Res­i­dents get­ting streets ahead

Cockburn Gazette - - STREETWATC­H -

A MEM­BER of a Hil­ton-based com­mu­nity group is urg­ing other lo­cals to get to know their neigh­bours by start­ing up their own groups.

Mau­reen Ma­her, Street by Street WA project co-or­di­na­tor and mem­ber of the Hil­ton group, said the project was all about turn­ing streets into com­mu­ni­ties by bring­ing neigh­bours to­gether.

“It is all about help­ing peo­ple to cre­ate com­mu­nity; street by street,” she said.

“We make it easy to do this by giv­ing peo­ple a ‘how-to’ kit, lots of in­spir­ing ex­am­ples, and sup­port by phone and email.

“All the re­sources are pro­vided for free.”
