Pancake season* is another great excuse to get to know your neighbours.
How can I do it?
Simply make a stack of pancakes (recipe) and invite neighbours to pop around with their favourite topping.
Feeling slightly more adventurous then challenge your neighbours to a pancake race!
Some top tips
- If you have never met your neighbours it might be worth knocking and saying hello when you are delivering the invitation
- Be respectable of older people they might not want to open the door at night or might struggle to leave the house
- Put a timeframe on the invite so everyone arrives at a similar time and the end time will ensure there are no stragglers!
- Invite a close friend to pop in too, that way there’s another friendly face to welcome guests or if only one person turns up it will be handy to a have a friend there
- Have one or two toppings handy just in case
- You might prefer to make the pancakes in advance (keeping them warm) so you can enjoy the pancakes and chat with neighbours when they arrive
- If neighbours don’t come this time don’t be disheartened. Keep being friendly as they get to know you a little more
- Have fun and enjoy!
