Community members will have the opportunity to say g’day at the upcoming Neighbour Day event hosted by Neighbourhood Watch.
Boreham Park will come alive for Neighbour Day on Sunday, 26 March and provide the opportunity for community members to meet new friends and socialise with one another.
Organising the joint Neighbourhood Watch event, Deputy Chair District Association David Dempster said the day would provide the community with a friendly atmosphere to say g’day.
“We are making a day of it for people to get to know each other,” David said.
“There will be a sausage sizzle put on by the Lions Club, and entertainment including wheelie bin cricket and face painting for the kids.
“We’ll also have Crime Stoppers, headspace and local emergency services coming along to provide the community with information about their services.
“VMR will also have a boat display – there will be plenty to do.”
David said Neighbourhood Watch members would also help community members keep their cars safe by fitting special screws to number plates for them at the event.
“We will have a number of members installing one-way screws to number plates on people’s cars to prevent theft,” he said.
“We’re also taking part in Council’s One Million Trees program and have a number of donated trees that will be there on the day.
“We are holding the Neighbour Day event at the beautiful Boreham Park, but people can come from anywhere to join in.
“It’s going to be an opportunity for people to get to know each other and have fun while doing it.”
Neighbour Day has been celebrated and supported by Bundaberg Regional Council for over 20 years. The themed for 2023 is Say G’day.
