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 has forced us to cancel all planned events for the foreseeable future. In particular this means that we cannot now run the first Repair Cafe session on May 2nd as planned. We will however reschedule this once the restrictions on movement are lifted.

Meanwhile this crisis has shown the strength of the community in the Devizes area. Over 300 people have volunteered for the Devizes COVID19 Support group and are assisting 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. Many of these can be found in our Local Food Directory.
