Tawa res­i­dents lead­ing Neigh­bourly charge in Welling­ton

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Tawa res­i­dents seem to be the most neigh­bourly in Welling­ton.

Lat­est Neigh­bourly membership fig­ures in­di­cate there are more than 1600 mem­bers in Tawa.

Neigh­bourly is New Zealand’s first free and pri­vate neigh­bour­hood web­site, and co- founder Casey Eden said he was amazed at the im­pact the site was hav­ing.

Since its launch in June 2014, Neigh­bourly’s membership has grown to more than 120,000 house­holds in 1700 neigh­bour­hoods.

‘‘From street and neigh­bour- hood din­ner par­ties, pets re­united with own­ers, com­mu­nity gar­den groups up-an­drun­ning and neigh­bours band­ing to­gether to pro­vide food and cloth­ing for needy fam­i­lies, we def­i­nitely feel we’re on the right track,’’ Eden said.
