Charlie Hodson has teamed up with Redwell Brewery and The Gin Temple to host Well Being, Nature and A Little Conversation.

Previous evenings have seen more than 50 people in attendance to hear from guest speakers such as former Norwich City midfielder, Cedric Anselin. The next event is on Wednesday, January 16 with guest speakers, chief inspector Lou Provart from Norfolk Police, plant-based recipe developer, Sara Matthews and professional chef, Simon Hunter Marsh.

Mr Hodson said: “Lou Provart will be talking about life working for Norfolk Police, what his job entails and the affect on his wellbeing.

“We don’t have the magic answer on how to deal with mental health, but what we can offer is a hand of friendship”

Talks are at the Gin Temple on Pottergate between 7-9pm.
