It's been pretty cold over the last couple of days as the " Beast from the East" blew in so we hope everyone is keeping warm at home. But for those who braved the snow and cold winds there have been some photo opportunities around Henbury. David Walker spotted this fieldfare taking refuge in his garden to feed on an apple and he found snowdrifts in Andertons Lane the like of which we haven't seen for quite a few years. Roger Cousin nearly lost his little dog Beanz in a cloud of blown snow on the Whirley to Henbury footpath too!
If you have any "Beast from the East" photos you'd like us to post do please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org We'd love to put together a gallery of this year's winter in the village.
