Social distancing does not have to mean social disconnection.
Knowing your neighbours, and your broader community has never been more important and now is the perfect time to make new friends or simply reconnect with old ones. Neighbour Day is Australia’s celebration of community, encouraging people to connect with others who live in their neighbourhood.
This Neighbour Day, Sunday 28 March, we are encouraging everyone to get creative, reach out and promote social connection while keeping physically distanced.
Residents and community groups in Frankston City can make the most of Neighbour Day to host an event or invite their local neighbours around for a cuppa or barbecue. This is a chance to say hello to each other, make new friends or just discover who actually lives in your street!
To help you celebrate, Council is giving away BBQ packs worth $100 to 25 lucky residents and the chance to receive a souvenir street sign!
