Get to know neighbours through barbeque lunch

torch_28052008Residents in Campsie are invited to get to know their neighbours at a barbeque organised by the Campsie Tenant Rescue Centre at Riverwood.

Canterbury councillor Karl Saleh said everyone was welcome to ‘come along and meet the neighbours’ and the event was a good opportunity to reduce social isolation in the community.

“The occasion will bring together different cultural tenants from across Campsie to foster a sense of belonging and mutual respect among residents,” Cr Saleh said.

“It’s a great opportunity to encourage communication and positive relations amongst residents, promote the values of peace, unity and respect, reduce social isolation and indulge in a delicious meal.”

Sponsored by Canterbury Council through its Community Harmony program, a halal barbeque and refreshments will be provided at the free neighbourhood get together.

The ‘Get to know your neighbour’ barbeque will be on from 11.30am to 1pm on Thursday, May 29 at 27 Campsie Street, Campsie. For more information contact the Tenant Resource service at Riverwood on 9584 8473.
