Unsuspecting city centre visitors were treated to free teas, sweets and even car parking last Friday (17 February) as CH1ChesterBID’s welcome ambassadors celebrated Random Acts of Kindness Day.
Dressed in their stylish three-piece suits and bowler hats, Luka Jake-Morrell and Monica Roman spent the day surprising people on the Chester’s high street with thoughtful acts of kindness.
Cups of tea and coffee were handed out to passers by throughout the morning and free sweets were left behind the till for lucky customers in Tilly’s – a brand new independent sweet shop on Watergate Street. A number of city centre shoppers also had their parking paid for by the welcome team during the day.
Julie Charlton, Marketing Manager at CH1ChesterBID, said: “Monica and Luka are always on hand to help people with directions and point out local landmarks but we wanted to use Random Acts of Kindness Day to really go the extra mile for our city centre visitors.
“From free car parking to complimentary coffees, we hope our welcome team put a smile on a few people’s faces and made the Chester city centre experience even more memorable.”
CH1ChesterBID’s welcome team has been giving Chester visitors a warm welcome, pointing out local landmarks and attractions and guiding people around the city centre since November 2015. They’ve engaged with more than 37,000 visitors in that time and also play an important role keeping the city centre safe and attractive by working closely with CH1ChesterBID’s City Centre Manager, Nick White.
