Community Spirit

Interesting article in this morning's Advertiser. It seems that a recent study, conducted by the State Government, and released today claims that community involvement has increased from 29% in 2007 to 40% in 2013. Most people become involved by contacting their Councils or signing petitions. While this may reflect a greater effort by Councils to involve the community in decision making it may just be that more people are older and have a bit more free time on their hands: I'm hoping it is not the latter. What they found was;
84% people feel safe in their own community
97% of people like where they live
88% rated their neighbours as friendly and helpful.
