800 acts of kindness from village church

A village in North Somerset has undertaken 800 individual acts of kindness to celebrate its local church.

The village of Congresbury has exceeded its challenge of more than 800 good deeds to celebrate 800 years of its local parish church, St Andrews.

The 3,500 villagers have been taking part in the anonymous Love Congresbury project, where the good deed is written on a small note and posted at the church.


Becci North, one of the organisers of the Love Congresbury and an active member of the church told Premier that the deeds "range from one child helping another child to put their socks on after gym class, somebody mowing somebody's lawn, giving somebody a lift to hospital, giving aid to Calais."

She told Premier that she was "absolutely amazed, it's been absolutely wonderful to think that so many people have embraced it, of all ages, all backgrounds of faith, of no faith."

Becci North said that it was a way of enforcing community and "spreading God's love through the community."
