After "living" in the Johnsonville Town Centre for the last year it occurred to us here at Sub Urban that there are a lot of businesses in our town centre that are pretty much invisible. These are the businesses that are above street level in the office buildings. Or located behind other buildings.
Most of us had attended Neighbours Day celebrations in our streets at home and some of us had run them. In my case if it wasn't for our annual street party I would know very few of my neighbours. I now have great friends on my street and we help each other out.
We all agreed that getting to know your neighbours and developing friendships was a key part of feeling a sense of belonging in a place. And ultimately creating resilient communities.
So we had a chat to Viv at AMI here in the Johnsonville Shopping Centre. How about co-hosting a business neighbours party here at Sub Urban?!
AMI love being part of a local community and were right on board with this idea. They agreed to sponsor food and drink for an after work party. Thanks AMI!
We hope that lots of business neighbours come to our party. And I am really looking forward to getting to know my neighbours better :)
