Get to know your neighbour

Neighbour Day is an annual celebration in March celebrating connection with our neighbours.  In the City of Rockingham, we love it so much that we have decided that Neighbour Day should be every day!

A good relationship with your neighbours is important because connection with others can transform communities.

A connected community is a safer community and neighbours play a vital role.
