Neighbour Day 2012; 25th March

Please take the time next Sunday to participate in Neighbour Day by saying “hello” to your neighbour on Sunday, 25 March. It is important in building a community spirit that people know the people that live nearby , in their street and neighbourhood. As I talk to people some streets seem to have residents who have enormous goodwill toward each other which is fantastic. This goodwill often extends to looking after each other, feeding the dog or even picking up the kids from school. Don and I will organise a ward forum in May at Clarence Park Community Centre , this will be an opportunity to share ideas with us and your neighbours. We will add this to our blogs and put the date in the next Newsletter as well.
(Neighbour Day was established in 2003 in response to press coverage of the death of an elderly woman in her home that went unnoticed for two years. It has been promoted by its founder, Andrew Heslop, ever since with a simple aim to encourage everyone to have better relationships with the people next door and across the street).
