The Neighbourhood Project

Tuesday March 25, 2014

‚ÄčCantabrians know better than most what it's like to rely on our neighbours in an emergency situation.  In the three years since Christchurch was changed forever, knowing your neighbour took on a new meaning for many people, because of what we've been through in our communities.

Whether your neighbour is young or old, new to the neighbourhood or has been there for years, The Neighbourhood Project thinks that knowing your neighbour should be a piece of cake.

Over the last weekend in March, we're encouraging neighbours to take us up on the chance to get to know their neighbours a little better: over the fence, over the rugby, or over a cuppa.

The Neighbourhood Project is a collaborative effort of churches to build better connected communities across the city.  It's about fostering better connected communities and encouraging 'neighbourliness' by offering easy to access ways to connect in your neighbourhood.
