Snow-lovers in Ipswich took full advantage of today's weather by getting outside to enjoy the white cold stuff despite plummeting temperatures.

Some headed for their nearest park for a spot of sledging and snowball fights, while others made snowmen in the garden as the snow fell during the morning.

Many people sent stunning photos from around the town to the Star, as well as pictures of their children and pets having fun.

The snow arrived in Ipswich around 9.30am and children and their parents soon made their way to Christchurch Park for some sledging action.

The Ipswich park tweeted: “The best sledging in the area! And how good of the snow to arrive on a Sunday morning.”

The view by the Waterfront made for some beautiful pictures, and the brave souls who wandered into the town centre for some shopping were treated to a festive scene by the Christmas tree.

The town’s three-day Christmas market, which began on Friday, featuring stalls selling food, drink, decorations and presents still went ahead today from 10am-4pm despite the adverse weather.

Many children took to their gardens to build snowmen, with some creative twists on the traditional look.

Rudolph the snowdeer was made in one town garden, while Leo and Elle-Sophia Blanchard, from Rushmere St Andrew, made sure their snowman showed his true colours by draping him in an Ipswich Town scarf.

It was also a good day for nature photographers, with beautiful shots of birds and landscapes being captured and shared over social media.
