Langford residents gathered last Thursday 25 March to get to know their neighbours and learn more about community safety, at the City of Gosnells third Your Neighbourhood event.

Held to coincide with Neighbour Day, those who attended the event were able to meet City staff, Police Officers and community group members, as well as learn more about personal safety, home security, vehicle security and opportunities to be a part of Neighbourhood Watch.

Mayor David Goode said more than 400 residents attended the free family event, including two Langford residents who won a Neighbour Day hamper and doorbell prize.

“I encourage residents across the City of Gosnells to make every day a Neighbour Day, because when we get to know our neighbours, we are more likely to feel safe and connected, and enjoy where we live,” he said.

“What’s more, well connected neighbourhoods reduce opportunities for crime and antisocial behaviour.”

The event was supported by the WA Police Force, Gosnells District Neighbourhood Watch, Southern River Scout Group, Armadale Police Rangers, Befriend, Relationships Australia, C3 Church Langford, William Langford Community House, Langford Aboriginal Association, Multicultural Community Council of WA and local volunteers who provided ukulele entertainment.
