Share this article

Kenilworth was among the many places across the country to be covered with several inches of snow on Sunday (December 10), and residents made the most of it.

Plenty of snowmen popped up around the town, and Abbey Fields was the place for many families to try out their sledging skills.

Some of Kenilworth's creations even made it to national news - a snowman, polar bear and dog were featured on BBC Breakfast's weather forecast at 6.30am today (Monday December 11).

The weather has also forced several of Kenilworth's schools to close today.
