Good Neighbours

In the run up to the festive period Sacro’s Community Mediation Service in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are running a “Love thy Neighbour” Competition. Residents in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire are being invited to nominate someone who has been a particularly good neighbour this year. 
Irene Reid, Community Mediation Team Leader said: “We tend to hear the stories about neighbours falling out so it is always heartening to hear the positive stories. It is a brilliant opportunity for people to thank a neighbour who has gone that extra mile in 2013.
“Nominated neighbours may have helped with DIY, sorting bills, looking after their neighbours’ houses, taking someone on outings or shopping trips. Or, they have just been there in a time of need.”
Nominations are open from Monday 4 November to Friday 22 November; nomination forms will be available on the Sacro website and from the Aberdeen office. A winner will be announced from each area a small prize giving ceremony will take place in the Aberdeen office during the start of December.
