Surrey, BC – Surrey residents can enter to win great prizes this summer by sharing photos of their neighbourhood social activities; from Aug 1 – Sept 17 the City of Surrey is sponsoring a photo contest in celebration of its inaugural ‘Neighbour Day’.

To enter the contest, residents must organize a neighbourhood activity and share a photo of it on the City’s Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts. Add #SurreyNeighbourDay to the photo and be automatically entered to win a weekly $20 coffee card prize, and at the same time, be entered to win the $500 Grand Prize Home Depot gift certificate.

Weekly $20 coffee cards will be drawn Fridays, Aug 5 – Sept 16, from the week’s valid entries. One grand prize winner will be drawn on Monday September 19, 2016 from all valid entries.

Plan a tea or a block party. A sports day, tree planting, or street clean up. As long as it is with neighbours, it qualifies. For ideas, supplies, or to apply for a ‘Celebration & Activity Grant’, visit www.surrey.ca/neighbourhoodteam.

Neighbour Day is a celebration of community, bringing together the people next door, across the street or down the road. Its purpose is to build better relationships with the people who live around us because ultimately a connected community is a happy community. Surrey’s first annual Neighbour Day will be officially celebrated on September 17, 2016.
