Snow business

Children made the most of the snowfall during their unscheduled time away from school on Thursday, on the Balclutha Golf Club hills. Enthusiastic youngsters (from left) Meg Smith (10), Liam Huddleston (11), Ryan Hurring (11), Morgan Huddleston (14), Ruby Smith (14), and Eva Smith (10), enjoyed the dumpings of snow the town received last week with some old-fashioned sledding using boogie boards and snowboards. The mixture of snow, rain and hail was unable to dampen the spirits as they took advantage of the first decent fall for several years. REPORT & PHOTO: EVELYN THORN
