Sunday March 26 // Your Neighbourhood
Celebrate National Neighbour Day this Sunday and get to know your neighbours. Neighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community held in the last week of March every year. It’s a great way to meet your neighbours and help create a strong, safe community where people look out for each other. You could simply say g’day to your neighbour and have a chat over the fence, or invite your neighbour for a cup of tea. If you’d prefer, you could arrange a larger social gathering, like a BBQ, afternoon tea, lunch, street party or a picnic in a local park. Don’t forget to register your event on the Neighbour Day website.
