How Our Services are are Affected

MARKETS - After the Prime Minister's announcement in the 23 March we have been instructed to close the Shambles indoor Market until further notice. The Thursday Market will continue to take place for now providing essential fresh fruit and veg.

HILLWORTH PARK & CEMETERY - We have no plans to close Hillworth Park or the Devizes Cemetery as we recognise that these are beautiful green spaces, which can be used by the community for exercise.

HILLWORTH PARK CAFE-The Cafe is now open for take away drinks, snacks and ice creams.Opening times: Monday-Friday 11am - 3pm Saturday and Sunday 10am - 4pm. Card payments only.

HILLWORTH PARK - TENNIS COURTS-  The tennis courts are now open.

WEST CENTRAL CAR PARK SUPERLOOS- The superloos are now open.

We do have outdoor gym equipment in the park, which we will struggle to take out of use. Please be aware that this must not be used as we do not sanitise it.


 The Government are advising that people are allowed to:

*Spend time outdoors, for example sitting and enjoying the fresh air, picnicking or sunbathing.

*Meet one other person from a different household - following social distancing guidelines.

*Exercise outdoors as often as you wish - following social distancing guidelines.

*Use outdoor sports courts or facilities such as a tennis or basketball court or golf course- with members of your own household or one other person while staying 2 metres apart.

YOU MUST OBSERVE THE RULES OF SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL TIMES IN THE PARK & CEMETERY

Our Parks and Open Spaces Team will continue at the moment to carry out litter collections, grass cutting and other such services. These are important and still deemed as essential services that we hope will ensure the town is a clean and pleasant place to live. Please be assured that they are working within Government guidelines of social distancing and would ask that you do not approach them when they are out and about.
