"We are thrilled that Devon has been chosen as one of the 5 areas for Drink Wise Age Well. The programme aims to deliver information for the over 50s to make informed decisions in terms of alcohol consumption, as well as providing help and support for those who need it.  We put on fun and useful events and classes all over Devon for the over 50s, and also have an advice line that anybody can call for help, or to find out more about the programme."
