Win food and friendship on Good Neighbour Day
6 January 2012
Australians have to get over the fear of becoming a nosey neighbour and be more involved in their community, Fraser Coast Mayor Mick Kruger said.
“Being a good neighbour is not about interfering in our neighbours’ lives, it’s about saying hello and helping out when needed,” he said.
To improve neighbourly relations Council and the Queensland Department of Communities are encouraging neighbourhoods to get together on Neighbour Day, Sunday, March 25.
The idea is to create friendlier, happier and safer neighbourhoods by encouraging an activity that brings people together, such as a morning tea or a barbecue.
To help get the barbecues going, if you register your Neighbourhood barbecue with Council you will go into the draw to win one of 25 neighbourhood barbecue starter packs.
To register click here and tell us in 100 words or less why your neighbourhood is the friendliest in our region.
A barbecue starter pack contains:
The street with the best response will win the grand prize - a street sign to show their neighbourhood is the Friendliest on the Fraser Coast.
Entries close Friday March 2. All barbecues must be held on Sunday the 25th of March and the correct time of your barbecue must be entered on the entry form.
