Video: Birkhill residents dig deep to clear snow from school

Around 40 volunteers helped clear snow from the car park at Birkhill Primary School on Sunday.

Angus schools are scheduled to re-open on Monday, headteacher Natasha Hutchison thanked all those who helped clear the snow away.

She said: “The kids have loved being at home and have had lots of adventures but we’re all desperate to go back to school.”

Parents, pupils and other Birkhill residents all pitched in to help.

Residents of Birkhill and the adjoining village of Muirhead have used the snow as an excuse to indugle in some friendly rivalry.

A snowball match between the two villages was won by Birkhill while Muirhead came out tops in a competition to design the best snowman.
