But this morning motorists reported that the ice house had been destroyed.
Eric told stamfordpeople: "We are really disappointed and upset about it.

"My brother put a note on the igloo last night asking people not to damage it because it had taken us a long time to build and lots of people were enjoying it.
"That might have been what prompted the vandalism.
"I went out this morning to see if I could patch it up - but it's not going to happen.
"But wait until it snows next - we're going to build a whole village!"
Residents and motorists are also disappointed that the igloo has been vandalised.
One motorist told stamfordpeople: "It's a real shame.
"It looks like someone has jumped up and down on the roof and it's collapsed."
While Sheena McCulloch, from Stamford, said: "The top's been smashed - it's cracked like a half-eaten Creme Egg!"
The igloo caused quite a stir in the town with the builders spotting at least 150 people taking photos.
