Uniting Neighbours

Uniting Neighbourhoods

Introduction

Neighbourly is an association of neighbours who share a common set of values and traditions. They beleive in good family values, seeking common good, strong on community and wish to make their neighbourhoods happier and safer places in which to live. In order to maintain the community groups in which neighbours communicate, we have set guidelines. We are not here to police anyone’s thoughts, rather we wish to keep the conversation up building and productive.

The basics

We believe in freedom of speech, however one must note the purpose of our platforms. The Neighbours groups are for discussing neighbourhood related matters and the Watch groups are for real-time crime alerts. No religious or political topics are to be had on our groups as this has the known ability to divide people and not unite.
