Do you know the name of your neighbour? Do you have ongoing connections within your neighbourhood? If not, it might be a good time to get involved in this year's Neighbour Day - an annual celebration of the community which encourages people to connect with those who live in their neighbourhood.

You can play your part by hosting a morning tea, barbeque or picnic in the park to build connections with new neighbours or thank existing ones for being there when you need a hand. Neighbours can be part of a support system during times of emergency or crisis (such as natural disasters), to share and celebrate happy life moments and at times of sadness, grief and loss.

This year's theme is "Loneliness: What neighbours can do to create connections."

Neighbour Day is held on the last Sunday in March - you might just kick start a new relationship with your neighbours, which will grow throughout the year.

Neighbour Day is managed by Relationships Australia who can register your event and provide you with additional resources to help make your day a success. Relationships Australia is a community-based, not-for-profit Australian organisation which offers services around the country that include counselling, family dispute resolution (mediation) and a range of family and community support and education programs.

So get to know your neighbours this Neighbourhood Day. As the song says, 'Everybody needs good neighbours'.

I couldn't help but hum the bars of 'Who are the people in your neighbourhood?' from Sesame St as I read this!
