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.
Please also note that the Cafe, the tennis courts, Under 5 play area and toilets are all now closed in Hillworth Park.
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 still allowed to go outside for exercise once a day - including walking, running or cycling. However, this can only be done on your own, or with the people you live with.
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.
