Neighbours Helping Neighbours
There’s an unlimited number of things we can do to help each other “reduce, reuse, recyle & reinspire” on a local basis. Here are some ideas:
✦ Tool exchange/loan/share
✦ Musical instrument lessons
✦ MAC/PC computer help
✦ Holiday plant/garden care
✦ Emergency child minding
✦ Construction/reno skills
✦ Nutrition advice
✦ Service recommendations
✦ Children’s clothing/toys
✦ Too many zucchini/tomatoes
✦ Welcome new residents
✦ Buy/sell stuff
✦ Monitor homes when away
✦ Share a ‘cold one’ & a laugh
Mission and Purpose
Busy lives seem to reduce the opportunities for the kind of friendly neighbour communication and assistance we’d like to have on Davie Street.
The purpose of this newsletter is to keep in contact and provide a way to help each other, maintain the safety of our block, build on the wisdom and experience that resides on our block, and strengthen our relations as neighbours.
The advantages of an email newsletter are that it is fast, easy to produce, and virtually free. Items that appear in the newsletter are submitted by residents and typically pertain to concerns and interests of the neighbours. The newsletter is published about 6-8 times per year.
All email addresses and comments are private and are not shared in the newsletter without explicit permission.
Visitors can view all pages plus the Table of Contents for each issue. Residents with a userid and password can view or download any issue.
The Davie Street e-News is distributed by email to all households on the 1000 block of Davie Street, interested neighbours, selected Victoria City Council members and editors of other neighbourhood association newsletters.
