What you got to be so happy about?

Moel Arthur & Moel Famau from the summit of Moel y Cloddiau

For me it's countryside like this, the Clwydian Range, and it's on the doorstep, but Clark needs some convincing. He's a new arrival and he's concerned that after reading a few negative comments about Buckley on this website it could mean he's made the wrong decision in relocating his family from Anglesey.

Clark, let me be among the first to welcome you to our area. You'll find the folk up there in Buckley are a friendly bunch and us lot down in Mold aren't bad either. Remember, we all shout loudest about the things that get us going and not the things that make us happy.

I reckon there is a lot more good than bad about Buckley and the surrounding area. Two things stand out for me; the people and the fantastic countryside.

I was in the Peak District for a family get together last weekend and as I looked out from the top of Thorpe Cloud people resembled marching ants as they stomped across the fields far below. Thankfully, we don't get that here - unless you walk around Snowdon.

When I was walking across Penycloddiau, Moel Arthur, Moel Famau and Moel Findeg [Celtic hillhorts] two weeks ago I saw only a couple of people all day.

What makes you happy to live here? Amanda reckons it's the lunches at Kristina's Continental Cafe in Wrexham - takes all sorts, I suppose.
