Nice neighbours: Good friends Frank Fitzgerald and Dawn Beale will celebrate Neighbour Day in Murchison tomorrow.
Good friends Frank Fitzgerald and Dawn Beale are the epitome of the Neighbour Day message.
Tomorrow’s Neighbour Day is about celebrating good neighbours and friends and meeting different people from across the neighbourhood.
Mr Fitzgerald and Mrs Beale met while volunteering at Murchison Neighbourhood House several years ago and became fast friends.
Mr Fitzgerald, who is known as the local handyman, has lived on Impey St for several years.
He said Neighbour Day would be a good opportunity to have a chat with different people along the street.
Murchison Neighbourhood House co-ordinator Jenny Lister said said the day would be a good opportunity for people to celebrate the diversity of Impey St and get to know their neighbours.
‘‘It will be a great opportunity for people to meet and have a cuppa,’’ she said.
‘‘We have a really diverse street, with residents and doctors, schools, and the Neighbourhood House, so it’s a great way to engage people.’’
Greater Shepparton City Council is partnering with the Act-Belong-Commit campaign to promote and celebrate Neighbour Day.
Act-Belong-Commit encourages people to be physically, socially and mentally active, belong to a group or club and to commit to a role within that club.
City of Greater Shepparton Mayor Jenny Houlihan said Neighbour Day was a great excuse for neighbours to get together for a game of cricket or a street barbecue.
‘‘Bringing neighbours together fosters a sense of community, breaking down barriers to loneliness and isolation. Knowing those who live around you creates a sense of community, making people feel safer, friendly and resilient,’’ Cr Houlihan said.
