Neighbours Day Aotearoa is back and has even more ways you can get involved next year with their theme: The Great Plant Swap 🌻

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

The first 200 to register their event, whether your usual BBQ, street party or something new like a plant swap, will be sent a packet of seeds to help you get started!

You can also write something nice (in 30 words or less) about your neighbours, community or acts of neighbourliness you've experienced with their new 'Notes for Neighbours' - any sort of note goes including poems! These will be shared on their Facebook, Instagram and website and 5 will be specially chosen to be featured on posters across Aotearoa.

Register your event, big or small, here today:

Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Push to get every Kiwi scanning, every time

Come on Neighourly folk remember to scan, every time you go out.
As new highly transmissible Covid-19 strains send countries into second and third lockdowns, Stuff is forging ahead with its “Stop! Scanner time” campaign to remind Kiwis of the importance to keep scanning QR codes, should there be a community outbreak.
Everyone – every single one of us – needs to be scanning the NZ Covid Tracer app, or signing in on a sheet of paper, every single time.
Come on Neighourly folk remember to scan, every time you go out.
