From sledging to snowball fights, this week’s arctic blast has given many Norfolk residents the chance to try all manner of fun and frosty activities.

But this trio at the North Walsham Garden Centre took inspiration from the Winter Olympics to sample something completely different - curling.

Inspired by the sport sometimes known as ‘Chess On Ice’, two ‘players’ use brooms to sweep a path for a container of liquid - used in the place of the more traditional stone - into a target area.

And it looks like they have already mastered the rudiments, as we see the container ending its slide quite close to the red dot marking the target.
