Say g'day on Neighbour Day

Neighbour Day on 25 March is a great excuse for all Tasmanians to celebrate community and say g’day to people nearby.

Department of Health and Human Services spokesperson Sally Errey said the agency was actively working with Libraries Tasmania and Relationships Australia Tasmania to encourage Neighbour Day activities around the state.

“Now’s the time to plan a community event in your neighbourhood – perhaps a street party, game of cricket, healthy barbie or afternoon tea in the back paddock,” Ms Errey said.

“You can organise an event on your own or work with a group of neighbours to host an event in your street or town.

“You can also contact your council, LINC, Neighbourhood House, Child and Family Centre or other Tasmanian service provider to see if they’ve already got something planned.”

Ms Errey said Tasmanian community groups could win $5 000 as part of the Healthy Tasmania Challenge to help fund local events.

“In addition, up to $100 is available for fresh fruit and vegetables where organisations are working with their local LINC,” Ms Errey said.

“Whether it’s a cuppa, a picnic in the park or a message of support, Neighbour Day is the perfect chance to say thanks for being a great neighbour.”
