YANCHEP residents mingled at a recent ‘Know Your Neighbour’ event that encouraged connected communities.

The City of Wanneroo and developer Peet Limited promoted the initiative at a Yanchep Golf Estate park to create friendlier, safer and more connected communities.

Activities at the free event included a pooch-friendly photo booth, coffee and barbecue breakfast run by the Rotary Club of Mindarie.

“Know Your Neighbour is a fantastic initiative that encourages local residents to host their own gathering with their neighbours,” Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said.

Peet managing director and chief executive Brendan Gore said an important part of building communities was creating the opportunities and spaces for neighbours to get together.

“We were really pleased to welcome everyone to Yanchep Golf Estate’s newest park,” he said.

“It was a great venue and it was great to see everyone having such a good time.”
