THERE is one thing about the snowman children from Sidmouth Pre-School built - he won't melt.

With virtually no snow settling in the town, there was no chance of the youngsters building a real snowman, so they built one out of cardboard boxes.

About 15 little ones based at the pre-school at All Saints Infants, had great fun making Mr Snowman, sticking and gluing him together.

"Most of them had seen snow on the tops of hills and on TV but we haven't had any in the town where most of them live," said manager Lynne Rattue.
