The search is on to find and celebrate some of the UK’s bests neighbours.
If your neighbour goes above and beyond for your community, you can nominate them for the ‘Neighbour of the Year Award,’ run by Co-op Insurance and Neighbourhood Watch.
Their members have told them that to be a great neighbour, people share these qualities:
- a willingness to look out for others
- being sociable and friendly
- offering practical help; and
- being kind, caring and respectful
This year there is also a new award category for those aged 21 or under. The ‘Young Neighbour of the Year Award’ celebrates young people who have gone the extra mile to help enhance their community and bring people together - young and old.
If you have a neighbour worthy of either accolade, share the story of their great neighbourly activities and acts of kindness before Tuesday 27 October.
