Do you live in the kindest community? Do you have the best neighbours...if so we want to hear about them!

  • Nominations can be made by writing to The Saga Press Office, Saga Building, Enbrook Park, Folkestone, Kent CT20 3SE or emailing

The search is on for the best ‘good neighbour’ and the most neighbourly community in winter-battered Britain. Saga is launching a “Good Neighbour Roll of Honour” to demonstrate the positive effects the bad weather can have and how it is truly becoming a word for today as neighbours pull together in times of hardship.

“Saga wants to celebrate the good neighbours who are truly making a difference to the lives of older people this Winter and throughout the festive season. “It doesn’t take much – just offering to go out for groceries or providing a lift to get to appointments or a helping hand so they can go on with their normal lives is so important at this time of year and can make a massive difference to our physical and mental wellbeing – for both the helped and the helper.

“We are asking people who are benefiting from the kindness of a good neighbour to let Saga know who they are and we will add their names to our Good Neighbours roll of honour which will be published on the Saga website.

“We only need to know their name - or indeed just their first or nickname and the town or location you and they live in. And then we'd like a short sentence on how they are making a difference in your area while the weather is making life tricky for us all.”
