We think you’ll agree that one thing that coronavirus has shown us how important it is for neighbours to take just a little bit of time to look after each other – and should there be another lockdown, then this strength of feeling will be at the heart of communities throughout the nation once again.
So, if you feel you have a good neighbour in Trowbridge that deserves some recognition, why not nominate them for an award? Perhaps you feel that a younger neighbour is worthy of being recognised – if they’re aged between 18 and 24, they’ve a special category.
This is the third year that a nationwide search jointly run by Neighbourhood Watch and Co-Op Insurance is taking place for the best neighbours in communities. Members of Neighbourhood Watch across the UK say that, to be a great neighbour, people share some clear qualities: a willingness to look out for others, being sociable and friendly, offering practical help, and being kind, caring and respectful.
A statement from Co-op Insurance said: “Our partnership with Neighbourhood Watch is so important to us. We know that active neighbourhoods, where people talk to their neighbours, check in on them and keep a look out for each other are far less likely to be a target for crime and are better places to live.”
Nominations close on Tuesday October 27th, and anyone who wants to enter can click here.
