Join in Neighbours Day
Everyone but the Queensland fruit fly is welcome at the two-day Grey Lynn Neighbours Day festival.
And for those living closer to the city centre, there will be plenty of neighbourly activities lined up at Pioneer Women’s Hall.
The annual Neighbours Day Aotearoa event gets communities to forge relationships and create a happier and safer environment.
For Grey Lynn residents, festivities kick off at 9am on March 28. The To The Castle art exhibition will be held all day at 3 Castle St.
The exhibition will be on display on March 29 too.
A family picnic is being held in Francis Reserve around lunchtime, with attendees encouraged to bring umbrellas in case it rains.
From 11.30am on the same day Grey Lynn Library will run a kids’ programme.
Neighbours are encouraged to host street barbecues from 2.30pm and from 4.30pm head to Gypsy Tea Room on Richmond Rd for early evening festivities.
On March 29 Grey Lynn Community Centre will host the Jam on Toast event at 510 Richmond Rd.
More information on the library event is available at greylynn. org.nz.
And fresh, organic produce will be on sale at the Grey Lynn Farmers Market between 9am and noon.
Central city residents can meet their neighbours on March 28 at the Neighbours Day event running 11am to 3pm.
A barbecue, bouncy castle, live music and $1700 of Neighbourly prizes will be on offer at Pioneer Women’s Hall on High St.
