What a time to show some neighbourly love.

We know some people might be feeling a little alone right now, so if everyone in Manningham simply knocked on their neighbours door or called over the fence to say hello to their neighbour, it would mean every household maintains some much needed social contact.

How to be kind to others

  • Smile and say hello to others
  • Check in on an elderly neighbour
  • Do a grocery shop for someone who can’t
  • Find the time to make two calls (not texts!) a day to people you love
  • Ask the person who’s serving you how their day is going (and repeat point one... smile)
  • Drop off a home-cooked meal to someone doing it tough
  • Be a good listener
  • Treat the kids to a movie night at home
  • Cook a special meal together

Offer help to a neighbour

We’ve developed a Be Kind neighbour card you can print and give to your neighbours. Why don’t you check in and see if your neighbour needs help with:

  • Picking up shopping
  • Posting mail
  • A friendly phone call
  • Urgent supplies
