Snowmen galore popped up around the town and villages on Sunday as children, families – and some fun-loving adults – headed out to enjoy the wintery weather.
These pictures show folk making the most of the big chill – whether they were sledging, enjoying a snowball fight, or creating some rather impressive snow sculptures.
The picture on the right shows a beautiful sculpture of a pair of hands holding a dove. The display was put together by Mary and Pete Baxter, of Medforth Lane, in Boston.
The Standard’s Twitter feed was full of great pictures sent in by our readers, some of which are included here.
Despite the big chill, services in the town have remained unaffected.
