The Wainuiomata Good Neighbour Award was launched on 1st February 2015.  This is the second time Hutt Safe City Group and Wainuiomata Neighbourhood Support have hosted the event.

The Residents of Wainuiomata had the opportunity to nominate their neighbour for all their kind deeds and consideration.  This goes hand in hand with Neighbourhood Support and making our communities safer and more caring places to live.

There were 43 worthy nominations and the panel of judges had a hard time selecting the winner.  Neighbours were nominated for a number of reasons, mowing lawns, checking on neighbours if the curtains have not been opened, babysitting, baking, litter collection, fixing fences and many more amazing good deeds.
