Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : March 4th 2009
10 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, March 5, 2009 MB NEWS Say g'day to the folks next door FOUNDER of Neighbour Day Andrew Heslop is over the moon about the growing support for Neighbour Day on March 29 and said sev- eral companies and govern- ment departments had taken up the torch. ''It is going really well. My email has gone into meltdown,'' Mr Heslop said. ''Some people are organis- ing street parties, some are simply having a quiet coffee with their neighbours." For years Mr Heslop has encouraged people to talk to the folks next door, to simply introduce them- selves and offer human sup- port. The Victorian bushfires sent home the importance of good communication among neighbours, Mr Heslop said. ''The fires have brought the focus back. There are amazing stories of heroism where neighbours have worked to save each other's homes. The Department of Edu- cation is displaying Neigh- bour Day posters in schools around the state and Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore has enthusiastically en- dorsed the event.
