YOUR LISTENING COMMUNITY
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?
