THE renovation of a fifteenth century courthouse, a plan to enhance green spaces by tree planting and work to improve cycling routes are all set to be discussed during an exhibition in Ruthin.

Ruthin Town Council will host another Ruthin Future Week from Monday, April 22 to Sunday, April 28 with the aim to update residents on the progress of projects that received the most public support during last year's Ruthin Future events.

The exhibition will also gather ideas and feedback to inform the delivery of further important projects for the town.

Cllr Gavin Harris, deputy mayor of Ruthin, said: "The focus of the week will be The Old Courthouse, the former NatWest Bank which is now owned by Ruthin Town Council. It formed a key component of the ‘Heart of the Town’ aspect of Ruthin Future and the town council is excited to explain the progress of the project further, which has recently been awarded a substantial grant from The National Lottery Community Fund.

"Other projects that have and are being delivered in partnership with Denbighshire County Council include improved safer routes for pedestrians and cyclists, with enhanced landscaping supported by the town council, as well as ideas for more events at Ruthin Town Hall in partnership with Gwyl Rhuthun festival committee."

Events tipped to be highlights of the week are the Ruthin Forum - Business & Groups evening at 6pm on the Wednesday, attended by guest speaker Mark Allen from Welsh Cycling who will discuss an exciting national event set to take place in Ruthin during the summer, as well as a fundraising dinner in aid of The Old Courthouse at manorhaus on the Friday.

The weekend will see The Old Courthouse hold two open days from 10am until 4pm. This will include some historical and project talks.

The week will conclude on the Sunday with the return of the popular Ruthin Mini-Photomarathon. Anyone with a smartphone or camera is encouraged to take six photos of Ruthin based on six themes within the space of four hours. The event is free to participate and the best collection of photographs in under 15 and adult categories will win a digital instacamera.
