Know Your Neighbour Weekend: 9-10 July 2011

The Wheel is proud to be associated with the sixth national Know your Neighbour Weekend, which takes place over the weekend of 9 to 10 July.

This worthy initiative by Macra na Feirme aims to encourage good neighbourliness and stronger communities. Irish people are seeing a change in their living circumstances, and it is important that people get to know their neighbours and those in their locality, because in times like these it's good to know those who are close to you.

This is also a great opportunity to thank your supporters, or to link in with other community and voluntary groups in your area.



We encourage you to get involved by organising a:

  • coffee morning
  • barbecue
  • sports day/evening 
  • cheese and wine evening
  • or any other event that will help you to get know people and groups in your area.

Can’t do it over the weekend? Why not organise an event on the Friday afternoon (8 July)? It’s the perfect way to start the weekend!

You  can order an organiser's pack containing printed posters, fliers, stickers, balloons and T-shirts from .
With your help we hope to the Make Know Your Neighbour Weekend 2011 the best yet!
