Good Neighbour Award

If there is one good thing to come out of the Coronavirus pandemic, it’s the way it has bought people closer together. Neighbours that had never spoken before suddenly met on a Thursday night to cheer on our NHS heroes and new friendships have been made.

We know that there are lots of people that give up their time to help others in the community and we want to say thank you to them. So, this year we have launched the Two Rivers’ Good Neighbour award.

Do you have a brilliant neighbour that has helped you out during the lockdown, helps the local community, makes an effort to improve the area that they live in or is simply always there when you need them? If so, we want to hear about it!

To celebrate those helping their local communities, we’ve got three prizes available, with a £100 voucher for the overall winner and two £50 vouchers for two runners up.

How to nominate

The person you nominate does not need to be a Two Rivers tenant, but they need to have helped out in one of the communities that we work in and must be nominated by a Two Rivers tenant.
