He's been inspiring others to lend a hand too and put that goodwill to good use in an old-style, never-goes-out-of-fashion working bee.
Driving past a neglected property up the road from his house, he decided to hatch a plan and help tidy it up.
Mr Smith put out a call on Facebook and it worked. Hundreds saw the post and helping hands came from near and far to help.
