Everybody needs good neighbours….

If you’ve gdscn5809ot a good neighbour, why not share your story to enter them in the ‘Good Neighbour’ competition being held by Neighbours’ Day Aotearoa?

“Good Neighbours make streets great places to live. From sharing extra garden produce, to helping an older person get out to the shops, to organising a street party, Good Neighbours help make great neighbourhoods. And so, to kick start a summer of neighbourliness on your street, we’ve partnered with The Warehouse to help you say thanks to your Good Neighbour.” (NDA)

Nominate your neighbour here: http://www.neighboursday.org.nz/good-neighbour-competition and they could be in to win one of nine $500 summer prize packs.

And even if they don’t win (especially if you don’t nominate them), why not just take the chance to say thanks next time you see them?
