To celebrate the occasion Neighbourhood Support Nelson is giving away food and equipment hire vouchers for neighbourhood events around this weekend.
The vouchers are available to any neighbourhood gathering of 5 households or more in the Nelson city boundaries. They include meat pack, pizza and bakery vouchers for social gatherings and waterblaster, weedeater and trailer hire vouchers for neighbourhood clean-ups.

The vouchers have been funded through a grant from the Nelson City Council, and sponsorship from participating businesses such as Pestell’s Rai Bacon Company, Stoke Bakery, Pizza Hut and Hirepool.
Neighbourhood Support Nelson also has tips for organising neighbourhood events on its website, and other resources can be obtained from the Neighbours Day Aotearoa website www.neighboursday.org.nz
