So what do we really know about the people that live their lives right alongside us day by day? It's time we get to know one another and build relationships, after all we all share the same community. 

Neighbour Day 2017 is back on Sunday, 26 March, with the City of Kwinana once again helping bring local communities together. The City is providing up to $150 reimbursement in food costs for the first six neighbourhood gatherings registered (conditions apply).

Your Neighbourhood gathering could be:
• street gathering or BBQ;
• BBQ in local park;
• bake-off;
• sports day in local park;
• busy bee or street clean-up;
• new residents welcome lunch;
• morning tea; or
• street garage sale.

City of Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said Neighbour Day is the perfect opportunity for residents to take the time to introduce themselves to the people who live around them.

“The City encourages everyone to get to know their neighbours, not just from a safety and security perspective, but to create happier and more harmonious places to live,” Mayor Adams said.
