Welcome to Sustainable Devizes

Sustainable Devizes is a community group seeking ways to strengthen the local economy, reduce our environmental impact, and build resilience for a future beyond cheap energy and a changing climate. We are part of the Transition Network “A movement of communities coming together to re-imagine and rebuild our world”.

For more details of our aims and activities see the About page.

COVID-19 Update

The COVID-19 lockdown in the UK forced us to cancel most of our planned events. However we are gradually adapting and are now finding ways to run some events. In particular we have started the Repair Cafe sessions on a limitied basis, by using space in The Shambles and by concentrating on just a couple of types of repair in each session. We also made a start on our Incredible Edible campaign with vegetable planting by Carpetright and in front of the car wash.

This crisis has shown the strength of the community in the Devizes area. Over 300 people volunteered for the Devizes COVID19 Support group and assisted those isolated at home by collecting prescriptions and shopping for them.  Many local businesses have also stepped up to the mark by offering a delivery service. We have tried to include these in our Local Food Directory where appropriate.
