Not to be outdone by the neighbours down the road this Christmas, Buckley Town Council have invested in fifteen feet of sparkly silver tinsel, which they claim will trump anything Mold has in its armoury.
The rivalry, which dates back over a decade, sees both towns battle it out for bragging rights over who has the most impressive festive display.
Buckley councillor Maureen Price said: “Last year Mold stole the show by hiring Bruce Jones from Coronation Street to switch on their lights, while Buckley residents had to make do with a guy who was an extra in one episode of Casualty in 1997. He was all we could afford”.
“We’re not letting that shame fall upon our town again, so we dug deep and used the last of our funds to buy shit loads of tinsel from Homebase.
“It means we can’t afford to make the town centre more wheelchair friendly now, but it’ll be worth it when we see the look on their stupid little faces. Historic market town my arse”.
