 The APD Podcast, Season 1: In Conversation with Ali Hanham of Deans Court


This week on the podcast I am sharing a local story that wonderfully illustrates how passion & thinking creatively can make an enormous difference. I’m in conversation with Ali Hanham, somebody who I’ve been getting to know for her role at Deans Court, a local private house and gardens that has transformed into a community hub. 

Deans Court is a private house and gardens that I stumbled on one morning as I wandered around one of my local towns. It was like the finding home I'd been hoping for- a kitchen garden café full of local producers and organic, seasonal food; a beautifully curated shop full of antique pieces and handmade items that inspired me instantly. As I nosied my way around the shop I found leaflets for pop up stalls, supper clubs and fascinating looking artists. This seemed to be a hub and so I chased the story and found Ali.

The podcast will now take a break for 2-3 weeks while I recharge it with new stories and interviews. In the meantime I will be sharing stories on the blog and via the newsletter. The newsletter sign up is here if you'd like a monthly dose of inspiration and news. 

To make sure you don’t miss the podcasts return you can subscribe via Itunes, Stitcher Radio or Player FM.  (For those already subscribing via Patreon, the funder works monthly so you will only be billed during the months I record meaning this little break won’t mean you’re billed when I’m not producing fresh content for more than 4 weeks. I very much hope to be back before then!)
