THE Herald appealed for readers’ snowy pics after a blanket of snow covered Farnham and the surrounding area last week - and was overwhelmed by the response!

Hundreds of photographs of beautiful snow-swept scenes and families and pets out enjoying the white stuff have flooded in to the Herald’s email account over the past seven days.

Many have been featured in this week’s Herald - and such has been the response, we are hoping to publish many more in next week’s edition as well as putting together a montage of many of your best pics - which can be viewed at the bottom of this page.

Surrey and Hampshire were among some of the worst hit areas in the county as the snow arrived on Thursday and Friday last week, resulting in chaos on the roads and a number of school closures.

The Met Office observation station at RAF Odiham recorded a low of -8.3C on Sunday, marking it the coldest night of the winter so far.

And Surrey’s road policing unit took to Twitter on Friday evening urging motorists to “take it slow and steady” after officers had been “pulling vehicles out of ditches, towing those who have got stuck, driving, pushing and pulling cars up and down icy slopes”.

But among the chaos there was lots of fun as youngsters made the most of the snow day - and a day off school - by sledging in Farnham Park, building snowmen and having snowball fights!

See this week’s Herald for lots more snowy pictures.
