The Council is proud of Devizes' history and actively seeks to maintain it's civic history, a collection of historical artefacts and ceremonial duties. Devizes is twinned with Mayenne in France and Waiblingen in Germany.
The Town Council seeks to promote a healthier lifestyle by ensuring that local people have accessible facilities for leisure and recreation. Whether for sport, play or just enjoying the ambience of a quiet place, we hope our facilities contribute to the quality of life of our community.
The 'Old Section' of Devizes cemetery is Victorian, opening in approximately 1878 (the first interment was 9 October 1878). The cemetery is situated on the north side of the Kennet and Avon canal which runs through the town.
Working in partnership with the people of the town, independent organisations, groups and individuals, the Town Council supports many community activities that help make our town a good place to live, work and visit.
