Get to know your neighbours 24 + 25 March 2018

Whether you live in a suburb, on a city block, in an apartment or on a rural property, you have neighbours – and knowing your neighbours matters.

On the weekend of the 24th + 25th March 2018, communities of all shapes and sizes across the country will be taking time out to get to know their neighbours. The annual Neighbours Day Aotearoa, now in its 9th year, is a time for neighbours to celebrate their communities and get to know new neighbours.

This year the team at Neighbours Day have come up with some simple ways to connect, along with ways to get your neighbours involved and what you might need. Whether it’s a barbecue on the berm or fiesta between the floors, there is toolkit of ideas that are simple, cost effective and won’t take up all your time at

“We’d like to see people reach out to others in their neighbourhood, and make connections that we hope will enhance the wellbeing of individuals, family/whanau and the wider community.

“It is important for us to encourage people to think about who in their community isn’t connected, and how to make space for them to feel welcome,” says Neighbours Day Aotearoa spokesperson Cissy Rock.

Neighbours Day Aotearoa is a collaborative campaign organised and supported by Lifewise, Inspiring Communities, The Mental Health Foundation, Christchurch Methodist Mission and New Zealand Red Cross.
