Last year's Good Neighbour of the Award winner Gordon Dixon with runner-up Irene Armstrong
Railway Housing Association has launched a search to find the best neighbours in the properties it owns in the UK
The Good Neighbour Award is designed to recognise the contribution people make to their communities, whether that involves helping someone in need or improving the physical environment.
Anyone who lives in one of the Association’s 1,400-plus properties can nominate a fellow resident for the award and the winner, chosen by a panel of judges, will receive a trophy, plaque and cheque for £50.
Anne Rowlands, Chief Executive of Railway Housing Association, said: “The good neighbour award gives people a chance to pay tribute to any residents of the association who have done something special over the last 12 months.
“This could be because they helped someone out during a time of crisis, were instrumental in getting improvements made in their local area or even just helping out with household chores for others who are unable to do them.”
“Many of our residents are involved in so many selfless acts of kindness to others and through the awards, we want to recognise and reward the work they do.”
Anyone who would like to nominate a resident of Railway Housing Association for the 2012 Good Neighbour Award can do so via the current edition of RHA News, which is the newsletter produced by the Association for all its residents.
