Most neighbourly year yet!
Neighbour Day 2017 had great results this year with participation increasing by 53% (from 2016). Participation numbers are estimated to be more than 96,000!
Post event survey respondents (90%) told us that they think Neighbour Day is a useful way to connect with their neighbours, with 96% planning to maintain ongoing contact. Many people (80%) said they had been involved with Neighbour Day previously and that this resulted in ongoing connection throughout the year.
Some of the reported benefits for hosts/organisers and neighbours/community were ‘Fun, enjoyment, social, celebrate’; ‘Help to create a strong community’; ‘Get to know their neighbours’, and ‘Show their support for others / check in on neighbours’.
Thanks everyone who participated in the survey and for your very neighbourly input!
