Have you heard of Neighbourly?
Neighbourly.co.nz is a Fairfax run community congregation website designed to help connect neighbours communicate and keep in touch about local events and goings on.
Local area events like:
- Work wanted
- Local fairs
- Garage sales
- Community events like Street Parties Etc.
This is all dependent upon local involvement, obviously someone needs to post these events, but as it’s been out for a wee while now, and thanks to advertising drives it is getting more and more popular, so while there may not be much happening in your area it’s worth sticking with it.
My sister in Wellington really waxed lyrical about it so thought it was worth a go so I signed up recently and was quite surprised with the amount of people in my area using it.
Depending on your local politician and police involvement you can also receive alerts like local burgarlies and political speaking events in your area as well.
When you sign up initially you can gain immediate access by supplying a cellphone number, but you do have limited interaction until you receive a letter by post containing your verification code as to confirm your identity and your local area. This can take a wee while.
