What we do

Welcome to The Good Heart


We are a group of local people who want to explore and encourage kindness in our home town of Frome, because:

  • we are all capable of kindness

  • kindness is good for our health, wellbeing and relationships

  • the world is a better place when we are kind to each other and ourselves


In Phase One (2018-2021) we opened a friendly and affordable pay-it-forward café, run by our friends at Tibetan Memories and supported other local non-profits who share our values.

In Phase Two we’re developing a range of events and activities that promote health, wellbeing and warm-heartedness. Please join us!
