LOTS of people, young and old, donned wellies and hit the streets on Sunday to enjoy the freshly fallen snow.

Many grabbed their sledges and took to the hills while others got busy creating snowmen.

But some took the task more seriously than others.

Builder pals Paul Toland and Jason Lynch, who live together in Horsecroft Road, Boxmoor, spent seven hours creating an igloo on Blackbirds Moor in Boxmoor (pictured below).

The pair, who say not a drop of alcohol had passed their lips that night because they have given up booze for two months following the New Year festivities, set to work at 11.30pm on Saturday and worked through until 6.30am the following day.

“We had a fit of madness,” said Jason, 27. “We haven’t grown up yet.”

They also created an igloo man, blue whale and polar bear on Blackbirds Moor, much to the delight of passing children.

“The children and their parents loved it, they were very impressed,” said Jason.

The friends, who run their own construction firms, were not the only ones to get creative in the snow over the weekend.

Doctor Who fan Corey Holohan, six, created a dalek at his home on Highfield, Hemel Hempstead, while the Holden-White family made a snow queen complete with crown and jewels and 12-year-old Daniel Cutmore created a snow bar outside Martins Pond in Potten End.
