Not only that, they then deleted the story from their site.

But not so fast! Here's the cached version:

An event aimed at cheering people up in Hemel Hempstead has been cancelled due to bad weather.

Today (Monday, January 21) has been dubbed the most depressing day of the year but Dacorum Borough Council had been planning on handing out free smiles to passers-by in Marlowes,

The smile-inducing workers were also due to hand out flyers featuring 10 reasons to be cheerful in Dacorum from 10am-12noon in the pedestrianised area.
