Announcing two new Devizes Community Area Health & Well Being events in 2020

I’m pleased to announce that two new Devizes Community Area (DCA) Health & Well Being (HWB) events will take place in the Devizes Market Place and Shambles this year.


1 Be Active 2020

Kick start your active summer

The first event – Be Active 2020 – will take place on Friday 29th May, and will give organisations the opportunity to show adults in the DCA what activities they provide to help keep us healthy and active. Two areas will be made available, one in the Devizes Market Place and the other in The Shambles, to do that:

  • The Exhibition Hall: Exhibitors will be allocated FREE space in The Shambles to display their promotional materials, and to talk to visitors about what activities and services they provide. Where appropriate this will include offers of discounted taster sessions to help kickstart the visitor’s active summer.
  • The Demonstration Arena: Demonstrators will be allocated a FREE space and time slot in the Market Place to demonstrate the kind of activity sessions they offer. These might include a range of activities from exercise and dance classes, to holistic therapy sessions.

2 Be Social 2020

Kick start your social winter

The second event – Be Social 2020 – will take place on Friday 23rd October, and will give organisations such as social care groups and clubs the opportunity to show adults what services they provide. These could range from housing and medical services on the one hand, to hobby and social gatherings on the other. Again, a FREE space will be made available in the Devizes Market Place and Shambles for Demonstrators and Exhibitors to do that.

Here’s looking forward to a sunny summer!
