A heavy, though relatively brief snowfall blanketed Hoylake late on Friday. Snow fell heavily for a couple of hours on Friday evening, leaving roads, including Market Street difficult to drive on. Since then there has not been any further snowfall but freezing temperatures have left many side roads very icy.
The above photo was taken at around 9.30am on Saturday morning in Queens Park. A few families took the opportunity to have some fun sledging on the small hills in the park. There aren’t really many away-from-roads slopes in Hoylake and as a result Queens Park appears to the place to go for sledging in Hoylake and Meols.
