Water Shortage: Mold first town to receive Bath & Shower Ban


A prolonged period of hot weather has left the council with no option but to introduce immediate water restrictions, with Mold receiving the UK’s first Bath & Shower Ban.

The ban will restrict anyone in the town from using their bath or showers until further notice, no matter how sweaty. And the alternative of filling up a watering can, stripping naked and asking a friend to shower you in the garden is also not an option.

A council spokesman said: “We need to preserve our dwindling water supplies, we’ve only got a few pints left. Mold drew the short straw I’m afraid.

“Although to be fair, I was in Mold on market day over the weekend and I don’t think the ban will make a huge difference”.
