Neighbour Day

Listen

Neighbour Day PhotoNeighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community, bringing together the people next door, across the street or on the next farm for a beer, a barbie or just a cuppa.

Traditionally held on the last Sunday in March every year, it’s the perfect day to say thanks for being a great neighbour and for being there when I needed you most.

The actual meaning of Neighbour Day is so much more …

Neighbour Day is all about building better relationships with the people who live around us, especially the elderly and vulnerable.

Neighbours are important because good relationships with others can and do change communities. Social connection also makes us feel better as it helps prevent loneliness, isolation and depression.

We understand that "getting to know your neighbours" is important and we encourage you to hold your own neighbourhood get together on the last Sunday in March (or anytime around that date).

Register on the Neighbour Day website www.neighbourday.org and receive a Free e-kit with resources (invites and tips) to make participation easy. Let us know as well if you are holding a barbecue or get together as we would love to hear your stories. 

If you would like some additional tips on how to get started visit www.campbelltown.sa.gov.au/neighbourhoods.
