Late snow in the sunshine for April 2017

After a warm turn of spring weather and many new lambs happy in the fields it was the last days of April that surprised many as snow fell in Chelmorton Main Street. Arriving at mid day April 25th, flakes in the air which remained in short flurries most of the afternoon between sunshine. A white frost morning as rich green grass was driving up from the fields led to an afternoon of snow and sunshine. Nothing settled but there was no doubt snow flakes were floating about the village in a sharp cool wind. Weather set to turn back warm and villages teaming up for a trip to Earl Sterndale for the joint benefice service Sunday April 30th.
