Flower Power – How Fontmell’s Friendship Garden Will Boost Wellbeing

The official opening of Fontmell Magna’s Friendship Garden attracted dozens of villagers and project supporters yesterday.

A reporter from The Village Halls Podcast attended, too, Alfred spoke with some of the residents who have created this community space.

Locals will use the plot to grow flowers that they can cut and take home. Dorset’s Lord-Lieutenant Angus Campbell opened the garden. He is a patron of Dorset Mind and he told Alfred that he understands how the garden will boost well-being.

Project organiser and founder Siân Highnam says it’s ‘beyond brilliant’ that her dream has become a reality.
