Know your neighbour

Knowing our neighbours turns the place where we live into a home.  We can create our own strong communities by getting to know each other, one neighbour at a time.

Why is it important

Getting to know our neighbours helps us to build better relationships and support each other.  We can share resources, like borrowing a ladder or helping each other during severe weather events or other emergencies.  We can all welcome new neighbours, say g'day and look out for each other.

Neighbour Day - Sunday 29 March 2020

Times are tough and unusual at the moment, so looking out for each other is more important than ever during the coronavirus pandemic.

This Neighbour Day, Moreton Bay residents are encouraged to check in with those closest to them - their neighbours!

In the spirit of this year’s theme ‘social connection’, residents are encouraged to:

  • Download and share a free G’Day Neighbour postcard and pop it in their neighbours’ letter box.
  • Continue to practise good hygiene such as hand sanitation if sharing the postcard physically. Or ask for your neighbours email to send electronically.

From picking up groceries if they are self-isolating to calling for a friendly chat, let’s all help each other during these times of need.
