Building friendships and good relationships between neighbours is an important part of creating a resilient community. Living locally means getting to know the people who live around you. It’s easy to help or ask for help from neighbours that you know and this can lead to all kinds of interactions that benefit everyone. The Messenger Newspaper is featuring stories of neighbours working together, including Sustainable Communities members who are sharing garden space and produce. If you would like to get involved in your own area, please contact Beth firstname.lastname@example.org.
