Do you want to know your neighbours better, but never had the opportunity? Well now you do.
Neighbour Day occurs annually on the last Sunday of March and aims to foster strong connections and build better relationships within our local community. Social connection can improve health and wellbeing outcomes as it helps prevent loneliness, isolation and depression, and most importantly feels good.
The City celebrated Neighbourhood Day 2019 with small grants awarded up to $100 for residents and local community groups to assist in hosting a local event that allowed neighours to meet and connect. Grant events ranged from BBQs to morning and afternoon teas.
