Street parties are a fun way to get to know the neighbours – to socialise and share ideas.
A successful street party could be as small and intimate as a few chairs in a front yard, right up to a BBQ in your local park, or a party in your street or unit block.
Street parties are a great way to connect with neighbours who you see regularly, but don't know well. Street parties are a chance to stop and say hello, and introduce yourselves. They enhance social cohesion, and contribute to a greater sense of trust and safety, and better health and well-being in the community.
