A podcast for Britain’s 10,000 village, church and community halls and anyone interested in the vital community services they provide.

Season 1: Episode 7

As well as bringing communities together, village halls can help improve people’s health and wellbeing. Our guest Sian Highnam, talks about a new friendship garden in Fontmell Magna in North Dorset, which the village hall has developed in partnership with the local medical practice. It’s all part of a broader drive within the NHS to rollout something called ‘social prescribing’, which offers a more holistic approach to health. Could your village hall become a social prescribing partner too?

Episode kindly sponsored by Allied Westminster, the UK’s largest specialist provider of village hall insurance and the home of VillageGuard.

Our fortnightly podcast episodes are also sponsored by online booking and invoicing system provider, Hallmaster.
