Submit a Good Neighbour Article

We want to hear about the wonderful person in your street who shares and creates a sense of belonging.

Do you have a neighbour who always mows your lawn, bakes delicious cakes, checks on others or simply lends an ear to listen?

Give them a shout-out by submitting a short story for potential publication on this news site.

You can upload an article anytime on our news website for consideration, but good neighbour stories submitted during July 2024 will go into a draw for some great prizes.
