Snow brings out Good Samaritans and lots of good news

We want to hear if a Good Samaritan has helped you in the snow. Use the form below. In the meantime, here are some of the good news stories we've come across.

There's free food for people in Rhos, today [and which has received its fair share of snow over the last week].

For a planned conference at the Stiwt, involving personnel from North Wales Police, has been cancelled and rather than let delegates' food go to waste, staff have been delivering it door to door to people in the Wrexham village.

Wrexham fans turned up at the Racecourse this morning with their shovels and brushes to clear snow from the pitch, or face having an eighth successive game postponed.

Mum of three Linda Murrary - "has been hailed a hero" - delivering meals on wheels to vulnerable people across Flintshire.

Rachael Connell, headteacher at Wrexham's Brynteg CP School, has been paying tribute to parents for helping to clear snow from the school to keep it open as much as possible during the cold snap.

And, despite the drama, there was a happy ending for Maria Hollis, 30, who gave birth on the M53 after getting stuck in traffic during last week's blizzard.

Husband Kevin managed to flag down a passing ambulance - but Maria gave birth to baby Maggie minutes before arriving at hospital.

There have been other stories of homeowners helping struggling motorists on the roads from Wrexham up to Coedpoeth and Minera. Some made sandwiches and prepared flasks while others helped to push vehicles out of trouble.

And then there's the story of kind taxi drivers in Wrexham, who gave food and a bed for the night to a stranded passenger - and then drove her home for free the next day.

Have you got any similar stories to share?
