Neighbours, Everybody needs good neighbours
With a little understanding
You can find the perfect blend
Neighbours…should be there for one another
That’s when good neighbours become good friends
Ooh Neighbours, should be there for one another
That’s when good neighbours become good friends.
What has happened to neighborly activity. Does anyone really know their neighbours anymore? Yes I bring the bins in for the elderly couple next door however I can never remember their names and we have lived here nearly 3 years.
The reason for this post well, For the 3 years we have lived here in doing the school run there was a severely disabled boy no older than 10 who lived about 7 doors down, for the past 2 weeks or so my husband and I came to realise that we no longer saw this boy being put into his school bus of a morning, and 2 days ago the specially adapted car appears to have gone! I do not want to think the worse however both the hubster and I can’t help but feel that this little boy has died. We haven’t seen any funeral cars though, but then would we have if it happened in the day time. If he has I feel awful that in 3 years I never said hello, just smiled as we walked to school.
What has happened to knowing all about your neighbours and being part of a community. Why has this part of life died off? Has it died off or is it harder living on an avenue.
When I was younger my neighbour, was my auntie! You know that type of auntie we all have! If mum had to pop out either set of neighbours would listen out, not sit just listen!
I just think it is such a shame that we no longer really know the people we share bricks and mortar with anymore. Bring back neighbour watch. Let’s all throw a street party for this Royal Wedding and get to know our neighbours again!
