Launching on 30th June, NeighbourGood Café aims to help the people of Hackney to connect with their neighbours and forge stronger community bonds.
Love where you live.
The last few years have helped us become more aware of what our neighbourhoods have to offer and consider how we might work together to protect the communities in which we live. As a result, we’ve had the opportunity to get to know our neighbours better than ever before. In fact, Ring’s latest research found a quarter of us (25%) became friendlier with our neighbours during lockdown. Our research also revealed that the connections created during this time appear to have endured, with over a third (36%) feeling that the sense of neighbourly spirit improved since lockdown restrictions lifted*.
One good deed deserves another.
Taking inspiration from the belief that communities are stronger when they work together, we’re introducing the NeighbourGood Café, a limited-edition destination designed to celebrate community spirit and neighbourly goodwill. When the doors open on this unique café, customers like you will be able to “pay” for food and drink with an offer to help fellow neighbours. Whether it’s swapping a pledge for a pastry, or a warm chat for a hot coffee, every visitor to the Café can exchange a good deed for light refreshments.
Make a connection, build your community.
If you have a good deed that you’d like to pledge, you want to get to know your neighbours a little better, or you’re in need of some neighbourly support, then join us at NeighbourGood Café between the 30th June and the 2nd July at 12 Sidworth Street, E8 3SD. Doors open from Thursday 30th June at 12.30pm, and will be open from 8:00am-4pm daily until Saturday 2nd July. Every visitor will be helping to connect the community and make stronger neighbourhood bonds.
If you’re popping by, don’t forget to share your photos and good deed pledges with the hashtag #NeighbourGoodCafe. You can also head to www.ring.com/neighbourgoodcafe for more information. We hope to see you there!
