I am mightily impressed with the Neighbourhood Connect initiative – it’s a particularly good example of the positive action that can be taken to deal with the malaise of social fragmentation, isolation, loneliness and anxiety.
Thank you for your kind invite. It’s brilliant! I’ve been wanting to gather the neighbourhood for over 10 years now but never managed to get round to it. Such a great initiative!
Our neighbourhood get-togethers have included a progressive dinner, street clean-ups, a cake bake-off and a shared backyard garden blitz. They are informal, fun and most of all have helped us feel more connected as a community.
Our event went really well! About 30 people turned up which was fantastic. Lots of people with children! I’m really excited by the first picnic and really looking forward to organising another one!
