Get a grant to host a street party

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park has launched the Street Meet ‘n’ Greet pro­gram tak­ing place this sum­mer, of­fer­ing mini-grants to peo­ple who would like to or­gan­ise a small party to get to know their neigh­bours.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are open for peo­ple to re­ceive $250 mini-grants for neigh­bour­hood get-to­geth­ers or $1000 mini-grants for neigh­bour­hood park par­ties.

The pro­gram en­cour­ages and as­sists res­i­dents to get to know their neigh­bours, help­ing to build a strong and vi­brant com­mu­nity.

Town of Vic­to­ria Park Mayor Trevor Vaughan said he wanted the com­mu­nity to feel con­nected.

“There is some­thing com­fort­ing about liv­ing in a neigh­bour­hood where peo­ple stop and chat in the street and are will­ing to give each other a hand when needed,” he said.

Ap­pli­ca­tion forms to hold neigh­bour­hood get-to­geth­ers or park par­ties, and fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about the mini-grants, are avail­able at www.vic­to­ri­a­park.wa.gov.au.
