Block party organizers in the Battlefords will receive a $200 No Frills food voucher and your application will be waived, according to the City of North Battleford. The City announced Frazer’s No Frills as the official block party sponsor in a statement yesterday.
“Neighbours that know each other look out for each other, they feel a sense of community and belonging,” The City says block parties are a fun way to introduce residents to their neighbourhood.
Residents have many locations they may throw block parties including in a street or back alley, in someone’s backyard, a city park, the Don Ross Community Centre or Credit Union CUplex.
The City believes getting to know your neighbours increases safety and security along with opportunities to save time and money.
“When you know your neighbours, it is easier to spot unusual activity and more likely your neighbours will tell you about something unusual around your home. It is an opportunity to share skills or resources, they might be able to assist you with new technologies and they could assist you with harvesting your vegetable garden.”
