Host a neighbourhood get-together such as a street party, morning/afternoon tea, bbq or gathering in the local reserve or park.
Hosting a neighbourhood get together is a perfect way to get to know your neighbours. Doing it on neutral ground such as a cul-de-sac, a local park or reserve or on the verge of your street means that no one person has to host it in their own home.
Ask your neighbours to bring along their own drinks and a plate to share. Be a good host and turn up early to welcome new neighbours as they arrive. And most importantly, have fun!
Neighbours Day Aotearoa is a great weekend to host your neighbourhood get-together. We can support you with resources and assistance to make sure it is simple for you to connect with your neighbours. If you have anyone in your neighbourhood that might be keen to help you invite them to join you in organising the get-together.
