Tidy Town Competition.
Ruan Village and its environs fared well this year in the Tidy Town's Competition,  earning 264 points, up three on last year's results, due to the hard work and dedication of the community, helped in no small way by the work of the Rural Resource Organisation.   The Spring Clean which had been organised earlier in the year led to a large amount of litter being removed from the areas surrounding the village.  
The judges commented favourably on the refurbishment of Ruan Church, the high standard of landscaping in the school grounds and in the village.   They concluded that the village continues to progress in the competition and is a visually enhanced area, and that the landscaping carried out by the community has led to a charming sense of place.
