Celebrate Neighbour Day
March 19, 2012
With less and less people familiar with the family next door these days, why not bring back the old fashioned practice of getting friendly with your fellow residents on Neighbour Day this month?
The Australia-wide celebration on Sunday 25 March is the perfect day to throw a street party or backyard barbeque and finally meet that face across the fence with the help of White Pages®.
If you’re planning a street party, start by contacting your local council to ensure you aren’t contravening any by-laws with your celebrations. Enter its name into White Pages® Government Search to pull up the contact details and make an enquiry.
Support your local retailers by purchasing all of your party provisions close to home. Make planning your shopping trip easy, by entering the details of your local butcher, baker, liquor store and other key suppliers into White Pages® Business Search. Save them to a MyList, accessible from White Pages® Online and via the White Pages® app when on the go. When the RSVPs start rolling in, you can simply dial up and pre-order your supplies to save waiting.
Before your neighbourhood get-together, check the weather forecast. Rain might require a last-minute change of venue. White Pages® Online features a handy Weather Tool, featuring four-day forecasts for Australia’s capital cities.
If showers are forecast and your fellow residents won’t fit in your lounge room, get creative and move the party to your garage. Simply head down to your local hardware store to buy a cheap tarp to extend your space onto your driveway. Give your local hardware store a call first to see if they have the dimensions you need by getting its contact details through White Pages® Business Search.
With a bit of preparation and the help of White Pages®, you should be able to impress the Jones’ next door with a well planned party this Neighbour Day – it could pay off next time you need a cup of sugar.
