A snow Dalek... and Usain Bolt! All in line to win Post's Best Snowman competition
A SNOW Dalek, a snow bear and a snowman sporting Usain Bolt's famous pose are among the latest creative offerings in the Post's competition.
Hayley Green designed two animals as well as a more traditional snowman in her back garden – much to the delight of two-year-old daughter Brooklyn.
"My partner started making a snowman and we decided it looked more like a bear," said Hayley, of Hucknall Lane, Bulwell.
"We added some claws and teeth. We also made a dog, too. And, of course, we had a normal snowman.

Meanwhile, Richard and Helen Jenkings took inspiration from Doctor Who to build their snow Dalek.
The couple, of Cherry Tree Close, Radcliffe-on-Trent, used garden lights and nearly 30 snowballs to create the sculpture.
More traditional snowmen appeared elsewhere in Notts.
Oli Reynolds, two, helped mum Penny Reynolds build his first snowman in their back garden in Long Eaton.
The pair used stones for the snowman's buttons and eyes, a leaf for his nose and twigs for his arms. They also built a slightly bigger snowman of the same design.
Penny, 37, said: "Oli absolutely loved it. He's been out in the garden with them since we built them. It's nice that they lasted so long."
Khyaal Gautam, 19 months, of Bramley Court, Gamston, also enjoyed helping to build a traditional snowman.
The creation had tomatoes for eyes and a carrot for its nose, as well as a stick for its mouth and stones for buttons.
Elizabeth Macey, 12, and Ashley Macey, 7, both of Prestwood Drive, Aspley, also used a carrot for their snowman, which they kept warm with a hat – also made of snow.
Danny Harris and Cat Holding, both 26 and from Woodthorpe, had fun building a snowman sporting Usain Bolt's famous pose, as well as a snowdog, in Woodthorpe Park on Saturday.
