WORKING FOR DEVIZES AND ROUNDWAY
Beginnings: "It's not just about trees...."
Our origins sprang from outrage at the decision of the local authority, Kennet District Council, to fell the historic plane trees in the Market Place in the face of huge opposition from local residents.
Devizes Guardians came into being, determined to call the local authorities to proper account for their decisions, as we felt that the matter of the trees demonstrated that Councils had become inward-looking cliques who no longer reflected the needs and concerns of local people.
In subsequent elections, our candidates were decisively voted into office, continuing to the present day when we are now the majority group on the new Devizes Town Council.
