The fantastic snow-creatures of Hornsey Park

Residents in Hornsey Park got themselves into a friendly artistic competition when the snow fell last weekend.

Chris Rose, who lives in Park Ridings wanted to create something for his front garden, but a snowman just did not seem special enough, so he built an impressive snow-cat instead.

Students living across the street decided not to be outdone and sculpted a Pikachu character. Other people along the street also started on their own creations. There was plenty of local interest as passers-by stopped and took pictures.

Sadly vandals later destroyed the sculptures before they could melt in the way nature intended. Despite their sad demise the uplifting spirit of the cheerful snow creatures lives on.

Fortunately the fantastic results can still be seen in the slideshow below. We are looking forward to the next snow sculpture contest!
