Happy Chappy, Sends Smiles Across the UK!

A Local man, ‘Moses Peters’ who sits between Torquay and Paignton virtually every day, to ‘spread the joy and happiness’, has made National Newspapers this week. This happy chap can be found just outside the ‘Livermead House Hotel – Torquay’, or on a bench on the junction at ‘Wheatridge Lane’, rain or shine, and he’s made thousands happy, just by Sitting there, and waving at the passing cars.

Moses Peters - The happy chappy.

Little else is know about Moses Peters, He’s a ‘too himself’ kind of person, just there to ‘Spread some happiness’.
When we asked ‘why’, he simply replied ‘Because I want to spread some happiness across Torbay, to give people that smile that we’ve all got inside of us, but don’t always use’.

And his message seems to be getting across, with many people looking out for him when travelling along that road and smiling and waving back in return. Many were tooting their car horns and showing their appreciation for what he does.

A Facebook Page has even been set up in support of him – http://tiny.cc/mosespeters

Sometimes all it takes to make a difference is a smile !

    Maybe it’s because Winter is upon us, and it’s getting a bit cold..
