Key changes
We're starting to make some big changes to the BBC Local website.

News round-up
Drowned child 'one in a million' - The family of a nine-year-old boy who drowned in the river Dee have described him as a "one-in-a-million" son.
Wales' schools 'decades behind' - A Denbighshire council leader tells BBC Wales that, in terms of maintenance, school buildings in Wales lag decades behind those in England.

Wrexham FC
Wrexham FC blames relegation from the Football League for heavy financial losses in their latest released accounts. And the fans say.

Festival fun
There are two big events being held in Wrexham this weekend, including three days of live music and a family-friendly festival in the town centre.

Town Talk
More supermarkets - Edward: "I see the development application for Sainsbury's in Ruabon has been defeated by 9 - 8 votes at the planning meeting last night. I for one feel it is a shame that job opportunities are being lost in a village that has little economic stability..."
What now for Denbigh Hospital? - Jane: "Look what went on at the Tower of London over its history but nobody suggested pulling it down, it's kept alive and cared for and makes a fortune because of its past. It's educational."
Ruthin Craft Centre - Ruth: "Ruthin Craft Centre is thrilled to have been shortlisted for The Art Fund Prize for museums and galleries 2009. If you think we should win do please vote for us..."
Gronant holiday park memories - Andrea: "We loved to go there on a Friday night and watch The Golden Girls on the telly and drink Oxo!"
