Snowfall in Reach - February 2012

Saturday, 4th February 2012


The snow was well predicted with an "amber alert" across many parts of England. It started falling early evening and carried on until the early hours. As ever, in Reach, both grown-ups and children looked forward to the beauty of newly fallen snow and enjoyed themselves immensely.

The igloos (piccies 36 and 37) are superb.
