Hundreds of local people took advantage of the snow to have fun at ‘Joey the Swan’ in Wistaston. Local school and college closures meant that the slopes were swelled with people riding sledges of all shapes and sizes including half a canoe, along with the occasional snowboarder. The bottom section doubled as the nursery slope, whilst the top section was the preserve of the more confident tobogganist. The cold weather is forecast to extend into next week, so the fun should last for a little longer.
