Devizes is the home of the Wadworth Brewery, and the Rotary Club of Devizes.
The Rotary club of Devizes is a dedicated team of men and women looking to contribute to community projects based locally, nationally and internationally.
The club supports the local Health and Well Being Showcase, which earlier this year, was held on the Big Green in Devizes. The event is held every year and is part of the Devizes Street Festival’s Community & Family day where families are also able to watch a variety of Street Festival acts in the Market Place.
As well as learning about the Health and Well Being activities and services that are available in and around Devizes, visitors were able to have a go at fun stuff such as giant bubble making, bean bag throwing, tower building and bell ringing!
Devizes Rotary also provided a selection of delicious hot and cold refreshments, with all profits donated to local good causes.
The Big Green was also the location for games like Tin Can Alley, Golf Putting and Football Shooting Practice.
Last year, the Club organised the inaugural Devizes Trolley Olympics featuring the Olympic Push, Pull, Dribble & Catch track events, the Omnes Tug of War field event, and the PHAB Push & Walk marathon.
The club also supports Young Chef, Crocus Planting in support of the eradication of polio, and raised money towards the purchase of a sports wheelchair for the Bristol wheelchair basketball team.
