A Norfolk chef who has struggled with mental ill health is set to hold his second monthly social event surrounding mental health and wellbeing.

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

The first evening, on November 14, saw 50 people attend to hear from former Norwich City midfielder Cedric Anselin and garden designer Andrew Dellbridge.

The next of the no-bookings-needed events is on Wednesday, December 12 with guest speaker Kirsty Ward from My Little Allotment who will be sharing her PTSD experience and talking about how her allotment has helped her.

The Norwich chef said: 'The whole reason we set it up in a pub is to show that people don't have to suffer at home on their own.'
