Bundaberg Regional Council has been celebrating Neighbour Day for over 20-years.
The theme for 2023 Neighbour Day is Say G’day!
Bundaberg Regional Council encourages the community to say g’day and build strong connections with their neighbours. Research shows that communities where people know each other have better mental health, area safe and more resilient to adversity.
Gin Gin, Childers and Bundaberg are individual communities who have different ways of supporting their people. Therefore, to encourage a strong and resilient community, knowing your neighbours is synonymous with supporting and caring for one another.
On Sunday 26 March 2023, Council encourages ‘street champions’ to get their neighbours together to host an afternoon of activity in their street.
Street champions will receive a planning kit with:
- Helpful hints to planning the afternoon
- Invitations to fill in the blanks and drop off in their neighbour’s letterboxes
- Survey to get feedback from the activity
- Games pack
Nominate to host your neighbours this Neighbour Day by completing the below form.
Nominations close 10 March 2023.
