Let's Get Neighbourly Maroondah - Create your Neighbour Group!
You've come to the right place if you live in the City of Maroondah and you enjoy bringing people together so that you can..

Help your neighbours feel like they belong....

Plan and run fun activities where you live...

Build confidence at skill-building workshops
This exciting project, sponsored by the City of Maroondah's Community Recovery - Be Kind Initiative, gives free individual mentoring and workshops, as well as the support, tools and tips to create firstly a gathering of neighbours and then an ongoing group.
We are seeking committed local people with a welcoming and inclusive attitude, a willingness to work with others and a love for their community. If you have a partner, neighbour or friend who is also keen, please ask them to register their interest also, and you could do this as a team.
There will be two workshops, with one to one mentoring and your first neighbours event in between. Experienced Connectors will share their wealth of knowledge to make your event a success! For this program to be successful, we ask that you commit to holding an event with your neighbours and come to both workshops if you can.
Workshops will be held the Glen Park Community Centre and the North Ringwood Community Centre.
NOTE: IMPORTANT UPDATES: DUE TO LOCKDOWNS in VICTORIA, THE PRGRAM EVENTS ARE ON HOLD aAT PRESENT. PLEASE COMPLETE THIS FORM AND WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED AS NEW EVENT DATES ARE FINALISED.
This program builds on the success of earlier Let's Get Neighbourly Maroondah programs, where local connectors have created several neighbour groups are are reaping the benefits of enjoyable social activities with neighbours, a greater sense of community, new friendships, sharing produce and helping one another.
