How much do you have in common with your neighbours?

Friday 22 March 2019, by

Over 80% of people recently said their community was a place where neighbours from different backgrounds get on well together. What’s more, the Gov UK survey found that 73% have a chat with their neighbours at least once a month.

Sometimes it can feel like our hectic modern lives get in the way of community spirit. But your local Butcher doesn’t have to be a stranger. And popping next door to borrow some milk or an egg isn’t a thing of the past.

Gumtree makes it easy to find whatever you need just around the corner – whether it’s a pram for your new arrival or the piano you’ve always dreamed of. You never know, you may have more in common with your neighbours than you think.
