Whether you live in Everton Park, the middle of the city or out in the country, having good neighbours is always important. We cross our neighbour’s path on a regular basis and having a good relationship with them can make living in our home a lot more pleasurable.
But having good neighbours often comes down to being a good neighbour yourself. If you do little things like mowing the front lawn or taking their bins out while they are away, it can all be the start of creating a long and valued friendship.
Here are some neighbourly suggestions and ideas for being a good neighbour:
If you haven’t met already then introduce yourself or invite your neighbour over for a coffee to help break the ice.
Swap contact details so you can get in touch with each other in case of emergencies.
If you need a favour such as getting them to collect mail while you are away, then offer to do something in return such as taking their bins out for example.
Hold a BBQ or party and invite people in your street over so everyone can meet each other.
Be respectful. If you plan on having a party or a noisy gathering, warning your neighbours is the polite thing to do.
Get involved with your local neighbourhood watch.
There’s nothing like having good neighbours, so go next door and introduce yourself today!
