Is it time that you went around and said hello to your neighbours?
On Sunday March 25, the 10th annual Neighbour Day will be taking place and it will provide the perfect opportunity for suburb residents to connect or reconnect with the people that live in the local community.
Over the past 10 years, big celebrations have been held to help mark Neighbour Day. Some neighbourhoods hold street parties, backyard barbecues, games of cricket on the street or a picnic in the local park.
If you don’t have any events like this in your neighbourhood though, then why not start one of your own this year? You may even be able to get permission from the Brisbane City Council to close off your street for the day so that you can hold a neighbourhood event.
Even if you don’t hold a big event though, the idea behind Neighbour Day is to get to know everyone around you a little bit better and to connect with the local community.
Neighbour Day started following the tragic death of an elderly woman in her home, whose body was not found for two years.
It is hoped that through Neighbour Day and the message that is stands for, that events like this don’t need to happen again.
So in honour of Neighbour Day coming up, go and chat to your neighbours and maybe even organise a get-together. Remember though that it’s always important to connect with the people around and not just on Neighbour Day. You might even like to do something kind like help your neighbours mow their lawns or take out their bins if need be. Making even the smallest gesture of generosity can help bring your neighbourhood together.
