YANCHEP residents will host a Neighbour Day barbecue to encourage the spirit of good neighbours.

Jindowie Residents Group secretary Chelsea Gawthorne said they hoped many residents of the estate would attend and meet others living in the area at the November 16 event.

‘The events bring people together ” the Easter fair we held earlier in the year was such a success it is now an annual event,’ she said.

‘Many people came to the fair not knowing anyone and walked away with friends.’

Estate developer Australand will announce recipients of the first round of Jindowie Community Sponsorship Grants on the same day.

Australand WA development director Justin Crooks said he hoped the Neighbour Day and grants would further grow the community.

‘Living in an area where neighbours know each other and join in local activities creates a community where people feel safe, happy and supported,’ he said.

‘The schedule of events at the estate has grown over the years, particularly with the help of the Jindowie Residents’ Group.’

The group meets on the third Thursday of every month at the Yanchep Community Centre, with the next meeting on Thursday, November 20, from 7pm.

‘We invite new members to come along to the meet and greet to celebrate the end of the year and hear an update from the City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts,’ Ms Gawthorne said. For more information, email Garry at garryf@buildingbettercommunities.com.au.
