Snow falls in Selwyn

by Anonymous Author

Excited children got a treat these school holidays as snow fell in Selwyn.

The youngsters, and some not so young, revelled in the white stuff with snowmen (and women) popping up all over the district last week.

The Record asked its readers to send in some photographs of the snow and we were overwhelmed with the response.

Unfortunately we are not able to print all the images we were sent so here are a few of the great photos we received.

More photos will be put up on our Facebook page,
