THERE has been plenty of love spread across Bromsgrove today (Thursday) with the town's eighth Day of Kindness.
There was another good turn-out in the town centre, which played host to live entertainment, led by Trevor T, and a host of stalls.
Bromsgrove and District Town Twinning Association collected messages of goodwill from residents to send to its twin towns in Germany and France - Gronau and St Sauveur Lendelin, volunteers from Willows Hedgehog Rescue were offering free hugs and the Bromsgrove Lions were giving away free lion-shaped biscuits.
Other organisations with stalls included Bromsgrove District Housing Trust (BDHT), the Basement Project and NewStarts.
The event also featured a Zumba session and concluded with the annual sing-along of The Beatles' classic 'All You Need is Love', followed by a conga around the High Street.
Lorenzo Richards, from the Wildmoor Oak, was offering free Caribbean food samples in the town centre, including curry goat and festive dumplings.
He said: "This is the first one I've managed to get to - it's a really good idea and so nice for people to get together, just to be kind to each other.
"There are too many things going on in the world that are not nice - the Day of Kindness is a fantastic concept and something we should all try and do every day."
The event was the brainchild of Catshill resident Phil Haynes and has been backed by The Standard since its launch in 2005.
