As the festive season can be a hazardous time with spikes in crime, increased road accidents and probably some family drama, getting ready for the year ahead may seem like a breeze. With the hustle and bustle of December coming to a close it’s time to get back into your daily flow, but it’s also a great time to get to know your neighbours. Here are a few reasons why you should!

1. Long Lasting friendships
Many friendships strike up over a wall or a friendly chat in the driveway and getting to know your closest neighbours could be the start of a long lasting friendship that lasts much longer than the stay in that house.

2. Arrange a Neighbourhood Street braai:
Organise an afternoon where all neighbours are invited to braai at a centralised place, maybe the local park or in someone’s driveway. This gives you the opportunity to network and get to know everyone.

3. Business Networking:
If you do have your own business, who knows who you may meet whose services you may be able to meet.

4. Sport & Recreation:
Meeting a neighbour who likes to run or exercise could be the perfect way for you to get motivated to get into shape.

5. Kids Friends:
Kids need to get out, ride bikes and play with friends, what a better way for them to do this if you know and trust the neighbours.

Taking the time to catch up with old neighbours and meeting new ones is a great way to prepare for the security of your neighbourhood and your home for the upcoming year. You never know how you can help each other, whether it’s a cup of sugar, a flat tyre in the early hours of the morning or improved community security.
