Winners: Jan & Glenn
“Jan and her husband, Glenn, are the driving force behind our very close-knit street. Most of our neighbours have lived here for at least 30 years and are elderly. Jan regularly organizes showers, life event celebrations and welcome-to-the-neighbourhood parties. In the winter, Jan spearheads a monthly Saturday breakfast for the residents of our street on the second Saturday of every month to which everyone looks forward. As a result, we all know who is away, ill or facing challenges, which allows us to support one another. Jan and Glenn are the first to step up to lend a helping hand for anyone who needs it. It is primarily because of Jan that I boast about having the best neighbours ever and that we all enjoy each other's company and ongoing support. The neighbourhood would not be the same without Jan. Rivershore Crescent in Beaconhill North is a desirable street on which to live. However, if buyers knew the extent to which the neighbourly atmosphere enhances life here, the real estate values would soar even higher than they already are!”
