Today is World Kindness Day, and we couldn’t think of a better chance to show our appreciation for our community’s good neighbours. A 90-second speed read.
Friday the 13th is usually viewed with suspicion given its ‘unlucky for some’ label.
But this year’s vintage is a time to celebrate and cast aside any superstitions and celebrate World Kindness Day.
And 2020 is certainly the year where kindness and community spirit were needed like never before.
World Kindness Day started in Tokyo in 1998 and has since grown into a global movement of doing nice things for others.
At DREWERY PROPERTY CONSULTANTS, we want to take this opportunity to celebrate the kindness and care of the good neighbours across SIDCUP who make each other’s lives that much better.
The experience of lockdowns and restrictions this year has highlighted the value of generosity, compassion, and community spirit.
So, let’s hear it for our local heroes, AKA good neighbours.
Here are three simple things you can do to let your neighbours know how much they mean to you.
- Send a text to them, something along the lines of ‘Today is World Kindness Day, and you sprang to mind because you are a very kind and considerate neighbour’.
- Pop a note or card through their door, thanking them for being such a good person to live near.
- Tag them in this post, letting them know why you think they are fab.
The importance of having good neighbours is a huge plus point for people seeking a new home.
The Value of Good Neighbours
According to a survey featured in an article on the Ideal Home website, the majority of people who were asked about the importance of having good neighbours said they would gladly pay 1 to 3 per cent above the asking price to guarantee they got on with the locals.
So, it seems like the Czech proverb we discovered while researching this article is correct:
‘A good neighbour adds value to your property.’
We want all our clients, neighbours, and members of the community to know that we remain here to help the good people of SIDCUP in any way we can.
