Celebrating Neighbours Day
by Brighton Council
Centacare Evolve Housing celebrated Neighbours Day this year with events and competitions running throughout March and April.
Neighbour Every Day is Relationships Australia’s initiative that encourages everyone to create belonging in their communities. Neighbour Day is the annual day of action for this campaign, celebrated on the last Sunday of March. Centacare Evolve Housing ran a gardening competition throughout March. Three winners were selected from around the state. “We had so many fantastic entries it was hard to pick a winner” said Centacare Evolve Housing Community Wellbeing Officer, Elise.
Goldia, a member of the Brighton community, is one of the winners for her pretty and quirky garden. A joint effort between Goldia and her sister, this garden is a space of connection, quality time, and the perfect sanctuary for Goldia and her puppy, Milo.
“We loved hearing about what gardens meant to people and how a sense of belonging grew through connection with nature,” Said Centacare Evolve Housing Community Wellbeing Manager, Christina.
