Our lives are often so busy many of us don’t know the people living closest to us. Getting to know our neighbours helps create a sense of belonging, strengthens connections and ensures everyone is involved in the buzz of local community. Know My Neighbour is a simple initiative to encourage neighbourliness through sharing creative ideas of friendly activities to get know those that live closest to us. Together we can reduce social isolation in our city – what small part can you play?

The houses either side of ours are inhabited by students and they’ve both just been re-let to new groups of students. I picked up some of your postcards during the Festival in May and I posted one through the house to the right of ours last week. They came round 5 days later with a batch of homemade fairy cakes!! The house to the left has just been re-inhabited this week so I’ll put a postcard through..
