We organise regular, temporary road closures on residential streets across North Tyneside, creating the time and space for neighbours – young and old – to meet and play, and to share a cuppa and a biscuit. Our experience suggests that most neighbours start to feel more connected with each other when their street gets involved in these kinds of events. We do everything we can to support residents to organise these sessions, helping them to consult their neighbours and liaising with the council of their behalf.
