This Town Gathers for a Yearly Group Hug

Neighbours get out from behind their devices and meet in person.

The TottenHug was started in 2016 by Rob Farah. A local community Facebook group, now over 6000 members strong, was devolving into bickering and complaining and Rob thought something should be done to fix that.
He explains:


The Tottenhug has happened every year since 2016 and it has even inspired a community hug in Hastings, England!
