It's a special day for all of Buckley today as people with any connection with the town will no doubt know. That's because today marks the 150th anniversary parade known as the Buckley Jubilee. It was originally started as a procession of chapel and then church groups and now includes anyone of any faith - plus family and friends who turn out to soak up the atmosphere.

There has been no shortage of people coming forward to share their Jubilee stores, including Ex Pat Alison who usually makes the trip home from Singapore.

Meanwhile, Buckley resident Doris, 89, has never missed a parade - and today is unlikely to be any different, according to her daughter, also called Alison, who wonders if her mother will be the oldest person to walk the route in the parade following today's special service on Buckley Common at 3pm.
