Shared barbecues, sport activities and walks in nature can mark the first Neighbours’ Day celebration in Bratislava which will be held at the Partizánska lúka forest park on Friday, May 28, the TASR newswire wrote, quoting Beatrice Szabóová, the spokesperson for the mayor of Bratislava. The initiative aims at bringing neighbours closer together and creating an air of friendliness and togetherness.

The initiative implies that especially in cities and big towns, people often do not know their neighbours and some people live very anonymously. Many people, mainly seniors, feel lonely and not needed. Anyone, who wants to be a co-organiser of this day might do so by meeting neighbours and inviting them on this day – often these events are organised by civic associations, schools, small groups of neighbours, and so forth.
