City of South Perth Mayor Sue Doherty has encouraged all neighbours to get together, borrow a bag of sports equipment from the City, enjoy a barbecue, verge-side picnic or even organise a garage sale.

Launched in 2012, Streets Alive is a community development initiative promoting community safety in the old-fashioned way by encouraging people to get to know their neighbours.

All Streets Alive events registered with the City of South Perth will go in the draw to win a waterwise verge makeover.

Mayor Doherty said Neighbour Day was a great opportunity to get to know the people next door or across the street.

‘Being neighbourly creates a safer neighbourhood, strengthens our community and makes our streets friendly,’ she said.
