CHARD NEWS: Snow falls as police close A30 through the centre of Chard

THE expected snow arrived in Chard and surrounding area on Thursday (March 1, 2018) and caused the traditional problems as the town came to a standstill.

The A30 through the centre of town was closed by police because of the treacherous conditions, while children were sent home from school early because of the weather.

Some schools will not be opening on Friday (March 2, 2018) because of the snow.

Local photographer Keith Rendell was out and about on Thursday afternoon to get some pictures of Chard under now.

Anyone else want to see their snow photos appear on Chard Press – please email us at chardpress@gmail.com with details to go with the photos.

The message from the emergency services is that people should only travel if necessary.
