The first serious snowfalls of the winter hit Darwen this afternoon. Drove down to the Library Theatre this evening for the Mayor’s Command Performance, but because of the bad weather it was posponed. On the way back up Bolton Rd cars were sliding. This weather brings out the best and worst of people. Some car drivers were impatient and dangerously overtaking or overtaking on the inside. It was good to see a small group of youngsters who were out in the snow helping to push slipping cars to get them up the hill. Well done lads !
