Town council sheds light on Christmas display

At their meeting on Tuesday members of Llangollen Town Council discussed the hot issue of the town’s Christmas lights.

Last year’s display prompted a number of criticisms and, as a result, a number of people unhappy with the lights recently held discussions with town clerk Gareth Thomas.
Mr Thomas told councillors that it had been something of “a heated debate” with one of the criticisms being that Llangollen’s lights weren’t as good as those in neighbouring Chirk.

At the end of the meeting, two of the people who had been complaining had agreed to look at the possibility of doing their own fundraising for a better display next year, Mr Thomas said.
He suggested that the existing set of lights, which were currently on lease from a private company, could be bought by the council to form the basis of a better display next year paid for by the fundraising.

Councillors agreed to this as the best course of action.
