These days we don’t see much snow, if any, but in the 1960s it came frequently and sometimes deep. In this month’s photo we see heavy snow being cleared from outside Berrycroft stores into a lorry! They had to clear the yard as well as the front of the shop so just piling up was not an option. The lorry was filled with snow and driven out to the fen to be dumped. It must have been hard work with a shovel!
