Hi neighbours, I would like to suggest that our Neighbourly Leads consider running a day to celebrate Neighbours Day 2021. Some years ago, the Awapuni Leads ran a stall at St Marks Church fair for neighbours day. Neigbourly supplied us with a large banner, t shirts, giveaways and balloons. We were lucky enough to get funding from mayor Grant Smiths Mayoral fund of a few hundred dollars, that paid for face painting and balloon animals created by a local resident. Our local members all contributed to to a Care and Share table which had jams relishes seeds plants and some craft items. We were also able to supply to a local scout group sausages for a give away sausage sizzle and a donation of water bottles from a local business was really appreciated. I do think that after the chaos of March/April/May 2020, it would be good to see something positive for March 2021. Look on the website Neighbours Day Aotearoa and see what resources are available from that site.
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
Met up with a friend at the Focal point cafe on cuba st, we were very impressed at the food and pricing, do yourself a favour and go have a look, food stunning... sharing my positive experiences.
