What could you do to celebrate your neighbourhood - and what could we give you to help you celebrate it?

Entries are open now for the Napier City Council Love Your Neighbourhood competition, a great opportunity for people to come together and create something memorable for their neighbourhood.

It could be anything from organising a street barbecue, waterway clean-up or a planting day, setting up a book exchange or creating an art installation. Up to $8000 is up for grabs.

This is a great chance for formal and informal neighbourhood groups, interest groups and clubs to enhance their own environment, respond to a particular need, encourage new connections or celebrate their unique identity in some way.

To enter, submit a video or multi-media presentation about your project, outlining what you want to do, why you want to do it, who is involved and how much it’ll cost. A video recorded on your phone is fine - a professionally produced piece is not required.

The competition closes on 3 May and the winners, chosen by a judges’ panel comprising Council staff and various community representatives, will be announced on 10 May.
