A small but kindly bunch of walkers met at 7am this morning, ready to walk the talk for World Kindness Day in Robertson.
"I have a firm belief that kindness is the basis of how we live, especially at community level," said walk organiser and co-founder of charity Where There's a Will Inc Ange Clarke.
"If we use it every day, we build stronger communities."
She is hoping to make the walking group a regular activity in the town, giving locals the chance to meet and chat in an accepting and positive atmosphere.
"When people walk, they talk," said Ange.
"When you talk, you build relationships, and that makes a more connected community.
"If we do this regularly it will give people a chance to connect, especially those who might feel marginalised."
She's hoping that a walking group would also lead to other initiatives, such as 'pay it forward' at local businesses.
"That sort of thing can build a sense of belonging and people feel more included," said Ange.
"If you affect just one person a day, it can change a life."
Alice Richards, from Community Links Well-being, and Wingecarribee Shire Cr Larry Whipper also joined the crew, following up their Kind Hearts campaign earlier in the year.
