Nominate a Good Neighbour Neighbourhood Week

Nominate a Good Neighbour Neighbourhood Week

In support of Neighbourhood Week, Christchurch City Libraries are giving the residents of Christchurch the opportunity to recognise a member of their community for contributing to others in a special way.

To reward neighbourly goodwill, members of the public are invited to nominate another person for doing good things for others, or something exceptional within their community. One nominee at each Christchurch City Library will win a Pamper Hamper containing some wonderful ingredients for a relaxing weekend!

Competition runs from Friday 24 October through to Friday 31 October and can be entered on-line at http://library.christchurch.org.nz/OnLineCompetition.asp or at any of the Christchurch City Libraries.
