On Sunday, Basingstoke woke up to a rare snowfall.

Families headed out across the borough to enjoy their permitted exercise - with sledging, snowball fights and snowmen a must!

We put out a call for snow day pictures - and our readers didn't disappoint.

We were inundated with submissions - and have compiled as many of them as possible into this bumper online gallery.

We will also be publishing some of the best ones in an eight-page snow day special in this week's paper (out tomorrow, January 27).

So don't forget to pick up your copy!
