Neighbours Day 2019 Image

Get to know your neighbours before an emergency happens

Do you know your neighbours? If not, why not get to know them at Neighbours Day events in your area? You could be each other’s best source of support in an emergency.

It’s good to know your neighbours and have a contact number for them if you need someone to check on your property or feed your cat if you can’t get home.  But in an emergency, the people you live nearest can suddenly become your most immediate source of support. Knowing your neighbours and having a quick conversation about how you could help each other out in an emergency, such as sharing resources like a gas BBQ, is an easy way to be more prepared.

Neighbours Day is marking its 10th anniversary with ten days of celebrations between Friday 22nd and Sunday 31st March 2019.

There are so many different ways to get to know your neighbours! Whether you’re keen to attend an event, host an event, or you’re an organisation wanting to encourage people to participate, check out the Neighbours Day Aotearoa website.

Find Neighbours Day events near you or register to take part by visiting the Neighbours Day Aotearoa website 

During Neighbours Day celebrations your local WREMO advisors will be out and about engaging with communities around the Wellington Region and running events where you can learn how you can be more prepared as a community and meet your neighbours while enjoying a free BBQ. Check out the list of events below or book us to come along to your next community group meeting.
