    What a winter that was! I was part of a group in their late teens and early twenties on a weekend houseparty during which we built an igloo that a dozen of us scrambled into. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    As a pupil at Roysses we were asked to clear the iced pavements between the school entrance and Bath Street. I doubt if they would allow that today.
