Worcestershire Snow Watch Sat 3rd – Sun 4th March

Luckily I didn’t have work today so we could enjoy the snow (well for about 5 minutes until the girls got too cold).

We are planning some cosy days in this weekend with some films and hot chocolate. For those of you who need to venture out here are this weekend’s snow updates.

We will be running the following services from Redditch/Kidderminster. Please allow for some delays as although the snow is clearing some roads have developed black ice.
