Neighbour Day 2021 - Every day is Neighbour Day
Connected people = Connected communities

 

Neighbour Day 2021

 

The crazy year of 2020 saw so many great stories of neighbourly connection globally, from using balconies to stay in touch to sharing of home-grown produce, balcony discos to driveway socially distanced drinks. Your neighbourly action might be a simple hi when you see your neighbour.

Neighbour Day is an annual celebration of community and is held on the last Sunday of March each year. This year’s theme is ‘Every day is Neighbour Day’. It reinforces that connected people = connected communities. Lendlease has been a proud partner with the home of Neighbour Day, Relationships Australia, since 2015 and was recently acknowledged by them as a Very Neighbourly Organisation!

Or, you could join a Neighbour Day Wellness Walk that is open to all, to support hailstorm impacted residents who are rebuilding, both physically and mentally, after a such a life-changing event. The 45-minute walk around Discovery Lake will have guest speakers and experts in health and mental well-being. There will also be activities and a morning tea will be provided. To register visit https://bit.ly/3esPO0M
