It is the season of festivities which can also mean the season of socialising and parties. While we encourage you to enjoy the break, we hope you do so in a safe manner and as a good neighbour. If you are attending any festive house parties or events, consider those around you. Here are our top tips on being a good neighbour.
If you or your housemates decide to have a gathering, give your neighbours a heads up with plenty of notice. It may be worth leaving a contact number so they can let you know of any issues
Avoid excessive music and loud noises, and ensure you are considerate by keeping the volume down, especially as the night progresses. Encourage guests to stay indoors and keep the windows shut.
Check-in with your friends. If they look like they’re struggling, it’s time to act.
Understanding the effects and risks of alcohol and other drugs is so important. Read up; pace yourself; and remember it's OK to say no. The best nights are the ones you can remember. Find out more.
Make sure you all get home safe, share your location, and look after one another.
