park, March.
Meanwhile, it provided the chance for families and friends to get creative in the show and build a variety of snow sculptures including an igloo, chairs, guitar statues and even a snowbike.
