Neighbours Day Weekend - 24 and 25 March 2012
This event is being celebrated nationally to encourage people to get to know their neighbours.
The Christchurch earthquake experience showed that neighbourhoods where people knew each other well fared much better in the aftermath of that disaster. This would be a great weekend to have a street party or neighbourhood get together at your place and start doing some civil defence planning. PCC has some suggestions in the links below.
Neighbours Day Aotearoa is taking place again this year on March 24 and 25. It's a nationwide movement encouraging communities to come together and neighbours to get to know one another.
There are a range of resources available at http://www.neighboursday.org.nz/?sid=4 and I've attached a few documents that might inspire some of your residents to organise a neighbourhood event.
