Devon Active Villages is a countywide programme funded by Devon County Council and Sport England Lottery funding. The programme is co-ordinated by Active Devon and delivered by a network of local partners. It seeks to support rural communities to develop long-term sports opportunities which enable people of all ages to experience the fun of sport and build a life-long love of being active and healthy.
Since 2010 more than 9000 people in 120 rural community villages across Devon have been able to take part in sport, on their doorstep - thanks to Active Villages.
