Get to know your Neighbour - Meet your Street BBQ's

Win a BBQ Pack through clean-up Campaign

The purpose of the Get to know Your Neighbour ‘Meet Your Street’ campaign is to raise awareness of the importance of social connection and neighbourly actions throughout the year.  Particularly in the lead up to Cyclone season, knowing your neighbours, and your broader community has never been more important.

This year’s campaign will also include an initiative prompting residents to get to know their neighbours and assist them in being informed and prepared for storm season. That campaign includes local residents nominating as a group to hold a “get to know your neighbour” street get together in conjunction with Councils Clean Up campaign, with one group per Council division being  in a draw  to receive $200 worth of BBQ supplies for their event from Council.  The divisional Councillor will also attend the BBQ to expand on the campaign. 

Registrations to win BBQ packs are open to residents living within Council’s six divisional areas: One BBQ pack for each division.

Please Note

  • Any risks associated with the conduct of Know Your Neighbour events are the responsibility of the host individuals and organisations and their neighbourhoods and communities. The wellbeing of participants should be considered in event planning.
  • Consideration should be given to keeping everyone attending an event safe, particularly children.
  • Some tips are: stick to an invitation-only event; work with the local councils or relevant authorities in respect to road blocking permissions; ensure alcohol is consumed in moderation; observe fire bans; and be careful near lakes, rivers and other bodies of water.
  • Also, ask your guests to keep an eye out for others whilst at the event, safety is everyone’s responsibility.
  • And, a good neighbour always ensures that their friends get home safely.
