Brookwater celebrates National Neighbour Day

Brookwater celebrates National Neighbour Day

Monday, 4 March 2013

More than 200 Brookwater residents turned out on Sunday 24 February to celebrate National Neighbour Day – Australia’s annual celebration of community.

There were nine registered events that took place throughout the premier golf residential community, with residents asked to pack a picnic or a plate to share and head down to join in the celebrations with their neighbours.

Brookwater Residential General Manager Terry Honan said all nine Neighbour Day events – which were entirely organised by Brookwater residents – were a huge success.

“The Brookwater Neighbour Day celebrations were a huge success this year, with more than 200 residents turning out to celebrate everything that’s great about our community,” Mr Honan said.

“The events were mostly held in various local parks or golf windows across the community, with about 20 to 30 people attending each one.

“It was a great afternoon – we’ve had nothing but positive feedback from the whole community,” he said.

The Neighbour Day event was held a month early in Brookwater, with the national event officially happening on the last Sunday of March.

Mr Honan said the Brookwater Neighbour Day celebrations were held earlier this year so it wouldn’t clash with Easter Sunday.

“The official Neighbour Day celebration always happens on the last Sunday of March which, this year, coincides with Easter Sunday,” Mr Honan said.

“Given we already have a community event planned for Easter Sunday, we thought we would celebrate a month earlier to make the most of both celebrations,” he said.

Neighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community aimed at bringing people together from all over the community.

Brookwater is a premier golf residential community built around the Greg Norman-designed Golf Course and is part of Springfield Land Corporation’s Greater Springfield.
