My Neighbour of the Day Award!

An old friend who lives on Ashmore Park was playing the ‘good neighbour’. Here is what happened in his own words.

“I got out the car just in time to see a stranger going around the back of next-door. so off I went to see what he was up to as the neighbours where out. when I confronted him with what the fxxk you up to mate. he said I just moved in upstairs and have just put some gas on the meter around the back. well I felt embarrassed’ until he said its nice to know that your vigilant thanksfeeling embarrassed!

Well for me Peadar Brewster I love you being a Nosy Neighbour! I hope more of my constituents do what you did to help protect your neighbours property!

So for that I am Awarding you my special Neighbour of the Day Award!

It was a great intervention Peadar, and the retort from your new neighbour shows he was grateful for your intervention……  Please if you do see anyone suspicious, contact the Police or if it is safe for you – just ask the character(s) “What you up too?”….its the way to helping all of us protect our belongings and our property!
